Description

Author: Robert Barron
Binding: Hardcover

This companion book complements the DVD series and study program.

The book is based on the scripts for the series, but delves more deeply into the content, including over 100 photos of the art used in the documentary. In this book Father Barron seeks to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith. Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ's incarnation, life, and teaching, Father Barron moves through the defining elements of Catholicism-from sacraments, worship, and prayer, to Mary, the Apostles, and Saints, to grace, salvation, heaven, and hell-using his distinct and dynamic grasp of art, literature, architecture, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy, and history to present the Church to the world.

Robert Barron is professor of systematic theology at the University of St. Mary of the Lake, Mundelein, Illinois. Fr. Barron was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Chicago in 1986, has a masters degree in philosophy from the Catholic University of America and a doctorate in sacred theology from the Institut Catholique in Paris. He is the author of many articles and popular books, including Thomas Aquinas: Spiritual Master; And Now I See: A Theology of Transformation; and The Strangest Way. Fr. Barron gives frequent talks, retreats and workshops on issues of theology and spirituality across the country and hosts the radio program Words on Fire.
