Subscribe to Catholic Answers Magazine

We began with Catholic Answers newsletter in 1986, then graduated to This Rock magazine in 1990.  In 2011 This Rock magazine was reborn as Catholic Answers Magazine.

Its mission continues to be the one for which it was created: to explain and defend the tenets of the Catholic faith and present practical ways to spread God’s truth. It does so using unfailingly orthodox defenses of the Church’s beliefs and always in a spirit of charity. Through our magazine, Catholic Answers cleaves to Peter’s exhortation to apologists: “Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence” (1 Pet. 3:15).

In an age of secularism, disbelief, and internal dissent, Catholic apologetics has become a beacon casting light on the Church’s truths. One need only turn to this web site and others on the Internet to see the growing interest in, and the necessity for, defending the faith. 

This country needs thousands more well educated, active Catholics to spread and defend the faith. Catholic Answers Magazine is a key means of training them for those critically important missions.

The 48-page magazine is published six times a year. In addition to its paid subscribers, about 2,500 copies of each issue are sent free to all bishops in the United States, to seminarians, to foreign missionaries, and to Catholics in prison.

Catholic Answers Magazine’s pages include the writing of such leading Catholic thinkers as Fr. Brian Harrison, Helen Hull Hitchcock, Fr. Mitch Pacwa, Scott Hahn, K. D. Whitehead, Mark Shea, Alice von Hildebrand, and, of course, Catholic Answers’ Director of Apologetics and Evangelization, Tim Staples, and its president and founder, Karl Keating.
