Bishop Barron on St. Paul’s Masterclass in Evangelization
by Bishop Robert Barron . August 29, 2019 .
In this new video I reflect on St. Paul’s address on the Areopagus in Athens, found in the seventeenth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles. It’s a sort of masterclass in the evangelization of the culture, and anyone engaged today in that essential task should read it with care.

Responderle punto por punto es un gran ejercicio para cualquiera que aspire a evangelizar la cultura hoy en día.
