In Why Stay Catholic?, national best-selling author Michael Leach offers surprising, inspiring, and timely answers to this life-changing question, giving readers plenty of reasons to celebrate the Catholic faith here and now. In Part One, he explores and explains many great ideas Catholics never hear about. In Part Two, he introduces inspiring Catholics who aren’t well-known but can make a big difference in people’s faith. In Part Three, Leach highlights great Catholic organizations that shape how we see the world and more importantly, how we can make lasting changes to it.
Ultimately, Why Stay Catholic? is an invitation to “taste and see how good the Lord is.” Cradle-Catholics, returning Catholics, ex-Catholics, and even non-Catholics will love this celebration of a faith that lives and lasts.
“Why Stay Catholic? took courage to write and Michael Leach shows a masterful understanding of the meaning of Church and the mystery of God’s purpose for all of us …. A remarkable achievement!”
—Joseph Girzone, author of the Joshua series
