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 and the co-host of Hearts and Minds, a weekly radio program that discusses timely issues from an eternal perspective. In addition to being a public speaker, Trent is the author of three books: Answering Atheism, Persuasive Pro-life, and his latest book Hard Sayings: A Catholic Approach to Answering Bible Difficulties.

Made for Love: Understanding Sexual Ethics
Trent answers our culture’s view of “almost anything goes” sexuality with a secular defense of the Church’s teachings. You’ll learn how to connect with a culture that longs for genuine love and to show why Catholic teaching on sexuality just makes sense. Topics covered include pornography, sex outside of marriage, divorce, and contraception.
The Case for Life Ever get tongue-tied trying to explain why you’re pro-life? Trent presents the scientific and philosophical reasons to oppose abortion and equips pro-life advocates to make their case in the public square. He also teaches pro-life advocates to be ambassadors who graciously make their case and always, in the words of St. Paul, “speak the truth in love.”
Answering Atheism Trent explains how modern physics and philosophy demonstrate the existence of a personal God. He includes the story of how a Catholic priest proved Einstein wrong and showed that faith and reason aren’t enemies but allies in the search for truth. With ample time for Q&A, this is a seminar for anyone who wants to, in the words of St. Peter, “Always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who calls you to account for the hope that is in you.”
“Trent Horn is a gifted Catholic apologist as well as a compelling speaker. He presents Catholicism in an intelligent, careful, and winsome manner, providing to his listeners a model of how an ambassador of the Church ought to offer an account of our Faith in public.”
— Francis J. Beckwith, professor of philosophy and Church-state studies, Baylor University
“Trent Horn has the ability not only to defend the Faith but even more to present the beauty of the Faith in convincing ways. While he is fully capable of producing sound bites that catch the attention of both youths and adults, his best work explains tough truths in logical and illuminating ways.”
— Most Rev. Thomas J. Olmsted, Bishop of the Diocese of Phoenix
“After you concluded your talk, I summoned the courage to ask my non-Catholic friend for their thoughts on your speech. My friend was deeply impressed with your charisma and how you handled yourself and presented your material. Your God-inspired words left my friend's heart open to wanting to know more about our faith!”
— A Midwest College Student
