There is a person in my life who, when we met was an atheist. It seems that this person is now agnostic. In fact she may be even a little farther down the line, she may actually believe in a creator, which may and probably will lead her down the road to be thinking about God the creator. Does anyone have any idea how to lead this person toward the True God? I don’t think that I’ll have much of a problem if she gets that far since the Catholic Church’s claims that she is the true Christian Church is easy to prove IMHO. Any comments, hints, or book recommendations will be appreciated.

Sorry you haven't gotten more responses, but it's hard to give a specific answer to a question like this without knowing more about the person involved. If we knew a little more (e.g. what's her educational background, how much interest/tolerance/ability does she have with respect to serious philosophical writings, etc.) it would be easier to make suggestions. Not that Athanasius's suggestions aren't good.

The only thing I know for sure is that she is very, very intelligent. :jesus: (the icon doesn't have much to do with the post, I just like it)
