About the Series
This benchmark series brings together the expert knowledge and personal insight of today’s top Catholic apologists on topics at the heart of the Catholic faith. Whether you’re a non-Catholic who wants to learn about the Church’s teaching, or a Catholic who wants to become a more articulate defender of the faith, the Catholic for a Reason series is for you.
“Too many Catholics have suffered amnesia about the urgency of sharing their faith for the salvation of the world. To be better evangelizers, Catholics must first be better rememberers. The core memories of the Christian faith include not only sacred Scripture, but also the lived experience and learned wisdom of the believing community—which we call Tradition. We will do a much better job of preaching Jesus Christ to the world when we wake up as believers and remember who we are, why and what we believe how we got here, and from Whom our Catholic faith comes. This book, as you will discover, is an ideal place to start.”— Most. Rev. Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., D.D., Archbishop of Denver
