A Stranger at Your Door confronts you with the most important question in your life: the decision about Christ. Here Fr Powell proposes two objectives: first to help people discern and decide what to do about 'the stranger at the door'; second to encourage people to take time out to meditate on this all important decision, what to do about 'the stranger at the door'.

The book you are holding in your hands is a humble treatment of a magnificent theme: the claims of the person of Christ and his divine authority in the Church. These are transcendent realities which demand profound consideration both by the person who has accepted to live by them and the person who stands before these truths in humble inquiry and quest of certainty. The former needs to be strengthened in her faith which will tend to grow weak unless bolstered up by such meditation. The latter needs these reflections, too, in order to prepare herself for the gift of faith and the acceptance of Christ's call. A Stranger at Your Door is addressed to both these people in the hope that it will help them to a happier and holier life, in and through Christ.

One important suggestion: do not just read these pages; study them; think about them; think around and beyond them. The latent energies of such a prayerful reading will reach powerfully into your life. It will be the most important decision you have over come to, a decision for eternity.
