Why Stay Catholic?
Dr. Scott Hahn
Why do you stay Catholic? Chances are you’re one of the millions of Catholics that have been asked this question by confused friends or family. You know, the ones who think you have a Catholic “condition” rather than a Catholic “conviction.” How you respond depends on how well you can explain why you believe what you believe.

Edited by Dr. Carol Younger, Ed.D., this book finally brings two of Dr. Hahn’s most popular talks to the printed page. In this fascinating little book, you'll discover the Catholic Truth about the Blessed Virgin Mary, the most important saint of those saved by Christ, and her role in the faith of all Christians.
