Archbishop Robert Barron
A Journey to the Heart of the Faith
What is Catholicism? A 3,000-year-old living tradition? Aworldview? Away of life? A relationship? A mystery? In Catholicism, Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, bringing the mysteries of the faith to life for a new generation.
Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ’s Incarnation, life, and teachings, 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.
Paired with his documentary film series of the same name, Catholicism is a one-of-a-kind, global, and intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty. Eclectic, unique, and inspiring, Father Barron seeks to celebrate the body, heart, and mind of the Catholic faith in a style that is both faithful to timeless truth while speaking in the language of contemporary life.
“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
