in paperback, Brandon Vogt’s bestselling and award-winningWhy I
Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) serves as a compelling
reproposal of the Church to former Catholics, a persuasive argument
for truth and beauty to those who have become jaded and disenchanted
with religion, and at the same time offers practicing Catholics a
much-needed dose of confidence and clarity to affirm their faith
against an increasingly skeptical culture.
many millennials, Vogt—content director of Bishop Robert Barron’s
Word on Fire Catholic Ministries—considered himself “spiritual,
but not religious” until, as a mechanical engineering student at
Florida State University, he began a passionate search for truth that
led him—to his great surprise—to the Catholic Church in 2008.
I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) traces Vogt’s spiritual
journey, making a refreshing, twenty-first-century case for the faith
and answering questions being asked by agnostics, nones, and
atheists—the audience for his popular website, StrangeNotions.com,
where Catholics and atheists dialogue.
references to Catholic thinkers such as G. K. Chesterton, John Henry
Newman, St. Teresa of Calcutta, and Bishop Robert Barron, Vogt draws
together lines of evidence to help seekers discover why they should
be Catholic as an alternative. At the same time, he helps practicing
Catholics affirm and strengthen their faith, giving them tools to
answer the skeptics.
