Spinoza, Secularism, and the Challenge of Evangelization
by Bishop Robert Barron . January 3, 2019 .
During this Christmas holiday, I’ve been reading Anthony Gottlieb’s breezy and enjoyable history of modern philosophy, entitled “The Dream of Enlightenment.” I found his chapter on Spinoza extremely clarifying and indeed useful as a foil for what I take to be a properly religious view of things. Answering him point by point is a good exercise for anyone who would aspire to evangelize the culture today.
Spinoza, secularismo y el reto de la evangelización
by Bishop Robert Barron . January 2, 2019 .
Durante el descanso navideño, he estado leyendo la vivaz y divertida historia de la filosofía moderna de Anthony Gottlieb, “El sueño de la Ilustración”. Encontré su capítulo sobre Spinoza extremadamente clarificador y útil como comparación para lo que yo creo es una visión propiamente religiosa de las cosas. Responderle punto por punto es un gran ejercicio para cualquiera que aspire a evangelizar la cultura hoy en día.

Bishop Barron on the Dialogue with Dr. William Lane Craig
by Bishop Robert Barron . February 15, 2018 .
Ten years ago, a seminarian friend told me that Dr. William Lane Craig, an evangelical Protestant, was by far the most effective spokesman for the Christian point of view and that he had taken on the atheists with great intelligence, wit, and panache. That night, I looked up Dr. Craig on YouTube and watched, with fascination, his debates with the superstars of the atheist movement. From that evening on I was a fan. This is why, when I was invited by the good people at the Claremont Center for Reason, Religion, and Public Affairs to participate in an all-day dialogue with William Lane Craig, I jumped at the opportunity.
