  • Roy Schoeman was born outside New York City of Jewish parents who had fled Nazi Germany. After receiving his Jewish education and formation under some of the most prominent Rabbis in contemporary American Jewry, he went to college at MIT and then Harvard Business School, where he received an M.B.A. magna cum laude and joined the faculty as a professor of marketing. Midway through his career of teaching at Harvard he received the grace of several supernatural experiences that resulted in his totally unanticipated and enthusiastic conversion to Christianity.
  • Roy shares with us his conversion to Catholicism. He is also the author of “Salvation is from the Jews: The Role of Judaism in Salvation History” and his second book,“Honey from the Rock: Sixteen Jews Find the Sweetness of Christ”.
  • Roy also shares the story of Jean-Marie √Člie Setbon, the son of non-observant French Jews, was first attracted to Jesus when he saw a crucifix at a young age. He hid a crucifix in his room and contemplated it often, even though he knew his family would be hurt and angry if they ever caught him. Jean-Marie’s moving and unusual conversion story is about his battle between loyalty to his identity and fidelity to the deepest desires of his heart. Above all, it is a love story between Christ, the Lover-the relentless yet patient pursuer-and man, his beloved. He is the author of “From the Kippah to the Cross A Jew’s Conversion to Catholicism”
