Description

“The true magic of this book is that it’s hardly one whose aim is solely pointed at non-Catholics. Why I Am Catholic can play an equally pivotal role in reinvigorating (or perhaps just “invigorating”) those already in the bosom of the Church. The book is fantastic. It's clear, concise, and persuasive all in the same breath.”—Matthew Sewell, National Catholic Register

Now in paperback, Brandon Vogt’s bestselling and award-winning Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) serves as a compelling reproposal of the Church to former Catholics, a persuasive argument for truth and beauty to those who have become jaded and disenchanted with religion, and at the same time offers practicing Catholics a much-needed dose of confidence and clarity to affirm their faith against an increasingly skeptical culture.

Like many millennials, Vogt—content director of Bishop Robert Barron’s Word on Fire Catholic Ministries—considered himself  “spiritual, but not religious” until, as a mechanical engineering student at Florida State University, he began a passionate search for truth that led him—to his great surprise—to the Catholic Church in 2008.

Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) traces Vogt’s spiritual journey, making a refreshing, twenty-first-century case for the faith and answering questions being asked by agnostics, nones, and atheists—the audience for his popular website, StrangeNotions.com, where Catholics and atheists dialogue.

With references to Catholic thinkers such as G. K. Chesterton, John Henry Newman, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and Bishop Robert Barron, Vogt draws together lines of evidence to help seekers discover why they should be Catholic as an alternative. At the same time, he helps practicing Catholics affirm and strengthen their faith, giving them tools to answer the skeptics.

Praise

"One of the radiant lights of the New Evangelization."

"Brandon Vogt boldly affirms the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Catholic faith. He's one of the radiant lights of the New Evangelization."

Most Rev. Robert Barron
Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles

"The best book on apologetics I’ve read in a long time."

"Why I Am Catholic is the best book on apologetics I’ve read in a long time and one of the few apologetics books I’d feel comfortable sharing with non-Catholics."

Rev. Matthew Schneider, L.C.

"Clear and reasonable."

"I wish I’d read this book back when I was an atheist—I would have become Catholic much sooner! Brandon Vogt makes clear, reasonable arguments that will resonate with people from any faith background."

Jennifer Fulwiler
Catholic radio host and author of Something Other Than God

"Truly masterful."

"This book is clear, concise, and persuasive all in the same breath. Seeing the Church's truth, goodness, and beauty so effortlessly spelled out without getting too technical is truly masterful."

Matthew Sewell
