Reasons to Believe: How to Understand, Explain, and Defend the Catholic Faith

With the Winter selection for our reading group, we will be reading something quite different from our first book. Reasons to Believe by Scott Hahn falls in the literary genre of apologetics. Apologetics is a branch of theology that is concerned with proving the truth of Christianity, and in this case the truth of Catholicism.

Copies of this book are available in St. Patrick's Gift & Book Store. The accompanying study guide prepared for our group is also available.

Study Guide: Reasons to Believe

The optional book discussion groups for this selection are scheduled for Thursday, February 28. There will be a morning session that begins at 9:00AM and and evening session that begins at 6:00PM. The sessions usually last 1 1/2 to 2 hours--trust me, the time goes quickly. We are meeting at the church in Room 111. If you are joining us in reading these books, but have not yet attended the discussion group, I would encourage you to consider doing so. The discussions we had about The Story of a Soul were very interesting, and I think those who attended were glad they came. Don't worry! None of us are theologians.

If you use this site to print your study guide, please click on the comments button below and leave me a message to let me know that you have visited the site. I would like to know if the links work and whether or not an online site is helpful for this group. I think it could be a great tool for communication with the readers at St. Pat's.
