    Why Believe? Answers to Life's Questions

    A New Curriculum forthe New Evangelization

    The New Evangelization requires a new apologetics, that is, a defense of the faith that responds to the questions that believers and non-believers alike are asking today with philosophical and theological arguments rooted in Sacred Scripture, Catholic Tradition, and the best philosophical reflection available. Why Believe? offers just such a new apologetics and in a format that appeals to our contemporary desire for beauty.

    Why Believe? is a series unlike any other. It is truly a New Apologetics for the New Evangelization!

    Today, many Catholics confront daily the implicit claim that our secular culture provides fully for human happiness. Why Believe? responds directly to that claim by a compelling argument that faith in Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God, is the only adequate answer to the human heart's desire for happiness. That argument unfolds over the 15 chapters of the textbook.

    Why should I believe what the Church teaches?

    Chapters 1-3
    Each human life is a dramatic search for happiness that requires both friendship and truth to be successful.

    Chapters 4-6
    Sustained reflection upon our common experience of the world enables us to vindicate that we can arrive at philosophical truths that are independent of the claims of modern experimental science, among which are the immortality of the soul and the existence of God as first cause or Creator of the universe.

    Chapter 7
    The stance of the relativist is self-defeating.

    Chapter 8
    The claims of materialist and reductionist versions of evolutionary theory are unconvincing.

    Chapters 9-14
    The biblical testimony to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and the Divinity of Jesus Christ, his Only-Begotten Son are convincing, as are Christ's establishment of the Most Holy Eucharist and the Church as the universal sacrament of salvation.

    Chapter 15
    Our weekly recitation of the Nicene Creed is a fitting act, both morally and intellectually.
