“In a time of crisis, when so many young people have abandoned the Church, Brandon Vogt stands out among his generation as one who boldly affirms the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Catholic faith.” -Bishop Robert Barron

“I wish I’d read this book back when I was an atheist–I would have become Catholic much sooner! Brandon Vogt makes clear, reasonable arguments that will resonate with people from any faith background.” -Jennifer Fulwiler, Catholic radio host

“You will come to see the Bible in a whole new light, and find yourself reading it — with greater wisdom and insight — for the rest of your life.” -Scott Hahn

“For ordinary Catholics, taking a journey through the Bible just got a whole lot easier. With this book, Walking with God, Tim Gray and Jeff Cavins make it so that you are starting out on the trip with a good map and compass, along with a couple of great friends as reliable guides. You don’t want to miss out on such a great adventure.” -Scott Hahn

“For decades non-Catholics and even some perplexed Catholics have questioned a number of the beliefs and especially the devotional acts of the Catholic Church. Scott Hahn addresses these questions in Signs of Life, producing crystal-clear explanations of the Church’s traditional practices. His own background as a convert makes him the perfect person to write this book.” – Father Benedict Groeschel

“The Catholic Hipster Handbook is an alt-culture journey into the mysticism, joy, and general weirdness of some new, and some too-often-forgotten and unconventional Catholic practices of faith.” – Jeannie Gaffigan, Comedienne, actress, and writer

“Funny, informative, intriguing, creative and surprising… all the things you expect a hipster book to be.” – Allison Gingras, Reconciled to You

“Bishop Robert Barron is truly a shepherd after God’s own heart, proclaiming the truth and beauty of the Catholic faith, and leading souls to the knowledge and love of Christ. He makes Scripture come alive. He calls attention to the seeds of the Word that surround us in creation and culture. And he answers the contemporary challenges of secularism and the new atheism with clarity and charity. John Allen has provided a privileged glimpse into the mind and heart of a true master of evangelization.” – Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper

“Probably the greatest spiritual writing of the 20th century and still a compelling story, and a book that you’d stay up at night reading.” – Bishop Robert Barron

“Twentieth-century form of the Confessions of St. Augustine.” – the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen

“This book will prove to be a most effective weapon… against the debunking and skeptical attitudes toward the Gospels that are so prevalent, not only in academe, but also on the street, among young people who, sadly, are leaving the Churches in droves.” – Bishop Robert Barron

“Stark writes as an historian, not an apologist; but the truth is not only good history, but also the best defense of the Church.” – Gerald J. Russello, National Catholic Register

“If you’ve ever wanted to share one of Bishop Robert Barron’s fantastic meditations on Christianity but can’t quite remember where he said it (or how he said it!), then look no further. This book is for you. Vibrant Paradoxes is a cornucopia of wisdom, overflowing with insights into sin and mercy, reason and faith, matter and spirit, suffering and joy.” – Dr. Brant Pitre

“Trent expertly identifies and analyzes the counterfeit claims about Christ and refutes the myths and misrepresentations with logic and historical fact. This book should be required reading for catechists, schoolteachers, parents, and Catholics of all stripes. I highly recommend this excellent work!” – Steve Weidenkopf, Author, The Real Story of Catholic History

“Bishop Barron is an exceptional evangelizer and one of the best at finding connections between twenty-first century culture and the timeless teachings of Catholicism.” – Cardinal Timothy Dolan

“A flagship volume for contemporary apologetics. This book should be required reading for every Catholic college student and especially for every priest, seminarian, and deacon. This is apologetics made fascinating.” – Father Benedict Groeschel

“Chesterton was a genius in that the knew things he had not learned and learned things the rest of us miss. But how in the world he knew enough about Thomas Aquinas to write this remarkable little book is still something of a mystery – or perhaps only a proof of his genius.” – Dr. Ralph McInerny
