Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and raised in Arkansas. He grew up nominally Protestant but at age 20 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. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, "A Triumph and a Tragedy," is published in the book "Surprised by Truth." Jimmy is director of apologetics and evangelization at Catholic Answers, a contributing editor to "This Rock" magazine, a weekly guest on the global radio program "Catholic Answers Live," and the author of several books, including "Mass Confusion: The Do's and Don'ts of Catholic Worship" and "The Salvation Controversy."
