Overview

In his bestseller Memorize the Faith!, Kevin Vost rediscovered a memory method invented by the ancient Greeks and perfected by medieval scholars, and showed twenty-first-century Catholics how to use it to recall everything from the Ten Commandments to the Seven Deadly Sins. Now, in Memorize the Reasons!, Dr. Vost shows you how to remember information you need to explain and defend the Catholic Faith. St. Peter urges us always to be ready to give reasons for the hope that is within us (1 Pet. 3:15). But it's hard to give a good account of those reasons when we have trouble remembering the details. All too often we may vaguely remember an argument, or a Scripture passage, or a reference from the Church Fathers in support of a Catholic teaching, but when we're challenged by non-Catholics-who always seem to be able to quote chapter and verse-we stumble, and later think regretfully of what we might have said. Has that happened to you? The powerful mnemonic techniques found in Memorize the Reasons! will make sure it never happens again. In simple steps that even children can master, Dr. 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 re-filled with solid reasons for any and every Catholic belief-locked in and ready to answer any challenge. Do you want to be always prepared to explain and defend the Faith? Read Memorize the Reasons! and never again be left regretting what you might have said.
