Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Ph.D.
Marcellino D’Ambrosio initially set his sights on stardom, playing bass guitar in several popular rock bands by the time he was 16. But a deeper encounter with Christ changed his course and led to a Ph.D.theology under the guidance the renowned Jesuit theologian, Avery Cardinal Dulles.
Dr. D’Ambrosio, the father of five and a business owner, brings to his teaching a practical, down-to-earth, and humorous perspective that makes his words easy to understand and enjoyable to hear. He is a world renowned commentator on Catholic issues who has appeared on Fox News’ “Geraldo Rivera At Large” and The O’Reilly Factor to discuss the legacy of Pope John Paul II. His book The Guide to the Passion, answering 100 questions about Mel Gibson’s film, hit #6 on the New York Times best-sellers list with over a million copies sold.
In 2001 Dr. D’Ambrosio left his teaching position at the University of Dallas to direct www.CrossroadsInitiative.com, one of the leading websites in the Catholic world, and to oversee the growth of Wellness Business Ventures, a company promoting physical, mental, and financial freedom. He, his wife Susan and their five children reside near Dallas, TX.
