Publisher's Summary

Is Christianity a bland, domesticated religion, unthreatening and easy to grasp? Or is it the most exotic, unexpected, and uncanny of religious paths? For the mystics and saints - and for Robert Barron, who discovered Christianity through them - it is surely the strangest way. "At its very center", writes Barron, "is a God who comes after us with a reckless abandon, breaking open his own heart in love in order to include us in the rhythm of his own life." What could be more compelling?

Catholic Faith Brilliantly explained

Bishop Barron is being for many people like me (the generation of dumb catholicism) the gentle apostle who guide us through history, literature, art, theology and the beauty of the Word to help us truly appreciate and return to the faith so we can be the hands of Jesus in this world.
