Unbelief: Its Causes and Cures 

In this classic work praised by Pope Pius IX himself, Fr. Nicolas J. Laforet lays out the spiritual causes of unbelief, and shows the antidotes necessary to remedy each of those failings.

Noting that unbelief is not a particularly modern phenomenon (after all, many people refused to believe in Jesus even after having witnessed his miracles), Fr. Laforet uncovers the common roots of unbelief as well as the sure remedies that finally bring men and women to have faith in God.

Fr. Laforet shows that although many think otherwise, unbelief is not merely a matter of the intellect; on the contrary, where unbelief prevails we almost invariably find bad will: souls who have either not seriously considered the claims of Christianity or who simply refuse to admit truths that are evident to anyone who inquires with an open mind.

From the fruits of his spiritual and psychological analysis of the roots of unbelief, Fr. LaForet then crafts a simple but powerful remedy one that is sure to bring to Christ any reasonable person who honestly employs it.

No wonder the great Cardinal James Gibbons treasured this book, I consider its value beyond price, and highly recommend it to all, especially in these days of doubt and denial.

Among the things you will learn here are:

  • The spiritual roots of unbelief, and the main forms it takes today
  • The Attitudes that kill belief: pride, injustice, bad will, and levity of mind
  • Why Christianity could conquer the brutal Roman Empire, but suffers ever more defeats in our day
  • The one thing that always opens the gates of faith even to those who live in darkness
  • It's called Rationalism, but here Fr. Laforet shows it's not rational at all
  • True faith: why it isn't blind and can never be
  • If you can't make yourself believe, why does the Church consider unbelief a vice? Get the answer here
  • Faith and reason: learn how Christian faith purifies reason, strengthens it, extends it, and even elevates it
  • Discover the two forms of materialism practical and dogmatic and how each corrodes faith

 

Answering Atheism 

Today’s popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don’t just deny God’s existence (as the old atheists did)—they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there’s nothing really “new” about their arguments. They’re the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries.

We don’t need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: we need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.

Read Answering Atheism and become thoroughly equipped to rebut atheists’ challenges—and to share with them the good news that God is real.

 

Answering Atheism gets high grades on the three R's: It is readable, reasonable, and researched. Its defense of the cosmological argument has depth and detail, yet it is not so technical that you need to take a philosophy course to comprehend it.”
–Peter Kreeft, Renowned Author and Speaker; Professor of Philosophy, Boston College

“If you read only one book that that shows the reasonableness and beauty of belief in God, it should be Trent Horn’s Answering Atheism.
–Kevin Vost, author, Memorize the Reasons!
