Robert Barron con The Priority of Christ: Toward a Postliberal Catholicism (English Edition)
A Major Statement on Christology from Bishop Robert Barron
For a long time, Christians have tried to bridge the divide between Christianity and secular liberalism with philosophy and theology. Bishop Robert Barron shows that the answer to this debate--and the way to move forward--lies in Jesus. Barron transcends the usual liberal/conservative or Protestant/Catholic divides with a postliberal Catholicism that brings the focus back on Jesus as revealed in the New Testament narratives.
Barron's classical Catholic postliberalism will be of interest to a broad audience including not only the academic community but also preachers and general readers interested in entering the dialogue between Catholicism and postliberalism. The hardcover edition includes a new preface by the author.
Praise for The Priority of Christ
"Barron's wonderful book The Priority of Christ brings postliberalism back to its Catholic home. . . . A downright lovely book, written with a kind of winsome literary flair that exhibits the inviting clarity of a master teacher. Highly recommended."
--James K. A. Smith, Religious Studies Review
"The book is full of gems worthy of hours of contemplation."
--Mark G. Boyer, The Priest
