Website Review: Reasonable Catholic

A review based on:


Matt Nelson is an excellent writer and speaker specializing in Catholic apologetics and evangelization. He covers a variety of topics in a clear and concise way.

The topics on his website are interesting and challenging. The article, Where Is God? The Problem of Divine Hiddenness, gives an example of his style:

If God exists, where is he?

Moreover if God is all-loving and all-powerful why hasn’t he shown himself to the world? He’s all loving: why would he leave any room for doubt? He’s all-powerful: why not reveal himself in the most spectacular of ways that would make unbelief impossible?

I’ll start by admitting that the argument from the hiddenness of God is a reasonable objection; and I’ll also admit that there are days when I wonder to myself in exasperation, “God where are you?” I think it’s a fair question, but just because a question is fair does not mean it’s irrefutable. Good questions often have good answers; and I think this particular question of God’s hiddenness has, in return, some reasonable answers."

Anyone seeking to have a better understanding of the Catholic Faith will find this website well worth visiting.
