A 2016 study by the Public Religion Research Institute found that 25% of adults describe themselves as unaffiliated with any religion. Millions of these so-called "nones" have fled organized religion and many more have rejected God altogether. Brandon Vogt was one of those nones. When he converted to Catholicism in college, he knew how confusing that decision was to many of his friends and family. But he also knew that the evidence he discovered pointed to one conclusion: Catholicism is true. His persuasive case for the faith reveals a vision of Catholicism that has answers our world desperately needs and reminds those already in the Church what they love about it.

"In a time of crisis, when so many young people have abandoned the Church, Brandon Vogt stands out among his generation as one who boldly affirms the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Catholic faith. As this book demonstrates, he is bright, articulate, kind, and passionate. He's one of the radiant lights of the New Evangelization." --Most Rev. Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles

"For years, I've longed for a book that I could recommend to parents whose children have left the Church or to people who have lost their faith. This is that book. Brandon Vogt makes the case for Catholicism with remarkable clarity and charity. Along the way, he handles common objections to Catholicism with answers that touch both mind and heart. If you know someone struggling with belief--or if you yourself have questions or doubts--then do yourself a favor: buy this book, read it, and then share it with others." --Brant Pitre, Catholic theologian, speaker, and author of The Case for Jesus

"I wish I'd read this book back when I was an atheist--I would have become Catholic much sooner! Brandon Vogt makes clear, reasonable arguments that will resonate with people from any faith background." --Jennifer Fulwiler, Catholic radio host and author of Something Other Than God

"Like all of Brandon Vogt's writing, his compelling new book is accessible, inviting, practical, inspirational, and, in the deepest sense, true." --Rev. James Martin, S.J., Author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything

"Brandon Vogt's Why I Am Catholic (and You Should Be Too) lives up to its cheeky title. It is clear, direct, simple yet not simplistic, and is ideal for 'nones' who wonder why any intelligent adult would choose the most counter-cultural religion in the world. Here is a friendly explanation from a live fish who is swimming happily upstream to the many fish who are passing him in the other direction." --Peter Kreeft, Catholic author and philosophy professor at Boston College

"Drawing on some of the most fascinating philosophical, historical, and scientific evidence available today, Vogt makes a comprehensive case for the Catholic faith. Anyone who takes the arguments in this book seriously is sure to feel a tug towards the Catholic Church. Here's a work of apologetics that will shock modern folks out of their religious indifference and into the light of reasonable faith." --Matt Nelson, Author and blogger at ReasonableCatholic.com
"Brandon Vogt is such a gift to the Church. Why I Am Catholic lays out the case for the God who is truth, goodness, and beauty in plain English that is honest as the daylight. A lovely, winsome book from one of the best human beings I have ever had the honor to know. He is a breathtaking messenger full of astonishing joy, saying simply, 'Come and see!'" --Mark P. Shea, Author of By What Authority: An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition

"Brandon is in touch with where the culture is at today. He knows the questions that people are asking and how those questions lead them to become Catholic. With an effective mixture of personal testimony and clear reasoning--in a very readable style--he makes a compelling case for why everyone should make the same choice he did. Excellent work!" --Ralph Martin, Director of Graduate Theology Programs in the New Evangelization, Sacred Heart Major Seminary

"The root of the word enthusiasm means 'God is within.' Brandon Vogt is not only enthusiastic but also smart. He contends that in a secular, hedonistic world Catholicism is the tried and true way to be subversive. It is subversive because it upholds eternal truth, beauty, and goodness. Whether you're a skeptic, a seeker, or even a former Catholic, pick up this book and find a refreshing case for the Catholic faith." --Rev. Dwight Longenecker, Catholic apologist and author of The Path to Rome

"As I read this book I kept thinking, 'I'm reading a modern-day Frank Sheed!' Brandon has achieved the 'creative apologetic' that Pope Francis called for in Evangelii Gaudium. He not only plays the chord of truth for Catholicism but he plays the harmonizing chords of goodness and beauty with a clarity and a precision that can do nothing but move the mind and the heart." --Karlo Broussard, Author and apologist at Catholic Answers

"Brandon Vogt has written an insightful case for the Catholic faith. His treatment on how beauty confirms the truth of Catholicism is one of the best I've ever read." --Trent Horn, Apologist at Catholic Answers and author of Answering Atheism

"Brandon Vogt is one of my spiritual mentors, role models, and prayer warriors. I love Why I Am Catholic, in which Brandon provides guidance to a world in need of compassion and reason. Whether you're a skeptic, a seeker, or simply a soul in need of spiritual renewal, Brandon is your companion for a fulfilling relationship with God and his Church." --Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of CatholicMom.com and author of The Grace of Yes
