Jon Sweeney, a self-described "evolved Protestant" andnoted religious writer, has long been fascinated by the CatholicChurch. However, it wasn't until he was a young missionary inthe Philippines that he truly began to understand theChurch's traditions, mysteries, and religious beliefs and itshold on those who follow the tradition. As he explains, Catholicspirituality is all about responding to the fundamental mystery ofJesus, the incarnation, and what it all meant in the beginning aswell as what it means today.

In Almost Catholic, Sweeney offers an appreciation ofCatholicism, weaving in the story of his own explorations withthose of others who have also been attracted to this tradition. Hefinds himself drawn to the Church's ancient and medievaltraditions out of a desire to connect with the deepest and widestpaths on the way. Two millennia of saints and practices andteachings and mystery form a connection for him to the verybeginnings of Christianity.
