I had no idea growing up as a Christian-thinking, mainstream, popular young man in Oklahoma in the 1960s and 1970s that I would end up living a life that runs so absolutely obtusely with American culture. But that is what happened, and I am writing to tell you how it all came about. Really, I think that the modern culture is more the one to have changed, with a climax in the 1960s, to run obtusely with a formerly Christian-oriented society. The thought never crossed my mind as a youth that my country and the civilization from which it was born would detour with hyper-space speed to embrace the cold, secularist, anti-Christian culture it sadly glories in today. I made a turn, but it was in the opposite direction toward a dogmatic religion so often despised today by the secular world, called Roman Catholicism. I was called to it by people outside of my circle of childhood friends and acquaintances, outside of time and space now, whom we call saints. I did not come to it on my own merit. What these heavenly friends showed me brought me peacefully to freedom as a whole person with authentic faith, true reason, and a sense of unity through Catholic tradition. They opened the gateway to a new spiritual milieu, that of ancient Christendom, whose high point was in the Middle Ages. My journey to the edifying high lands and clear air of Christendom through the wholeness of the Catholic faith, reason, and tradition is what my book is about.
