Jimmy was born in Texas, grew up nominally Protestant, but at age 20 experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, he started an intensive study of the Bible. But the more he immersed himself in Scripture the more he found to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he entered the Catholic Church. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in Surprised by Truth. Besides being an author, Jimmy is the Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a contributing editor to Catholic Answers Magazine, and a weekly guest on “Catholic Answers Live.”
Just wanted to let folks know about a neat little app that Logos Bible Software has just released to help Catholics (and others) learn about the upcoming conclave.
The app is FREE and is available both for iOS (iPhone/Pod/Pad) and Android.
They really rushed to get it out so that we'd have it in time for the conclave, and I know people at Logos who spent long nights getting it ready.
It's got some really cool features and material (including some by yours truly) and ways to stay in touch with important Catholic information sources, like the National Catholic Register and Catholic Answers.
Here's a description of the app:
