Ex-Catholic Editor Publishes Book about His Transition to Judaism
Colorado Springs publishing consultant Kenneth Guentert has published a trade paperback edition of his own 50,000-word memoir, From Rome to Jerusalem: A Non-Jew on the Way, about his decades long transition from Catholicism to Judaism.
The paperback (5.5"x8.5", 180 pages) has just become available from Amazon for $20.00. The ebook has been available since December for $9.95 at smashwords.com, a website that enables publishers and authors to distribute their books as multi-format ebooks.
"This book does not attack the church," Guentert said. "Because I've been involved in Catholic publishing for most of my career, I'm an unlikely candidate to move toward Orthodox Judaism. People kept asking me to write my memoir—and explain myself. I finally did it."
Guentert was a seminarian for six years and graduated from the University of Notre Dame. His first job out of college was as a staff writer for the The New World, the official newspaper for the Archdiocese of Chicago. After that he served as an editor for U.S. Catholic, the National Catholic Reporter, and Modern Liturgy (now Ministry&Liturgy)
Today, Kenneth Guentert is president of The Publishing Pro, LLC, which makes professional publishing accessible—and fun—to everyone. His professional website is http://www.thepublishingpro.com.
