Dr. Jay Richards: Former Presbyterian

March 30, 2015

Jay grew up in a Presbyterian family in Texas. He credits his best friend growing up, who was Church of Christ, with his knowledge of the Bible. When he went off to college he experienced a crisis of faith from the challenges he met in class. The writings of C. S. Lewis and the Holy Spirit brought him back from the brink.

I Was An Evangelical Minister Minding My Own Business

December 1, 2014

During Christmas vacation in December of 1997, my wife and I were spending the holidays with her family. At one of my sister-in-law’s homes I found a book sitting on the coffee table called Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic about a fundamentalist/evangelical Christian who had become Catholic. I thought it was a joke book. I had never heard of anyone who became Catholic. In fact, all the Catholics I knew were now Protestants. While there had been times when I was younger that I would have described myself as ... more

God Buried His Seed in My Heart

April 7, 2014

Throughout my life, almost every time I have had a quick, guttural, “absolutely not” reaction or attitude toward something, God has turned it around on me and made me change my mind.

For example, “I don’t know what I’m gonna do, but I’ll tell you one thing: I will never become a teacher” (yes, I ended up getting an Education degree and teaching). ... more

Fr. Donald Calloway: Former Grateful Deadhead

March 22, 2010

Father Donald lived the wild life as a teenager. He was so reckless that the government of Japan kicked him out of the country when he was a teen.

Tom’s intense research and study led him first to Evangelical Protestantism and eventually to full-communion with the Catholic Church. ... more
