Publisher's Summary

My title explains itself. But it's misleading. There are more than 40 reasons.

In fact, there are at least 10 to the 82nd power, which, I am told, is the number of atoms in the universe. And that's just in ordinary matter, which makes up only four-point-nine percent of the universe, the rest being dark matter and dark energy.

Each of my reasons is an independent point, so I have not organized this book by a succession of chapters or headings. After all, most people only remember a few big ideas or separate points after reading or listening to a book. I've never heard anyone say "Oh, that was a good continuous-process-of-logically-ordered-argumentation" but I've often heard people say, "Oh, that was a good point."

Which takes me back to my main point: "Why are you a Catholic?" is a good question.

A good question deserves a good answer. Here are 40 of mine.

Truth

Great Apologetics, I will be listening to this many times over. Very intellectually simplified, must read or listen.

Very good.

Strengthening the spirit.
With the reservation that the remarks on Buddha and Lao Tse are superficial.
The narration is perfect.

Helpful

I found this book to be clear and succinct. Helpful during troubling times to be able to articulate solid and non negotiable reasons.
Thank you Dr Kreeft

Succinct rational clarity

Dr. Kreeft has written a lot of good stuff, given a lot of good lectures, and in general been a great resource.

This book is short, but it also manages to be comprehensive.

Dr. Kreeft once had a Lighthouse Media talk, "Why Every Person in the World Ought to be a Roman Catholic". This book is like that talk except that it is more personal.

This book is a great summary of the case for Catholicism.

Great summary of the faith!

Peter Kreeft is a gem. He's a storehouse of knowledge and wisdom. He loves the Church and makes me love it more each time I listen to him.
