As secularism gains influence, and increasing numbers
see religion as dull and backward, Robert Barron wants
to illuminate how beautiful, intelligent, and relevant the
Catholic faith is. In this compelling new book—drawn
from conversations with and narrated by award-winning
Vatican journalist John L. Allen, Jr.—Barron, founder
of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, proclaims in vivid
language the goodness and truth of the Catholic tradition.
Through Barron’s smart, practical, artistic, and theological
observations as well as personal anecdotes—from
engaging atheists on YouTube to discussing his days
as a young diehard baseball fan from Chicago—To Light
a Fire on the Earth covers prodigious ground. Touching
everything from Jesus to prayer, science, movies, atheism,
the spiritual life, the fate of Church in modern times, beauty, art, and social media,
Barron reveals why the Church matters today and how Catholics can intelligently engage a
skeptical world.
