Why We’re Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love
This is an easy to read text that gives a basic overview of the Catholic faith. It would be a good read for almost anyone, Catholics and non-Catholics alike. It begins with the epistemological underpinnings of truth and then considers the difference between objectivity (what is true for all) and subjectivity (think of preferences, like your favorite color). Our beliefs in God, Jesus and the Catholic Church are then explained through this philosophical lens. It covers many common misconceptions with easy to understand, convincing arguments. This is a great entry level text and has enough meat that even a seasoned Catholic will appreciate the read. Click here to find out why we’re Catholic.
