Memorize the Reasons! Defending the Faith with the Catholic Art of Memory


Catholic Answers 2013

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


In Memorize the Reasons!, Kevin Vost shows you how to remember information to explain and defend the Catholic Faith. Utilizing ancient memory methods first presented in his bestseller Memorize the Faith!, Vost shows twenty-first century Catholics how to recall everything needed to give reasons for the hope that is within them. The powerful mnemonic techniques found in Memorize the Reasons! will ensure you are always ready with an argument, Scripture passage or reference to the Church Fathers in response to arguments against Catholic teaching. In simple steps that even children can master, Vost teaches you how to build “memory cathedrals” inside your mind, and to fill them with vibrant images that will instantly recall reasons for the papacy and Church authority, for Catholic beliefs about the blessed Virgin Mary, for Sacred Tradition (and against sola scriptura), and more. Best of all, this method is infinitely flexible. Your memory cathedral can be filled and refilled with solid reasons for any and every Catholic belief—locked in and ready to answer any challenge.
