Product Description

Review

“Clarity, intelligence, passion and elegance – these are the marks of a writer in top form, and Father Barron brings all these gifts to bear in this extraordinary reflection on the Catholic faith. If you read one book this year on what Catholics believe and why, this is the book to read – and to share with others.” –Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap, Archbishop of Philadelphia

“Father Robert Barron’s Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith takes a path less traveled in leading us to explore the faith through stories, biographies, and images. In these pages, we meet the “Word made Flesh” not only in theological formulations, but also in saints and poets, cathedrals and chants, priests and prophets. What makes Catholicism so compelling are the ways in which Father Barron shows how the Incarnation goes on in the true, the good, and the beautiful.” – Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York
 
Catholicism is one of the most significant efforts ever to advance what Pope John Paul II called ‘The New Evangelization.’” –George Weigel, author of Witness to Hope and The End and the Beginning
 
“Prepare yourself for an entrancing tour of the many facets of Catholicism.  From Her art to Her architecture, Her theological riches, to the inspired personalities that have filled Her pews, the Catholic Church is laid bare by a priest who is more than up to the task. Like the Faith it seeks to capture, it is a journey that will leave you full – and then hungering for more.” –Raymond Arroyo, New York Times Bestselling Author of Mother Angelica and host of EWTN's The World Over Live
 
“Father Robert Barron is a brilliant academic, a popular writer, a seeker and a seer. In Catholicism he illuminates truths that have the power to set us free. It will be a benchmark book for years to come.” –Michael Leach, author of Why Stay Catholic?
 
“When Father Barron is talking, I can't stop listening. Whatever he writes, I can't put down unfinished. He loves the people he addresses. He writes about what matters to us. To read him is to be loved in word after word. In these pages, heart speaks to heart.” –Mike Aquilina, co-author of The Mass: The Glory, the Mystery, the Tradition

“Father Robert Barron’s great gift is to wed intellectual depth with clarity and vividness of expression. His Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith is a superb exploration of the Catholic vision that seamlessly unites theological reflection and masterpieces of architecture and art. The story he tells comes truly alive in his portraits of concrete men and women who, in every age, have lived the journey of faith to the full. –”Rev. Robert Imbelli is Associate Professor of Theology at Boston College

About the Author

Father Robert Barron is the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, the Rector of Mundelein Seminary,  and the host of CATHOLICISM, a groundbreaking, award winning documentary about the Catholic Faith. He received a Master's Degree in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America (1982) and a doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Institut Catholique de Paris (1992).

He has published numerous books, essays, and articles on theology and the spiritual life. He has also appeared on several media outlets including NBC, PBS, FOX News, CNN, and EWTN. His website, WordOnFire.org, has reached over 3.8 million people and his weekly YouTube videos have been viewed over nine million times. His pioneering work in evangelizing through the new media led Cardinal Francis George, Archbishop of Chicago, to describe him as “one of the Church's best messengers."

I recently went through the Catholic Church's RCIA program and converted to Catholicism.

The written materials provided by the Church to RCIA candidates are useful but they're pretty basic. Anyone wanting to explore the RCIA lessons in greater depth, as I did, will find a daunting volume of material available in print and online.

I read a number of books on Catholicism during my time in RCIA and this book by Father Robert Barron was one of the best introductory books on Catholicism that I found. It's a great introduction to the faith but it's also a book that one can keep coming back to for further reference.

It goes into detail about many of the essential topics that get covered, but in far less detail, in the RCIA classes, including the Trinity, Mary, St. Peter and St. Paul and the early Church, the relationship of Christ and the Church, the Eucharist, the Mass and a variety of other core concepts.

Father Barron writes well and presents Catholicism's key ideas and concepts in a clear, readily understandable manner that should be useful to those who are new to Catholicism as well as those who want to explore the faith in greater depth.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Catholicism.

For a number of years I have been teaching RCIA, Catholic Bible studies, the History of the Catholic Church and other courses based on those wonderful Didache Series books published by Midwest Theological forum. And while they were excellent, they lacked that personal touch which Father Robert Barron introduces through his new video series. I love the videos, but as a teacher I need more background to provide context for my students before they view the videos. The Catholicism book is an invaluable companion guide to the video series and I highly recommend it.

Even if you never watch the videos, the book is a stand alone which provides fresh insights into this extraordinary Church of ours. What amazes me is the way God brings in new perspectives through different people over the years. Of course we all long for unity amongst Christians, and perhaps the insights provided by Father Robert will help move us all toward a new way of looking at the endless story of God made manifest in the world. An approach which will help us to understand that we are all brothers and sisters in the faith.

Many blessings,

Peter Gardner

Robert Barron always makes what can be a difficult subject very readable and understandable. His insights are clear to even the novice explorer of the Catholic faith. Highly recommended.

Fr. Barron's presentation lively and interesting. Book follows companion DVD lessons of the Faith and History of the Catholic Church - best I've ever facilitated for a group. Additional study materials easy to use. Participants were enthusiastic and talked to their friends. Group doubled in numbers during weeks of presenting. Never had that happen before. Thanks Father (and Peggy for the training sessions)

This book is a wonderful companion to the DVD Series. Together with the DVD Series, it shows the Catholic Faith through The Bible, through History, through Art, through The Virgin Mary, through The Saints.
I have seen the beauty of my faith like I've never seen it before. Watching the DVDs make me feel like I am actually there.
It has definately strenghtened my faith.
