Written in a style that evokes NT Wright's Simply Christian, Word on Fire is one of the leading introductions to Catholic faith and culture. Based on specific Bible readings from the Old and the New Testament, prominent author and priest Bishop Robert Barron shares enthusiastically from the riches of Christian belief and tradition. This book offers passionate evangelism for discerning readers interested in Catholicism - whether in private reflection or in group discussion.
“Robert Barron is one of today's premier Catholic spiritual writers. This book breaks open several key Scripture passages to help readers plunge more deeply into the mystery of God's presence in the Bible and in their own lives."
--James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints
“Robert Barron's reflections on the Scriptures weave vast learning, beautiful prose, and his own vivd faith into a seamless whole."
--Lawrence S. Cunningham, Univ. of Notre Dame
