  • In Can a Catholic Be a Socialist?, Trent Horn and Catherine R. Pakaluk refute this tempting but false notion. Drawing on Scripture, history, Catholic social teaching, and basic economic reality, they show beyond a doubt that Catholicism and socialism are utterly incompatible.

  • Ascending in Hope

What are the different kinds of prayer?

I prayed for something and God didn’t grant it. Why?

Doesn’t the Bible condemn repetitious prayers like the rosary?

Why do I have to say traditional prayers in a church instead of just talking to God in my own way?

Prayer is the Christian’s source of strength and peace, a channel of grace, a medium of joy and consolation. By it we open our minds to the One who made us and loves us, to give him praise and thanks and to tell him our needs. And we also open our hearts to him, asking him for wisdom and direction in our life. But prayer doesn’t always come easily, especially when we have questions about how or why we should do it. 20 Answers: Prayer addresses some of the most common questions, giving you profitable understanding of what prayer is, strategies for praying more often in a busy day, and ways to advance in prayer toward its goal: deeper, more loving communion with God.

The 20 Answers series from Catholic Answers offers hard facts, compelling arguments, and clear explanations of the most important topics facing the Church and the world—all in a compact, easy-to-read package.

  • Reconciling All Truth

Is faith reasonable?

What can we know about God through reason alone?

How can we make sense of Christian beliefs that seem to defy logic and science?

What can I say to people who claim that the God of the Bible is cruel and irrational?

We believe that God is one, and so is his truth. The mysteries he has revealed to the world, the teachings that his Church professes and safeguards, and the conclusions that we reach by the light of natural reason all harmonize and enrich each other. But in a world skeptical of faith and often too clouded by sentiment and sin to wield reason, it can seem that religious truth and rational truth must be enemies—or at least from different worlds. 20 Answers: Faith and Reason shows you how to restore the unity of truth that is our only basis for living a coherent life of the mind and of the soul, helping you tackle both secular skeptics and your own nagging doubts.

  • The rich history and theological, liturgical, and artistic traditions of the twenty-three Eastern Catholic churches are such an indispensable part of the global Catholic communion that, along with the Latin West, these churches are said to form one of the two “lungs” by which the Church breathes and lives. Yet even though Pope St. John Paul II called on the faithful to appreciate the treasures of the Christian East, far too many Catholics remain ignorant of them. 20 Answers: Eastern Catholicism provides an invaluable primer, explaining the origins of the Eastern Catholic churches and how they fit into the one Church of Christ, their distinctive prayers and practices, and some of the common misunderstandings and controversies that even today can cause unnecessary division and confusion.

  • Few Christian groups straddle that fine line between sect and denomination as does the Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Church. On the one hand, its more than 20 million members profess belief in many tenets of Christian orthodoxy, including the Trinity and Christ’s sacrificial atonement on the cross. On the other hand, its murky origins and collection of eccentric doctrines and practices place it on the fringes of Christianity.

In The Great Disappointment—named after the failed eighteenth-century prophecies of Christ’s return that sparked the Adventist movement—Tim Staples takes a deep dive into SDA history and theology, giving you a thorough understanding of its key beliefs and how they stack up to Catholic truths.

Although Seventh-day Adventism may be best known for its insistence on a Saturday Sabbath and traditionally strict rules about diet and lifestyle, Staples says we should pay more attention to the seven major errors in its doctrines. In this thorough but characteristically engaging and accessible four-disc set, he takes you through each error (God has a body, Ellen Gould White was a unique prophet of Christ’s return, the human soul is not immortal, etc.) and refutes it with solid scriptural evidence and commonsense philosophy.

The SDA Church has influenced modern Christian culture in ways well beyond its numbers. Listen to The Great Disappointment and be able to respond to that influence—and to the Adventists in your life—with knowledge and skill.

  • Raised by a Jewish father and an ex-Catholic mother, Trent Horn was adrift in skepticism in his teenage years and believed religion was “a crutch for the simple-minded.”

At the time, Trent:

    Thought that Christians were anti-intellectual
    That they were just a bunch of ignorant Bible-thumpers
    And he particularly enjoyed refuting creationists and people who questioned evolution

But now Trent shares the story of his conversion to the Catholic Faith and how God turned him dramatically around.

In the new audio presentation Following the Evidence, Trent shares how he went from a skeptic in high school to becoming a devout, defender of the Faith.
