In Reasons to Believe, Scott Hahn, a convert to Catholicism, explains the how and why of the Catholic faith - drawing from Scripture, his own struggles, and those of other converts, as well as from everyday life and even natural science. Hahn shows that reason and revelation, as well as nature and the supernatural, are not opposed to one another; rather, they offer complementary evidence that God exists. He is someone, and He has a personality, a personal style, that is discernable and knowable.

Hahn leads readers to see that God created the universe with a purpose and a form - a form that can be found in the Book of Genesis and that is there when we view the natural world through a microscope, through a telescope, or through our contact lenses.

At the heart of the book is Hahn's examination of the 10 keys to the kingdom - the characteristics of the Church clearly evident in the Scriptures. As the story of creation discloses, the world is a house that has a Father, a palace where the king is really present. God created the cosmos to be a kingdom, and that kingdom is the universal Church, fully revealed by Jesus Christ.

Listener Opinions

    " I suppose it's possible that I just misunderstood the whole thing, but this felt like a book cover with the wrong book inside. It didn't seem to have much to do with understanding, explaining, and defending the Catholic faith. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Shelby Walker | 1/8/2014

    " This book had to be written by one of Hahn's grad students. Bla Bla Bla. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 12/29/2013

    " I read this as I was going through RCIA and entering the Catholic faith in 2007. Hahn explains things in excellent detail... A good read for the new Catholic and for the life-long Catholic wanting to re-understand what he/she practices and why. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 12/12/2013

    " I like listening to Scott Hahn, but he writes similar to how he speaks, which at times can be great and others can be a little confusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 12/11/2013

    " Not good. The only thing that got me through it was some occasional historical perspectives that I hadn't heard. Someday I will find a great book about Catholicism and recommend it to everyone that asks me. This is not the one. Ugh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaime | 11/28/2013

    " I guess this book officially kicked off my apologist pursuit. I think it's a great start for any reader looking why any rational person would choose to be Catholic. Will keep this one close by, and plan to give it away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura O | 9/3/2013

    " When I was deciding whether or not to return to the Catholic Church after a short bout of being a Protestant, this book helped me make the decision to return to where God was calling me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TheRose | 5/3/2013

    " Excellent book. "Mere Christianity" for Catholics. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Schmidt | 1/18/2013

    " Very good survey of Catholic practices, beliefs, traditions and history. Not all-encompassing, (it's not meant to be) but provides many great launching points for spiritual investigation and discovery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yarrid | 10/9/2012

    " Well written book, which sums up the reasons to believe in the Catholic Faith. However, the book didn't convince me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Philip Cooper | 8/31/2012

    " While I do not agree with the Catholic theology of this author in this book, it does provide an interesting look into the mindest of those who are true believers in the Chatholic faith. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 2/26/2012

    " Wasn't really what I was looking for, but worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 1/16/2012

    " This book is not a quick read. It was too cerebral for me at this time to sit and really think about. Plus, there was a lot of philsophy in it. I might try it again later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wanda | 9/11/2011

    " Excellent! I really enjoy Scott Hahn's books. Lots of the material I had read somewhere before, but Hahn did a good job of putting all the arguments in one place in good order, as well as adding lots of tidbits I was unaware of. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 5/11/2011

    " As always, Dr. Hahn's books are informative and insightful. This wasn't my favorite of his, though. For some reason, it just didn't capture my imagination or inspire me as much as his other books or recorded talks have. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Revjkoth | 4/5/2011

    " If you would like a wonderful, easily digested, book on the relationships between the Seder and the Lord's Supper, this is it!
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gigi | 3/17/2011

    " Try to read something each Lent. This was INCREDIBLE!!!! It's a quick read with lots of references to connect the Eucharist with the Last Supper. Leaves you without a doubt in your mind! "
