But it’s misleading.

There are more than 40 reasons.

In fact, there are at least ten 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 4.9% 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 readers only remember a few big ideas or separate points after reading 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 forty of mine.

From the Desk of
Dr. Peter Kreeft

The title of my new book —
Forty Reasons I am a Catholic — 
explains itself.

But it’s misleading.

There are more than 40 reasons.

In fact, there are at least ten to the
82nd power, which, I am told, is the
number of atoms in the universe.

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 readers only remember
a few big ideas after reading 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?”

This is a good question.

A good question deserves
a good answer.


Here are forty of mine.

In these delightful pages and with
characteristic flair, celebrated Catholic author
and speaker Peter Kreeft gives forty succinct
reasons why he is a Catholic.

The reasons range from the truth of its claims
to the beauty of its cathedrals (which themselves
testify to the majesty of God) and to the true presence
of Christ in the Eucharist.

Forty Reasons I am a Catholic
is a wise, informative, and fun read.

Reasons include:


Because it’s the best of five choices  
 
Because Jesus is really, truly, personally, literally present in every consecrated Host in the world
 
Because only the Church can whup the devil
 
Because I don't want to live in a one-parent supernatural family
 
Because of the unprecedented historical fact that the Church has never once lowered her standards, never changed her teaching
 
Because of cathedrals  
 
Because only the Catholic Church can save humanity
 
Because of the personality of the Church's saints
 
Because of the nouns
Because I want to believe the same things that Jesus taught and that His apostles and their successors and every single Christian in the world believed for fifteen hundred years    
 
Because I want the strongest reason to believe the Bible     
 
Because of what the Church has not taught as well as because of what she has 
 
Because of one thing that I know with certainty, that I do not need belief or faith for   
 
Because of my mother 
 
Because of the angels, and their invisible and anonymous mediation  
 
Because the Catholic Church has been infallibly right about everything she has ever claimed to be infallibly right about
