Ladies and Gents I am going to boldly proclaim something to you with absolute confidence that I am right and in no danger of being told otherwise: you will love this book. Not only will you love it; you’ll treasure it, return to it often and want to give a copy of it to everyone you know, even if they are not Catholic.
I’m very serious.
Catholicism; A Journey to the Heart of the Faith is going to be released on September 6th, and you will want it on that day, and reading it will open up for you the mysterious and overwhelmingly joyous truth about Christ and His Church, in ways you never imagined.
The book is something of a companion to the ten-part Catholicism series Father Barron has been laboring on for the last three years, but it is — stand alone, all by itself — perhaps the best overview of who we are, what we believe and why we believe it, that I’ve ever read.
And I will tell you exactly why that is, tomorrow.
For today, check out Catholicism’s new trailer. And keep an eye on your local PBS schedule, several episodes of the series will soon be broadcast.
