How can you believe all this stuff?

This is the number-one question Catholics get asked—and, sometimes, we ask ourselves. Why do we believe that God exists, that he became a man and came to save us, that what looks like a wafer of bread is actually his body? Why do we believe that he inspired a holy book and founded an infallible Church to teach us the one true way to live?

Ever since he became Catholic, Trent Horn has spent a lot of time answering these questions, trying to explain to friends, family, and total strangers the reasons for his faith

  • Some didn’t believe in God, or even in the existence of truth.
  • Others said they were spiritual but didn’t think you needed religion to be happy.
  • Some were Christians who thought Catholic doctrines over-complicated the pure gospel.
  • And some were fellow Catholics who had a hard time understanding everything they professed to believe on Sunday.

Why We’re Catholic assembles the clearest, friendliest, most helpful answers that Trent learned to give to all these people and more. 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.

"Catholic Answers has carried out a wonderful, apologetic ministry explaining, defending, and advancing the mission of the Church for many years. Trent Horn's Why We're Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love is the latest and very useful tool in that work: clear, practical, simply organized, very readable and rich in content. It's a pleasure to recommend it."
—Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia

"Whoever loves Christ wants to make Him known. But we can only make Him known if we live our faith and can put it into words. Trent Horn's Why We’re Catholic helps us do precisely that. This book is made for the challenges of our times--I highly recommend it."
—Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Diocese of Phoenix

"Finally! A concise, courteous, and convincing booklet to hand to friends and strangers about the reasonableness of Catholicism."
—Matt Fradd

“If you’ve ever wondered why Catholics believe what they do, Trent’s book is the ideal resource to find the answers. With great clarity and charity, he walks the reader through the most common objections and questions people have about Catholicism. Whether you’re a Catholic looking to deepen your faith or you’re curious about the claims made by the Church, you need to read Why We’re Catholic.”
—Jason Evert, author of Saint John Paul the Great: His Five Loves

"I’ve often said that Trent Horn is the best Catholic apologist alive today, and now he’s written the book that screams “where have you been all my life?" — the simplest, most thorough, most accessible answers to practically every question and objection that atheists, agnostics, secularists, Protestants, and even fellow Catholics may have regarding Catholicism. Why We’re Catholic must find a home on every Catholic’s bookshelf; I promise you, it will gather no dust."
—Leila Miller, author of Primal Loss: The Now Adult Children of Divorce Speak Out

“Why do you believe in God? Why are you Catholic? Why do you pray to the Saints? Why, why, why? Rather than view these questions as an attack, I like to think of them as opportunities to share the "Good News". In his new book, Why We're Catholic, Trent Horn gives you the insight to answer the difficult questions and truly make a difference in the lives of others. It has a permanent place on my bookshelf. It would fit nicely on yours too!”
—Gary Zimak, Catholic speaker, author and radio host

“Let’s face it: some books about Catholicism are overly academic and boring . . . but not this one! Trent’s writing is clear, easy, engaging, and a reminder of the reason for our hope. It should inspire non-Catholics and reignite in Catholics the love for our faith.”
—Rose Sweet, Catholic author and speaker

“In Why We’re Catholic, Trent Horn successfully debunks many of the myths and logical fallacies of atheism and anti-Catholicism. Laying out his arguments in a clear and well-organized flow from one chapter to the next, he brings the reader along, anticipating questions, and giving satisfying answers to all the most common objections. After reading this book, a skeptic will be out of arguments against the Church.”
—James L. Papandrea, author of Handed Down: The Catholic Faith of the Early Christians

    Solid start

    Posted by Sara on Sep 28th 2022

    The book flows nicely from topic to topic to walk someone through the basics of the Catholic faith. I was hoping for some more meat as far as biblical backing for objections, especially to answer more fundamentalist oppositions. Overall and informative read.

    A Must-Read for People of Any Spiritual Background

    Posted by Emily Polasek on Aug 28th 2022

    This book is a game-changer when it comes to apologetics. Trent defends the faith with a logical simplicity. If I weren't already Catholic, I would definitely be after reading this book. It doesn't matter where you fall spiritually right now--Trent's explanations meet you where you're at and help you understand how we are loved by Jesus through His Church.

    Comprehensive and Compelling

    Posted by Steve D on Apr 28th 2022

    This book touched on many important aspects of Catholicism and provided sound reasons in support of the faith. I appreciated the logical approach to each topic. Even as a lifelong Catholic, I learned new things and gained insight and understanding about many aspects of the faith. I highly recommend this book!

    This had been my favorite Catholic book (after The Bible). It's a clear explaination of beliefs that helps me defend my faith.

    Great Tool

    Posted by Brian Beddoes on Mar 7th 2022

    I've purchased three copies of this book so far. One for me, one for my 10 year old daughter, and one for a friend that was raised outside of any religion. Great tool for helping somebody be able to articulate their faith. This should be a requirement for every faithful teen getting ready to start college.

    Excellent book!

    Posted by Paul Curry on Feb 23rd 2022

    I was planning to buy this book, but I ended up receiving it from my RCIA instructor. As always, Trent Horn is clear and concise in this book and explains everything you should know as to why you are a Catholic. Trent makes everything make sense! You will find yourself reading each page and wanting to read it to your Protestant friends and family. Or even better, give it to them! Another great book from CA.
