Eric Sammons is the author of the books Who is Jesus Christ? Unlocking the Mystery in the Gospel of Matthew and Holiness for Everyone, published by Our Sunday Visitor, as well as the High School textbook Ecumenism and Interreligious Dialogue, part of the Didache Series.

Sammons began his study of the Catholic faith in 1991 as an Evangelical Protestant, leading to his conversion to the Catholic Church in 1993. He continued his studies of Catholicism and received his Master's of Theology degree at Franciscan University of Steubenville. His studies have focused on Scriptural interpretation, Patristics, and Christian spirituality.

Sammons' exploration of the Catholic faith and the Scriptures has been informed by years of evangelization and apologetical activities. He is Director of Evangelization for the Diocese of Venice in Florida and has organized parish missions, door-to-door evangelization campaigns, and public forums on the Catholic faith. The emphasis of these activities has been to bring others to a deeper intimacy with the person of Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church. His speaking experience includes talks about the Catholic faith at parish missions, Men's Conferences, pre-Cana marriage preparation seminars, parish Bible studies, and public question-and-answer sessions. A door-to-door evangelization campaign that Sammons initiated and organized was spotlighted by The Paulist National Catholic Evangelization Association and The Catholic Standard.

Sammons has appeared on EWTN and is a frequent guest on Catholic radio, including "The Son Rise Morning Show", "Kresta in the Afternoon", and "Catholic Answers Live." He was also the co-host of the Washington, DC radio show "Catholic Matters." His articles have appeared in OSV Newsweekly, Homiletic & Pastoral Review, the Florida Catholic, Catholic Online and CatholicExchange.com.

Before working for the Diocese of Venice, Sammons worked in the field of internet technologies, owning a software development firm for over a decade. He also co-founded Little Flowers Foundation, a non-profit whose mission was to assist Catholic families seeking to adopt special-needs children. During its nine years of existence, Little Flowers Foundation distributed more than $160,000 in grants to assist in the adoption of over 30 children.

Sammons has been married for over 18 years to his beautiful bride, Suzan, who has been deeply involved in pro-life work over the years, spending countless hours praying and sidewalk counselling in front of abortion clinics. They have seven children and reside in Venice, Florida.
