It is informative without being preachy. It is apologetical where it needs to be, yet never prostrating. The show presents exactly as it is. And you get what you expect. Or perhaps more than one would expect because the production values are very high. (On that note maybe few too many heavily vignetted artsy shots, so this will not age as well as one might like) A worthwhile watch for catholic and protestant alike. I really enjoyed it and felt I got good value for the price. So good in fact that I am watching it for a second time around because I missed a bunch of points and it is so well done.
Wherever you are, this video series by Father Robert Barron is sure to move you to a new level of understanding and insight into how God parachuted in behind enemy lines as a tiny little baby in a forgotten corner of the most advanced civilization in human history up to that time. Yes God has a sense of humour and no he is not worried about the intellectuals who have pretended for so long that God never existed and that Jesus was just a nice ordinary man with some insights into ethics and morality.
Quite apart from the beautiful scenery in the Holy Land, and the visual impact of art and beauty through the ages, it is the message that Father Robert brings which is delightful. So many young people today think of the Church as some sort of leftover anachronism which will soon shrivel up and die. But Father Robert is able to turn this sort of thinking on its head and show how relevant the teachings of the Church have been to our understanding of this world as well as providing us with a guide to the next. God is not dead, he did not just appear once and then disappear from the scene. He is hard at work through the Church providing us with everything we need to make the right choices.
The messages in these videos are not for the faint of heart, they force you to really think through your point of view.Read more ›
Hopefully we will continue to benefit from his knowledge and spiritual energy.
