Throughout the world, Atheism is on the rise and an increasing number of people now identify themselves as having no religious affiliation (“nones”). In such a world where disbelief is gaining traction, why should anyone consider the Catholic Church? Best-selling author Brandon Vogt offers some unique insights gleaned from his own conversion experience as well as his ongoing dialogue with atheists.
While discussing Vogt’s latest book, Why I Am Catholic (And You Should Be Too), Michael and Brandon reflect on their own paths to Catholicism and the many reasons everyone should consider the Catholic faith. From beauty to the grace of confession, we cover a lot of ground and dive into the big questions about life and faith in today’s episode.
