"You're what? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard!" Such was the response John Bergsma got from his brother Tim after breaking the news that he was becoming Catholic.
What would lead a young man who grew up in a devout Protestant home, earned two Masters degrees at a rigorous Calvinist seminary, and spent four years as an inner-city pastor, suddenly to convert to the Roman Catholic Church?
Did he not know the "errors of Papism"? Was he confused? Psychologically unstable? Or was there some ulterior motive?
Judge for yourself as Dr. Bergsma, now a professor of theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, tells the story of his unlikely and unexpected journey into the Catholic Church.

Mass Conversion: How I Discovered the Eucharist and the Catholic Church
As an adult convert to Catholicism after having been devoutly Protestant, Dr. Bergsma's conversion story inspires me to learn and grow in my faith even more. He is a dynamic speaker and I love attending his seminars and listening to his CDs. I always feel the Holy Spirit at work and always come away refreshed and renewed.
I love it! It's engaging and very instructive. Made me want to know and understand my faith at a deeper level. I wish I could listen to every single mp3 you offer nonstop. I keep a notepad close to write bible verses and other pertinent info to look into it when I have time. Thank you so much for all you do and for instructing me.
I have only listened to this talk one time, so far. This is a great conversion story, and Dr. Bergsma gives many tips to help us in our evangelizing efforts. I must warn you....he has a GREAT sense of humor! Thanks be to God for all you do, Dr. Bergsma.
Get this talk, learn from it, enjoy it, and share it!
