Roy Schoeman was born and raised Jewish by Jewish parents who had fled Nazi Germany. Growing up he received a thorough Jewish education, followed by a Bachelor of Science degree from MIT, and an M.B.A. magna cum laude from Harvard Business School, where he then joined the faculty as a professor of marketing. While a Jewish Marketing Professor at Harvard Business School, he received two supernatural experiences –one of Christ and one of the Blessed Virgin Mary – that resulted in his unanticipated and enthusiastic conversion to Catholicism.
Now he writes, speaks, and teaches on Catholic theology, focusing on the relationship between Judaism and the Catholic Church. He has written two best-selling books published by Ignatius Press — Salvation is from the Jews: The Role of Judaism in Salvation History, and Honey from the Rock: Sixteen Jews Find the Sweetness of Christ, taught theology at Ave Maria University and Holy Apostles College and Seminary, hosts a weekly Catholic radio show on Radio Maria, has a daily internet livestream, and appears frequently on EWTN television and radio shows, including “EWTN Live”, “The Journey Home”, “Bookmark”, and “Women of Grace”, and gives talks, missions, and retreats throughout the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and South and Central America.
