About the Author


Brandon Vogt is a bestselling and award-winning author, blogger, and speaker who serves as content director for Bishop Robert Barron’s Word on Fire Catholic Ministries.

Vogt was one of the millennial “nones” when it came to religion until, as a mechanical engineering student at Florida State University, he began a passionate search for truth. That search led him unexpectedly to the Catholic Church in 2008. In 2013, he started StrangeNotions.com, the largest site of dialogue between Catholics and atheists.

Vogt was named one of the “Top 30 Catholics under 30” by FOCUS as well as one of the “Top 30 Catholics to Follow on Twitter.” He is the author of seven books, including RETURN: How to Draw Your Child Back to the Church and The Church and New Media. His work has been featured by media outlets including NPR, Fox News, CBS, EWTN, Vatican Radio, Our Sunday Visitor, National Review, and Christianity Today. He is a regular guest on Catholic radio and speaks to a variety of audiences about evangelization, new media, Catholic social teaching, and spirituality.
