THE PRIORITY OF CHRIST Toward a Postliberal Catholicism Robert Barron

Bishop Robert Barron transcends liberal/conservative and Protestant/Catholic divides to explore the possibilities of postliberal theology for Catholicism.

“This stunning summa for a ‘postliberal Catholicism’ will at once subvert any tendency among the faithful to demand a facile ‘fix,’ as well as offer lucid direction for anyone daring to undertake a pilgrimage of understanding—in and with the Christ.” —DAVID B. BURRELL, CSC, University of Notre Dame (emeritus) “A downright lovely book, written with a kind of winsome literary flair that exhibits the inviting clarity of a master teacher. Highly recommended for sharp undergraduates;


required reading for graduate students and scholars.” —JAMES K. A. SMITH, Religious Studies Review
