Tim Staples Conversion Story DVD - The Bible Made Me Do It


Tim Staples, a nationally recognized apologist, author and radio show host, was raised a Southern Baptist. After falling away from the faith in which he was raised, he returned to his faith by watching televangelists. Tim joined the U.S. Marine Corps soon after, and during his enlistment, he became involved with Christian ministry, moving from his Baptist roots to various Assemblies of God communities.

During his final year in the Marines, however, Tim met Matt Dula, another Marine, who really knew his faith. Matt challenged Tim to study Catholicism from both biblical and historical sources. That encounter sparked a two-year search for the truth. But, Tim was still sure that Catholicism was a non-Christian religion.

After his enlistment was over, Tim, desiring to remain involved in ministry, enrolled at Jimmy Swaggart Bible College, and soon after, he became an Assembly of God Youth Pastor. As an Assembly of God Youth Pastor, and Singles Ministry Leader, Tim used his knowledge of the Bible to attack the Catholic Church, causing many Catholics to question their beliefs and successfully convinced some Catholics to leave the Catholic Church.

Tim was determined to prove Catholicism wrong, but he soon found himself embracing the beauty and riches of the Catholic faith so abundant in Sacred Scripture. Tim he ended up studying his way to the last place he thought he would ever end up: the Catholic Church! Staples gave up his youth pastorate in the Assemblies of God church and converted to the Catholic faith in 1988. Since then Tim's brother, whom he shared his reasons for conversion, has become a Catholic priest and Tim graduated with a degree in philosophy, summa cum laude from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary at Overbrook, Pennsylvania. Tim next studied graduate level theology at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary at Emmetsburg, Maryland, for two years.

As a convert, Tim approaches the subject of Catholicism a bit differently than most. For Tim, just knowing what Catholics believe is not enough, his goal is to show why we believe.

Tim Staples is a popular speaker and travels the country on fire for the faith that he explains so well, because of his extensive knowledge of Sacred Scripture, which he once used to pull Catholics out of the Church. Now, he uses it to keep them in the Church and to bring others to Christ. In this compelling DVD, Tim dramatically recounts his time at Jimmy Swaggart Bible college, his religious debates with a friend in the U.S. Navy and his conversion and what it has meant to him.
