Sobre o livro
As Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called Matthew sitting at the tax office; and he said to him, Follow me. And he rose and followed him. Matthew 9:9
Conversion. The word is often associated with a one-time event, such as the call of Saint Matthew. But even for Matthew, that call was only the beginning, the moment when he started following Jesus. For Matthew, as for all the saints, his conversion lasted a lifetime. Real conversion repentance and turning toward God is a process that happens daily. It is our continual "yes" to the Lord and the grace he offers us.

Through these stories from Scripture, you will encounter Christ again and again, and, with him as your model, youll be drawn into a deeper relationship with the master of conversion.
