Ever since he converted to Catholicism at the age of seventeen, Trent Horn has had a passion for explaining and defending the Faith. After earning a degree in history from Arizona State University, Trent traveled the country training pro-life advocates on college campuses to engage opponents in compassionate and persuasive dialogue. After completing a master’s degree in theology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, Trent served as the Respect Life Coordinator for the Diocese of Phoenix. He is a dynamic and experienced public speaker who has made more than 200 presentations, from high school assemblies to keynote conference talks. He is a regular guest on Catholic Answers Live and is the author of Answering Atheism: How to Make the Case for God with Logic and Charity published by Catholic Answers Press.
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.”
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
