Dan Burke: Convert from Judaism
Dan Burke’s father was an agnostic but his mother was a practicing reformed Jew whose familial roots were in Russian Judaism. It was from that side of the family that Dan took his identity. At around age ten, his parents divorced. Emotionally and physically, Dan suffered and it was through that suffering that he sought the meaning of life and truth. It would be a lifelong journey which brought him through new age thought, evangelicalism, Calvinism, and Anglicanism. Ultimately, it was reading the Church Fathers and having encountering the living Christ that would lead Dan into the Catholic Church. Today, he is the executive director of the “National Catholic Register”.
