Tolkien, Chesterton, and the Adventure of Mission

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 11, 2018 .

The writings of J.R.R. Tolkien and G.K. Chesterton are often read as nostalgic celebrations of a quiet domesticity that existed before the rise of modernity and capitalism. However, I’m convinced that to see things this way is almost entirely to miss the point. For the ultimate purpose of their work is not to celebrate domesticity but rather to challenge it.

Tolkien, Chesterton y la aventura de la misión

by Bishop Robert Barron . December 10, 2018 .

Los escritos de J.R.R. Tolkien y G.K. Chesterton se lee a menudo como celebraciones nostálgicas de una apacible domesticidad que existió antes del auge de la modernidad y el capitalismo. Sin embargo, estoy convencido de que ver las cosas así nos lleva a perder de vista lo más importante. Pues el último propósito de sus obras no es el de celebrar la domesticidad sino el de desafiarla.

Stephen Hawking: Great Scientist, Lousy Theologian

by Bishop Robert Barron . November 1, 2018 .

“Is There a God?” This is the title of the first chapter of Stephen Hawking’s final book, “Brief Answers to the Big Questions.” To the surprise of no one who has been paying attention to Hawking’s musings on the subject the last several years, his answer is no. The problem is that one can be exceptionally intelligent in one arena of thought and actually quite naïve in another. This, I’m afraid, is the case with Stephen Hawking, who, though uniquely well-versed in his chosen field, makes a number of blunders when he wanders into the domains of philosophy and religion.

Stephen Hawking: Gran Científico, Terrible Teólogo

by Bishop Robert Barron . October 31, 2018 .

¿Existe Dios? Este es el título del primer capítulo del libro final de Stephen Hawking, “Breves respuestas a las grandes preguntas.” Su respuesta—que no puede sorprender a nadie que haya estado al tanto de las reflexiones de Hawking al respecto los últimos años—es que no. El problema es que uno puede ser excepcionalmente inteligente en un campo del pensamiento y bastante ingenuo en otro. Me temo que este es el caso con Stephen Hawking quien, aunque es excepcionalmente bien versado en su especialidad, mete la pata cuando se aventura en los dominios de la filosofía y la religión.
