Steve Ray, Catholic Convert, Speaker & Author
Stephen K. Ray was born in 1954 to parents who had just become Christians through a Billy Graham Crusade. In 1976 Stephen married Janet who came from a long line of Protestants. Her ancestry was traced to pilgrims who came from England on the Mayflower & Hussite Protestants from Moravia who joined the Protestant Reformation in the 1600s. Prior to 1994 neither Steve or Janet had ever set foot in a Catholic Church. After studying many books to convince their best friend and recent convert, Al Kresta, that the early church was evangelical, Steve and Janet backed their way right into the Catholic Church. Steve began writing a letter to his father explaining why they became Catholic…this letter soon became the book Crossing the Tiber: Evangelical Protestants Discover the Historic Church Since then Steve’s passion for the depth of truth found within the Catholic tradition has led him to walk away from his business and pursue what he really loves–writing, speaking, producing Catholic films and leading pilgrimages to Biblical Lands.
Steve is a regular guest on Catholic radio & TV including Catholic Answers, Ave Maria Radio, Relevant Radio & EWTN. He writes Bible Studies for Catholic Scripture Study International.
