Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

World's Expert on CS Lewis and Anglican Priest Jumps the Tiber

From Brandon Vogt's blog we learn that Dr Michael Ward, Anglican priest and CS Lewis expert converted to Catholicism recently. In his interview with Brandon, he gives a concise explanation for why he converted. He discusses how biblical interpretation, sexual ethics, the unity of faith brought about by the papacy, the correct view of Mary, the devotional life of Catholicism( in particular daiily mass), and the Eucharist drew him into the faith over twenty years.

"Michael is a senior research fellow at Blackfriars Hall (University of Oxford) and holds a doctorate in divinity from the University of St. Andrews. He lectures internationally on Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien and Christian apologetics.
After serving as an Anglican priest for many years, including a chaplaincy to St. Peter's College at Oxford, he converted to Catholicism in 2012."
