Mine started on a Christian roleplaying website where I was the only Catholic (and I was only Catholic by baptism, not by practice at the time). Fortunately, everyone was nice and most had Catholic family members. I was asked a few questions about Catholicism that I had no idea about so I went to Mary Immaculate Catholic Bookstore and found the answers in a few apologetics books. I fell in love with those books.
Rural Georgia? Have you ever listened to John Martignoni of the Bible Christian Society[/url:1ftb5e09]? His ministry is in Birmingham, AL. He has six free tapes at his website and every one of them is great. I really enjoy his method of apologetics – very friendly, very basic, good for starters.
