Celebrating the remarkable legacy of the prolific Peter Kreeft
“Peter Kreeft is one of the most prolific, respected, and influential Catholic writers of the last fifty years. He is the author of nearly a hundred books (he doesn’t keep count, but says it’s somewhere around there), more than forty of which have been published by Ignatius Press—with more coming along all the time.
He has written books on Catholic apologetics and pro-life philosophy, refuting relativism and teaching prayer, surfing and Scripture, holiness and heaven, angels and demons, the history of philosophy, Aquinas and Augustine, Socratic dialogues, imaginative conversations between monumental figures of the 20th century, and more. His oeuvre in its entirety could provide one with a foundation and working knowledge of the complexities of philosophy, as well as the teachings of the Catholic Church. If one were to read nothing but Peter Kreeft, he would be strengthened in the faith and ready to preach it and defend it.
A new volume entitled Wisdom and Wonder: How Peter Kreeft Shaped the Next Generation of Catholics (Ignatius Press, 2021) chronicles the tremendous influence Kreeft has played in teaching a new generation of Catholics about their faith. It features contributions by Brandon Vogt, Trent Horn, Tyler Blanski, Jackie Angel, Matthew Warner, Douglas Beaumont, and several more. These contributions are not hagiographical; rather, they explain and present the impact Kreeft has had on these younger Catholic writers, teachers, and preachers.
Brandon Vogt, Content Director at Word on Fire, served as editor of the book. Vogt recently corresponded with Catholic World Report about the book and Kreeft’s influence.
