Roger Dubin: Convert from Judaism
Roger was brought up in a culturally Jewish home in New York. Though he was only nominally Jewish, he held a deep prejudice against Christians and especially towards Catholics—who were blamed for the medieval passion plays, the pogroms, the worldwide discrimination, even some aspects of the Holocaust. His journey to Christ and the Catholic Church is one of is a fascinating odyssey that took him from North Africa to an airport lobby weeping with joy over the election of Pope Benedict XVI. Roger is the author of the novel The Coin of the Realm.
