A native Texan, Devin Rose grew up in an atheistic home and achieved great success academically and in sports. But during college, he began suffering from a social anxiety disorder and panic attacks, leading him to question the foundation of his atheism. Ultimately this search brought him to God, and in the year 2000 he became a Southern Baptist. He dove into the Christian Faith and learned everything he could about the issues that divide Protestants and Catholics. This search led him to full communion with the Catholic Church. He now works as a software developer and in his free time writes articles on adoption, Catholic fatherhood, and apologetics. In 2011 he released his first book, If Protestantism is True: The Reformation Meets Rome (Unitatis, 2011). Devin and his wife live in the Southwest with their four children.
