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 in The Priority of Christ, that a Christocentric approach to epistemology, the doctrine of God, ethics, methaphysics, and aesthetics would invigorate both Roman Catholic theology and church life. Hardcover; 2016 Edition.

Publisher's Description

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
