    A revitalizing perspective of faith with clarity and reason

    I received this book through a series of synchronicities while I was having a serious crisis of faith. That made me see that perhaps it was being sent to me, when I was ready and willing to see it. A few weeks later, I ended up meeting Father Barron through another coincidence. After speaking to him and reading this book, I have finally come to appreciate the "genius" of my faith, which is a choice of lifestyle, a way of living in gratitude to the inscrutable and unknowable IT that made all of this. I believe that all things happen for a reason, and this book and meeting Father Bob made me realize how true that statement is. Despite the failings and weaknesses of the biggest Christian "organization" in the world, this book and the series that goes along with it, will bring about a renaissance of faith for many Christians, not only Catholics, and I think it is much needed now. He has started a revolution of epic proportion with his intellect and eloquence, and it is a book I will treasure, re-read and share. Not to be missed by anyone questioning their faith or wanting to gain deeper understanding and knowledge. The mystery of life and faith will remain so for those of us still here, but this text with is thought provoking and faith restoring. If it worked for me, it is powerful enough to make a difference to others.

    Based off his new series, Fr Robert Barron's new book Catholicis

    Based off his new series, Fr Robert Barron's new book Catholicism is very comprehensive and informative.

    Chapters include:
    The Revelation of God become Man
    The Teachings of Jesus
    The Ineffable Mystery of God
    Mary, the Mother of God
    Peter, Paul, and the Missionary Adventures
    The Mystical Union of Christ and the Church
    The Mystery of the Church's Sacrements and Worship
    The Communion of Saints
    Prayer and the Life of the Spirit
    Last Things


    He has such a way with words that really brings things to life.  I love this line "Catholicism is a matter of the body and senses as much as it is a matter of the mind and soul, precisely because the Word became flesh."
    I love when he talks about a painting in pointillism style and compares God to the artist.  When viewed up close (by us) it just looks like a bunch of dots and doesn't make sense.  But when you see it from Gods view, the entire painting (His plans) becomes clear.  Fr Barron has such a great way of describing things.
    It's a great book on Catholicism.  I recommend it for anyone that wants to learn more about the beautiful faith.

    Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
