Meet the Author

Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. At age 20 he experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, Jimmy started an intensive study of the Bible, but the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. He entered the Catholic Church in 1992. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in the book Surprised By Truth. Jimmy is a weekly guest on the global radio program, “Catholic Answers Live,” and the author of numerous publications, including the books Mass Confusion: The Do’s and Don’ts of Catholic Worship and The Salvation Controversy.
