Amazed & Afraid: The Revelation of God Become Man
Journey with Bishop Robert Barron to more than 50 locations throughout 16 countries. Be illuminated by the spiritual and artistic treasures of this global culture that claims more than one billion of the earth's people.
Bishop Robert Barron created this groundbreaking program as a thematic presentation of what Catholics believe and why, so all adults can come to a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith. Not a video lecture, Church history or Scripture study, this engaging and interesting formational program uses the art, architecture, literature, music and all the treasures of the Catholic tradition to illuminate the timeless teachings of the Church.
The video-based study program can be experienced individually or in a group. Groups meet for either 11 90-minute sessions or 21 2 1/2 hour sessions to explore what the Church believes and why. Each session includes video viewing and small group discussion of the Study Guide questions. Participants read the commentary in the Study Guide and prepare the questions before the small group discussion. This preparation can be done either before or after they view the video, as the Commentary in each lesson is very detailed. The Study Guide was written by Catholic writer and apologist, Carl Olson, under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron. In addition to the Commentary, each section of the study guide includes “Questions for Understanding" based on Bishop Barron’s video presentation, Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church and “Questions for Application" that help you connect the material to your own life and experience.
The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, study guide, facilitator guide, answer key, Bishop Barron’s book, the Faith Clips DVD and prayer cards.
Leaders can also register for a free training webinar which teaches the best ways to run an effective CATHOLICISM study group.
