    Fr. Robert Barron's comprehensive work goes straight to the core of the Catholic faith. He first examines the foundations of Christ's incarnation, life and ministry, and then works through the essentials of the Catholic tradition: from sacraments, worship and prayer, to Mary and the saints, and on to salvation, heaven and hell. Throughout this epic journey, Fr. Barron uses art, literature, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy and history to present a complete picture of the Church to the world.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is the text of the PBS DVD series by the same title, which was filmed around the world at the various locations mentioned in this book. I highly recommend both. Both his narration and the content in this book are excellent. Fr. Robert Barron's insights and obvious gifts as a teacher come through to create an excellent summary that is bound to inspire Catholics and non-Catholics alike, and in the end provide a more accurate and truer idea of what it is to be Catholic, and what the Catholic faith actually is. He communicates concepts that can be difficult to understand and does this by using all manner of tools. His explanation is perfect for our generation, being both modern in its insights but true to the traditions and teachings of the faith. His presentation is articulate, inspired and authentic. It is not simply history, nor catechesis, nor scripture, nor tradition, but the totality of human expression and experience that he blends with such dexterity so as to paint a picture, in the end, of our Faith. He acknowledges there have been mistakes and sin committed by those within the Church at times, which do not make the teachings of Christ, nor His claims about His identity, any less true, and confirms that since Jesus' ministry, He has surrounded himself with sinners, who strive to become more like Him. God has worked and continues to work with imperfect human beings to ultimately bring about His plan. I listened, and re-listened to portions of this, took notes and find still that it speaks to the heart of the greatness of God, and His radical and persistent attempts to reveal Himself to us. Highly recommended.
