Conversion Study Guide


The study guide for the Conversion study program will enhance your understanding and experience of Bishop Barron’s presentation on the lifelong process of conversion. It is divided into sections corresponding to each section of Bishop Barron's presentation.

Using six stories from the Bible, Bishop Barron demonstrates how ordinary, sinful people are met by Jesus and called to a better life through him. Conversion is not so much a one-time event, but a life-long process of focusing our attention and energy toward an ever-deepening relationship with Christ. 

Bishop Robert Barron illuminates six biblical stories of conversion, demonstrating how six ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through Him.




1. Bartimaeus

2. The Rich Young Man

Study individually or in a Group

You can watch the DVD and then probe more deeply into Bishop Barron’s message by using the companion Study Guide, which is divided into sections that correspond to each part of Father's presentation. The Study Guide was written by Catholic author Amy Welborn, under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron.

Each section provides “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation and references from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and “Questions for Reflection" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.

For group study, you can present the program in eight 90-minute sessions. Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions.  Participants should prepare the questions on their own after viewing the DVD but before the small group discussion.

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for group discussion leaders including the DVD, lessons, facilitator guide, answer key and prayer cards. In addition, leaders can access free, downloadable promotional materials and other tools using the “Support Materials” tab above.
