Ignatius Insight interviews Steve Ray on the subject of “Traveling With the Apostolic Fathers.”

Author and apologist Steve Ray, along with his wife Janet, entered the Catholic Church in 1994, a journey from the Baptist tradition to Catholicism described in Ray’s first book, Crossing the Tiber: Evangelical Protestants Discover the Historical Church. Since then he has been busy with writing more books, giving numerous talks, and producing an award-winning video series for Ignatius Press called The Footprints of God: The Story of Salvation from Abraham to Augustine.

Ray’s other books are Upon This Rock: St. Peter and the Primacy of Rome in Scripture and the Early Church, and St. John\’s Gospel: A Bible Study Guide and Commentary. Steve recently finished producing the seventh video in the Footprints of God series, titled Apostolic Fathers: Handing on the Faith, now available from Ignatius Press.
