Richard Maffeo was born into a Jewish home in the early 1950s. In 1972 he discovered Jesus is the Jewish Messiah, and he dove into his awakened faith with a passion that continues to this present day. Richard spent 33 years in evangelical Protestant churches until he realized God was calling him to the Catholic Church. He was received into the Church in 2005. He has written three books, writes a blog, and teaches an online Bible study (YouTube). You can find his blog at www.thecontemplativecatholicconvert.blogspot.com.

Richard and his wife Nancy are married 40 years. They have three grown children.
