121: A Kurdish Christian’s Incredible Journey into Catholicism (w/ Timothy Ezat)

121: A Kurdish Christian’s Incredible Journey into Catholicism (w/ Timothy Ezat) August 4, 2021

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Timothy Ezat. Timothy grew up as a nominal Muslim and then a nominal atheist in Kurdistan, Iraq. Under threat of violence and persecution, he converted to Evangelical Christianity at the age of 15 in an underground church.

From there, Timothy moved to London, became involved in missionary work, and eventually became ordained as an Anglican priest. But his early reading of the Church Fathers and his deep love of the Bible led him to continue to ask questions about his faith and, eventually, led him to make the decision to become Catholic.

This is a truly remarkable conversation!
