“My parents were both converts…” – Dr. Matthew Bunson
Dr. Matthew Bunson’s mother was Episcopalian, and his father Jewish. In the 1940’s, independent of one another, they each began an extraordinary journey to the Catholic Church: his mother after tripping over a Baltimore Catechism in the Chicago snow, and his father after helping liberate Dachau during World War II. Dr. Bunson shares what it was like to be a cradle Catholic raised by two converts, and what the generational impact of conversion can look like. He’s also a great storyteller – we think you’ll really enjoy this one!
Dr. Matthew Bunson is the author or editor of a number of books, including the Encyclopedia of U.S. Catholic History. A Senior Contributor to EWTN, his writings are regularly featured at the National Catholic Register.
