Product Description

* Respected scholar Barron proposes a "new" answer to the age-old liberal/conservative and Catholic/Protestant divide---Jesus as revealed in the Gospels. Following the Protestant postmodern lead, he argues that a Christocentric approach to epistemology, the doctrine of God, ethics, methaphysics, and aesthetics would invigorate both Roman Catholic theology and church life. 352 pages, softcover from Brazos.

Publisher's Description

For a long time, Christians have tried to bridge the divide between Christianity and secular liberalism with philosophizing and theologizing. In The Priority of Christ, Father 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 post-liberalism 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.

Author Bio
