Aquinas and More. Good Faith. Guaranteed.

Catholicism - A Tiber River Review

by Ian on June 2, 2012

Catholicism

First, and to the point: Catholicism excellent book, the new standard to give to the seeker, the RCIA participant, the college student, the non-Catholic spouse, the skeptical friend, even the lost Catholic. It is slender and readable, accessible, creative, and thorough.  It is the fruit of both an accomplished scholar and a popular writer. I highly recommend it.

Barron’s book invites us to see the forest of Catholic faith rather than the individual trees, so to speak.  His approach is deeply sacramental, by which I mean not only his interest in the fact that Catholics celebrate sacraments, but also his ability to use discreet images and examples as windows  into the mystery of Catholic faith.
