Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. But at age 20 he experienced a profound conversion to Christ. He planned on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, and he started an intensive study of the Bible. The thing was, the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he had to become Catholic, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in the book Surprised By Truth.
These days, he is a Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a member on the Catholic Answers Speakers Bureau, a weekly guest on the global radio program “Catholic Answers Live,” a contributor to Catholic Answers Magazine, and the author of more publications than you can shake a stick at. His books include The Fathers Know Best, Mass Revision, and The Salvation Controversy.
