Nicole DeMille is a stay-at-home mother of two children living in the Cleveland suburb of Chagrin Falls. A native New Yorker, this Ohio transplant changed more than her home state, she changed her theology and her life when she converted to Catholicism from lifelong membership in the Lutheran Church. Nicole is a high school English teacher by profession, but now spends her days raising her children full time and actively participating in Catholic school and parish life at St. Anselm Church in Chesterland, Ohio. Her particular focus is on educating people about the healing power of the Church’s teachings, and how the Church’s radical message for the individual and for society is truly the only hope we have.
The author, Roy Schoeman, was born in a suburb of New York City of “Conservative” Jewish parents who had fled Nazi Germany. His Jewish education and formation was received under some of the most prominent Rabbis in contemporary American Jewry, including Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, probably the foremost Conservative Rabbi in the U.S. and his hometown Rabbi growing up; Rabbi Arthur Green, later the head of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College who was his religion teacher and mentor during high school and early college; and Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, a prominent Hasidic Rabbi with whom he lived in Israel for several months. His secular education included a B.Sc. from M.I.T. and an M.B.A. magna cum laude from Harvard Business School. Midway through a career of teaching and consulting (he had been appointed to the faculty of the Harvard Business School) he experienced an unexpected and instantaneous conversion to Christianity which led to a dramatic refocus of his activities. Since then he has pursued theological studies at several seminaries, helped produce and host a Catholic Television talk show, and edited and written for several Catholic books and reviews.
