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.”
We live in an age in which computers are changing countless aspects of our lives. One of the things they are changing for people of faith is the way that we study the Bible.
Over the last few decades, I’ve watched how Bible study software has developed, and it’s reached a point at which it’s capable of doing truly amazing things—things that were practically impossible only a few years ago, even for people with extensive research libraries at their disposal.
Among these things is the ability of biblical scholars to do complex studies of the way words and grammar are used in the biblical texts. These have shed new light on how the authors of the sacred books wrote and what they meant.
But Bible software isn’t just helping high-level scholars. It has something to offer everyone. Whether you are a priest, a deacon, a DRE, a catechist, a student, or just an ordinary person, Bible study software has ways of helping you learn God’s word better and grow closer to him.
In this episode of my show, I interview an expert on Bible software for Catholics and explore the many ways it can be of benefit to you and enrich your faith life.
