Chivalry and the Manly Art of Grace
Roman Catholic Speaker, Author, Husband, Father and Host of Shield of Faith on Radio Maria
Without a doubt, Matthew Arnold is the “best kept secret” in Catholic evangelization and apologetics today. A former Hollywood insider and convert from “New-Age,” Matthew is a gifted international speaker who’s “no nonsense” approach to Catholicism has inspired and informed audiences on four continents for nearly twenty years.
Matthew has produced dozens of popular Catholic audio and video presentations including Our Catholic Faith and Fire & Sword: The Crusades. He has appeared often on EWTN Radio where he co-hosted Scripture Matters LIVE with Dr. Scott Hahn. His enlightening programs, What Every Catholic Needs to Know About the Bible and What Every Catholic Needs to Know About Hell, continue to air on EWTN-TV. Matthew’s popular CDs, DVDs and brochures on the Catholic Faith are currently available in over six thousand parishes around the United States through Lighthouse Catholic Media where he enjoys the distinction of having the most CD titles in their catalogue (after Scott Hahn!).
Whether he's speaking at a Cathedral Church or a major Catholic Conference, leading a retreat for the folks at a humble small-town parish, or addressing a meeting of Catholic professionals, Matthew Arnold brings the same energy, passion, and humor to every enlightening and entertaining presentation.
Matthew holds a Certificate of Lay Ecclesial Ministry for the Diocese of Orange, a Certificate in Christian Counselling, and was a founding member of the Society for Christian Psychology. He currently resides in Southern California with his wife Betty and six children.
