Dr. Dawn Eden Goldstein – Convert from Judaism
In a return visit to The Journey Home, Dr. Dawn Eden Goldstein shares her journey from Judaism through rock journalism and the writings of G.K. Chesterton to the Catholic Church. She also discusses the role that the Church’s teachings on the sanctity of human life played in that process. And as a survivor of sexual abuse as a child, Dawn also discusses with frankness and charity her reasons for remaining in the Catholic Church in the midst of sexual abuse and cover-up by Her clergy.
Dawn has also written her story in a memoir for Catholic Answers: Sunday Will Never Be the Same: A Rock and Roll Journalist Opens Her Hears to God.
Dawn received her doctorate in sacred theology (S.T.D.) summa cum laude from the University of St. Mary of the Lake in 2016. She has served on the theology faculty of Holy Apostles College and Seminary and that of St. Mary’s College, Oscott, the seminary of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, England. She is the author of a number of books, including Sunday Will Never Be the Same: A Rock and Roll Journalist Opens Her Ears to God.
