The forty-third episode of The Journey Home is titled “Daniel Vinzant: A Southern Baptist Minister Who Became A Catholic” and aired September 25, 1998. It can be viewed online here.
The description under the episode says:
Daniel can’t remember when he didn’t love Jesus, so much so that he was baptized as a Southern Baptist at the age of five. He had read the Bible through twice by the age of nine. At 17, he began preaching the Gospel and for many years he was an active Baptist pastor. His discovery of St. Athanasius and other Church Fathers, as well as the Pro-Life Movement, eventually brought him Home to full-communion with the Catholic Church.
There’s no real point in even watching.
