Forty Reasons I Am a Catholic

$14.95

About this item

My title explains itself.

But it’s misleading.

There are more than 40 reasons.

In fact, there are at least ten to the 82nd power, which, I am told, is the number of atoms in the universe. And that’s just in ordinary matter, which makes up only 4.9% of the universe, the rest being dark matter and dark energy.

Each of my reasons is an independent point, so I have not organized this book by a succession of chapters or headings. After all, most readers only remember a few big ideas or separate points after reading a book. (I’ve never heard anyone say “Oh, that was a good continuous-process-of-logically-ordered-argumentation” but I’ve often heard people say, “Oh, that was a good point.”

Which takes me back to my main point: “Why are you a Catholic?” is a good question.

A good question deserves a good answer.

Here are forty of mine.

Extremely important book for today's disinterested culture...
The book is brilliant in its very simplicity. And for those well-versed in apologetics, this boils all the theological nuances (which are of little interest to the vast majority of laymen) down to extremely attractive, thought-provoking and strong bullet points that can be easily remembered and shared with people in real life and online where the attention span is severely lacking. Can't recommend it enough.

Dr. Kreeft strikes again
Dr. Peter Kreeft is one of the most thoughtful, intellectual, and entertaining modern-day religious thinkers. He has a way of effortlessly dissecting an argument and presenting it casually and simply like C.S. Lewis so often did. While his ideas may not sway adamant objectors, anyone with an open mind will find plenty to think about. All he can do is plant the seeds - and he does it like few others.

Peter Kreeft hit on so many topics and answers so many questions.
Such a good scholar and communicator. Short and concise. Easy read yet filled with accurate, details concerning the Catholic Church and her history. Well worth the read.

I see the light
As a Protestant I had a lot of ignorance and prejudice about Catholics. Peter Kreeft has done more than any author to help me see the beauty and truth in the Catholic tradition. My recent discovery of Chesterton has helped in this regard as well.
