Thanks to Image Books, today I’m giving away TEN copies of the new paperback edition of Fr. Robert Barron’s bestselling book, Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith (If you missed it, be sure to enter the “Catholicism” Sweepstakes sponsored by Word on Fire and Image. They’re giving away two trips to Paris and Rome!)

Catholicism: A Journey to the Heart of the Faith

by Fr. Robert Barron

Image Books, 304 pages, paperback
Released on March 4, 2014

CatholicismWhat is Catholicism? A 2,000 living tradition? A worldview? A way of life? A relationship? A mystery? In Catholicism Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, seeking to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith.

Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ’s incarnation, life, and teaching, Father Barron moves through the defining elements of Catholicism – from sacraments, worship, and prayer, to Mary, the Apostles, and Saints, to grace, salvation, heaven, and hell – using his distinct and dynamic grasp of art, literature, architecture, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy, and history to present the Church to the world.

Paired with his documentary film series of the same title, Catholicism is an intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty. Eclectic, unique, and inspiring, Father Barron brings the faith to life for a new generation, in a style that is both faithful to timeless truths, while simultaneously speaking in the language of contemporary life.

Includes over 100 black and white and color photos.
