After his conversion to the Catholic Faith, Trent Horn earned a master’s degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville and is currently pursuing a graduate degree in philosophy from Holy Apostles College.
He serves as a staff apologist for Catholic Answers and specializes in teaching Catholics to graciously and persuasively engage those who disagree with them. Trent models that approach each week on the radio program Catholic Answers Live where he dialogues with atheists, pro-choice advocates, and other non-Catholic callers.
Trent is also a lecturer who travels throughout the world speaking on subjects related to the Catholic faith. In addition to being a public speaker, Trent is the author of four books: Answering Atheism, Persuasive Pro-life, Hard Sayings: A Catholic Approach to Answering Bible Difficulties, and his latest book, Why We’re Catholic.
-Answering Atheism: Trent not only answers the most common arguments for atheism, he presents a powerful case for the existence of God.
-Counterfeit Christs (Formerly “Jesus: Lord or Legend?”): Trent shows how atheists, members of other religions, and even some Christians are mistaken about the person of Christ and then uses Scripture and history to reveal who Jesus really is.
-Persuasive Pro-life: Ever get tongue-tied trying to explain why you’re pro-life? Trent presents the non-religious reasons to oppose abortion and then equips pro-life advocates to graciously make their case in the public square.
-Why We’re Catholic (formerly “Why Be Catholic?”): Trent shares his conversion story and explains how the grace of God guided him through the biblical and historical evidence and led him to faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he founded.
-Hard Sayings: How to Answer Bible Difficulties: Does Genesis contradict biology? How do we know the Bible is historically reliable? What about the “immoral” Bible verses atheists love to bring up? Trent provides sound principles for understanding Scripture the next you encounter a Bible difficulty.
-Love that Makes Sense (Formerly “How to Talk About Marriage and Same-Sex Unions” and “How to Talk About Tough Moral Issues”): Have you heard of LGBTQ+? Trent explains how our culture has rejected God’s plan for marriage and sexuality and why his plan alone makes sense to our minds and brings peace to our hearts.
-The Beginner’s Guide to Defending Your Faith: Trent shows you that you don’t need all the right answers—you just need the right questions (and the right attitude) to share the Catholic faith with anyone.
-No More “Mr. Nice Guys”: In this version of his popular talk “The Beginner’s Guide to Defending Your Faith,” Trent rallies men to use the masculine gifts God gave them in order to defend their families and their Faith.
-Why Catholics Can’t Be Socialists: Trent looks at the history of socialism, explains its fundamental flaws, and shows why Pope Pius XI said, “No one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist.”
-Refuting Relativism: “That’s true for you, but not for me!” Trent teaches you how to refute relativist slogans and provide compelling evidence for the objective truth of the Catholic faith.
-Debate: Trent is available to debate a number of topics related to the Catholic faith. Past topics he has debated include “Should abortion remain legal?”, “Does God exist?”, and “Did Jesus exist?”
-Ask Me Anything!: Trent’s favorite part of his talks is the question-and-answer session, so why not include an extra-long “Apologist Q&A” for your next event?
