A new way to bring the Catholic Faith to young people
Brendan and Erc are just your average interplanetary mailmen trying to find their way in the galaxy. But one day, while piloting cargo through the far reaches of space, they suddenly find themselves on a journey they didn’t expect: a journey to the truth.
A totally new kind of Catholic resource for apologetics and evangelization, The Truth Is Out There combines the visual excitement and quirky humor of graphic novels with solid popular philosophy and theology. The result is a book in which everyone from teens to adults can find accessible answers to questions about God, the soul, true happiness, and much more—and have fun doing it!
And because Brendan and Erc start their journey at the very beginning, readers don’t have to be Catholic—or possess any kind of faith—to appreciate the thoughtful ideas and arguments they’ll encounter. If you just have an open mind (and a sense of adventure) you will come away from these pages with a clearer sense of life’s purpose, and a better understanding of the reasons for believing in God, Jesus, and the Church. And if you’re already a believer, The Truth Is Out There will deepen your knowledge of the Faith and sharpen your skills at defending it.

Trying it out on 8th grade boys. the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 1 Corinthians 3:7
I especially love how it starts at the beginning asking such questions as why does it make sense that there is God, and an immortal soul? Tough questions explained in a way real people can understand. I bought this book for my teenage son. We went through it together and I learned as much as he did. I passed it on to a friend who is 30 and he learned a lot from it. I bought it again for a friend who is a cradle Catholic but going through a tough time.
