The rich traditions of the Catholic Church were etched firmly into the lives of Eric and Marilyn Shuster. He led liturgical music for the church and she was a former Franciscan nun with a degree in Catholic theology. They hadn t thought of leaving their beloved Catholicism, but everything changed when they moved next door to a Mormon family and learned about a form of Christianity they had never considered.
After a year of miraculous experiences and challenging theological study, Eric and Marilyn were baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1989. While they were excited about this new transition, they wondered what would come of their deep Catholic roots. In the nearly two decades that followed, they grafted into those roots the doctrines and principles of the restored gospel, resulting in a spiritual harvest for them and their family.
This is the story of their conversion, as told by Eric, along with a respectful and enlightening comparison of 40 key doctrines between Catholicism and Mormonism that testified to them of the restoration of the gospel.
