Why We’re Catholic {Book Review}


Why We’re Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love


By Trent Horn

Available through Catholic Answers Press at this link: Why We’re Catholic

This is a friendly, easy to navigate book explaining why we believe the things we believe within the Catholic Faith. While we can be formed in the Faith, we often have difficulty explaining and defending the teachings of the Catholic Faith. This book is a collection of clear and concise, down-to-earth explanations that will certainly help us in our formation, as well as evangelization. It will also help us in those precarious moments when we’re asked questions about the Faith, that we can’t clearly answer.

The Table of Contents gives a great overview of the wide range of teaching covered.

Part 1: Truth and God (Truth, Science, a Creator, God, a God Who conquers evil)
Part 2: Jesus and the Bible (Jesus, the Resurrection, the Trinity, the Bible, why we aren’t Bible-only Christians)
Part 3: The Church and the Sacraments (the Catholic Church, the Pope, priests, Mass, why we baptize babies)
Part 4: Saints and Sinners (why we believe despite scandal, Faith works through love, purgatory, do we pray to the Saints, why we honor Mary)
Part 5: Morality and Destiny (why we protect life, cherish our sexuality, defend marriage, believe there’s a hell, hope for Heaven)

Why We’re Catholic assembles the clearest, friendliest, most helpful answers that Trent learned to give…Beginning with how we can know reality and ending with our hope of eternal life, it’s the perfect way to help skeptics and seekers (or Catholics who want to firm up their faith) understand the evidence that bolsters our belief – and brings us joy.
