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 in a year-long course intended for the use in the senior year of high school or freshman year of college. The curriculum consists of a two-volume textbook set and the many beautiful short-form videos you will find here.
Dr. Tim Gray explores the question Jesus asks his disciples: Who do you say that I am? He provides a close reading of St. Peter’s confession of faith that Jesus is the “Christ, the Son of the Living God” (Mt 16:16). He accentuates how Peter’s confession undermines the Roman imperial cult.
