“I greatly appreciate the work that Matt Nelson is doing to explain the faith and proclaim the Gospel.” —His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto
“Matt Nelson gives flesh and blood to the words of I Peter 3:15: “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect… .” I have had the privilege and pleasure of knowing Matt and witnessing his faith, goodness, conviction, sincerity and zeal. I support his work of evangelizing and faith sharing.” Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, English language media attaché of the Holy See Press Office & CEO of Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation
Matt Nelson employs his own brand of Canadian brio to explode the myth that the Catholic Faith is unreasonable. In a media culture prone to hysterics and hyperbole, Matt’s approach (in print and in person) works so well because he makes all the right distinctions between what the mind can know and what God has revealed. Highly recommended, eh. —Patrick Coffin, host of The Patrick Coffin Show, former host of Catholic Answers Live, author of Sex Au Naturel, and film producer at Immaculata Pictures.
“Thoughtful, insightful, interesting, and always charitable, Matt Nelson makes a great contribution to the New Evangelization. He tackles important topics, and does so with both clarity and depth, while also encouraging the reader to follow up and learn more. This is what popular-level apologetics should look like – may his tribe increase!” —Dr Holly Ordway, author of Not God’s Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms
“St. John Paul II famously said that faith and reason are like two wings that ascend to truth. Most Catholics get that first part right–we have strong faith and devotion. But we need the second part, too. Matt Nelson can help. He is one of the best young apologists in the Church today, an expert at showing how the Catholic Church isn’t just beautiful and good–it’s also true. Smart, clear, and passionate, he’s everything the New Evangelization calls for.” —Brandon Vogt, Content Director at Word on Fire Catholic Ministries
