Have you ever been put on the spot and asked to explain or defend Catholic teaching on sensitive topics such as abortion, same-sex marriage, or the Eucharist?

In this straightforward and practical resource, Brandon Vogt, bestselling and award-winning author of Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) offers essential tools for articulating even the most contentious aspects of your Catholic faith with clarity and confidence.

What to Say and How to Say It  is based on the content of Brandon Vogt’s ClaritasU—an online community which helps Catholics to understand the Church’s teachings on critical topics, to anticipate the common objections to those issues, and to know how to respond in a calm, clear, and persuasive way.

Vogt gives readers the tools to calmly and intelligently discuss these topics, which dip into the Church’s moral, theological, and philosophical teachings. What to Say and How to Say It provides straightforward, memorable talking points for explaining Catholic teaching in the areas of

  • atheism
  • same-sex marriage
  • transgenderism
  • abortion
  • the Eucharist
  • the problem of suffering
  • the veracity of the gospels

Each chapter offers you an overview of the topic and a clear explanation of what the Church teaches. Then you’ll learn about the most common contemporary arguments against the Church’s teachings followed by step-by-step instructions for responding intelligently and confidently.
