Tuesday Night Book Group: Proclaiming the Power of Christ by Bishop Robert Barron
May 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
Join the Tuesday Night Book Group as we read and discuss Bishop Barron’s poetic expounding of the Word of God in Proclaiming the Power of Christ: Classic Sermons, allowing sacred Scripture to draw us into deeper intimacy with God as Barron’s lyrical and thoughtful reflections provoke and encourage us to explore more profoundly our own personal relationship with Jesus.
Bishop Robert Barron is an acclaimed author, speaker, and theologian. Currently bishop of the Diocese of Winona-Rochester (Minnesota), he founded Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and hosted “Catholicism,” an award-winning PBS documentary.
This series will reference resources for Scriptural study from a Catholic perspective, including A Catholic Introduction to the Bible by John Bergsma and Brant Pitre; Food for the Soul: Reflections on the Mass Readings | Cycle A by Peter Kreeft; and The Mass Readings Explained by Brant Pitre on CatholicProductions.com. We also recommend Understanding the Bible and The Senses of Scripture.
As the discussion of each sermon is self-contained and explores the spiritual sense of the Scriptural passage underlying it, everyone is welcome and free to join us at any time for one or more sessions of this series.
To receive the Zoom link for this series, please email “Bishop Barron” in the subject line to [email protected].
