Matt Archbold is a father of five children, an author, and a columnist for several prominent Catholic publications.
His comedic and inspiring tales of raising five children in The Catholic Digest have moved many to laughter and tears while his thoughtful take on current events, pro-life and religious liberty issues at The National Catholic Register has garnered him a large and faithful readership. His own blog Creative Minority Report, whose tagline is “We laugh because we believe,” has become one of the most popular Catholic blogs.
Matt’s book “Faith Under Fire –Dramatic Stories of Christian Courage” has received wide acclaim for its portrayals of Christians facing intolerance, oppression, and even violence with expressions of love and faith.
Deacon Greg Kandra, award-winning journalist and multimedia editor of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, called Archbold’s work “Superb.” He called the book “a bright beacon of hope” which will leave readers “uplifted, inspired, consoled, and enriched.”
Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said that Archbold “highlights the urgent need for a national conversation about—and defense of—religious liberty, the bedrock of our nation.”
Danielle Bean, author, editor of Catholic Digest magazine, called Archbold “a gifted reporter and storyteller,” who makes “stories come to life” and will “light a fire in your faith!”
