    This is a short book that Bp. Barron wrote based off the content of his presentations at a few popular tech companies (he's also spoken at Amazon, which funny enough was for the book). His main message is an outcry that it seems like it's getting harder and harder to have real, hone...

    This is all good stuff. I've seen a trend. We're not talking to one another, and it seems to be getting worse. Robert Barron has some good ideas how to get the conversation going. More, how to make the conversation productive. Recommended. Notes: recommended by Ben Shapiro ...

    Very good commentary on HOW to have a religious argument. Very important point: Religion is not based on no evidence whatsoever. Anyone who makes this claim has not read enough. There is absolutely NO sacrifice of the intellect. If anything, religion requests, asks, begs that you us...

    As a huge fan of Bishop Barron's work, I enjoyed reading this book. I appreciated that the impetus for it came from interviews he did with Google and Facebook. In the current social media climate where disagreements quickly devolve into non-productive, potentially damaging insults and ...

    Who are you arguing to and how to get your point across Bishop Baron does a wonderful job of explaining the faith with vigor and zeal. But this to me can only be seen because I am of the faith. His introduction states that the book came about through discussions that he had with mem...

    Short, succinct, and to the point, but immensely readable like all of Bishop Barron?s books. He has been graced with the ability to encourage each person to seek out the best in life, especially when our culture is leading them down the wrong path. More importantly, if you are tired ...

    After reading the title, I expected the book to be about how to argue religion. Instead, I felt that it was more about the importance that we continue to argue for religion and what it stands for in our lives. The book was also more philosophical than I expected and required a higher l...

    Written at a fairly high intellectual level, this work thoughtfully discussed the importance of civilized debate and argument at a time society has descended into a culture of shouting, harassing, and a general unwillingness to listen to other points of view. This short work effectivel...

    The Bishop is on to something I am in a lay ministry two year course in NC . I am also studying to become a lay Carmelite. I have been reading Romans and lots of books on Salvation History and I need to learn more about my faith. I am very interested in being able to discuss my fait...

    Brilliant. Short book that captures the sophistication of the Catholic Faith and puts it up against the edge of secularism in presentations at two corporate bastions. With his signature eloquence, Bishop Barron is powerfully compelling as an Ambassador for Christianity and an Evangelis...

    Great book for religious and non-religious people alike. Written with great style, it describes the right attitude required to have a proper discussion not only about religion but about anything that matters, and proceedes to show that true faith is indeed grounded on reason spanning f...

    A nice collection of Bishop Barron's thoughts on how to have a constructive conversation with those whose beliefs differ from your own, as well as some introduction to philosophy and a few of the reasons he maintains his Christian viewpoint over atheism and secularism. ...

    Not an interesting read His expression of his thoughts were complicated and tended to lose me as to the point he was making. If he used simple language it would be easier to follow. ...

    This is a short book that Bp. Barron wrote based off the content of his presentations at a few popular tech companies (he's also spoken at Amazon, which funny enough was for the book). His main message is an outcry that it seems like it's getting harder and harder to have real, hone...

    Very good commentary on HOW to have a religious argument. Very important point: Religion is not based on no evidence whatsoever. Anyone who makes this claim has not read enough. There is absolutely NO sacrifice of the intellect. If anything, religion requests, asks, begs that you us...

    As a huge fan of Bishop Barron's work, I enjoyed reading this book. I appreciated that the impetus for it came from interviews he did with Google and Facebook. In the current social media climate where disagreements quickly devolve into non-productive, potentially damaging insults and ...

    A nice collection of Bishop Barron's thoughts on how to have a constructive conversation with those whose beliefs differ from your own, as well as some introduction to philosophy and a few of the reasons he maintains his Christian viewpoint over atheism and secularism. ...

    Not an interesting read His expression of his thoughts were complicated and tended to lose me as to the point he was making. If he used simple language it would be easier to follow. ...

    Excellent read! Bishop Baron is so well educated and a true intellectual. Yet he conveys teachings in a manner so readable and understandable to all. His writings are must read books. ...

    Bishop Barron is articulate, wise, and winsome. Everything he writes is helpful for those who want to find ways to build bridges between people of faith and our secular culture. ...

    Cogently argued and manages to condense a good deal of Thomisitc theology, Classical philosophy and modern thought into a relatively slim volume. ...

    Intellectually challenging and wonderfully written. The eternal question of uncausing the cause comes to the core of thought of thoughts. Enthralling reading experience for my Christmas of 2018. ...

    A surprisingly rich and deep little book about commonsense strategies for arguing religion online and the validity of belief in God which makes this exercise worthwhile. ...

    Bishop Barron does a two step job in this book. In the first step, he argues against things like scientism, straw-man arguments, fideism, voluntarism, and so on, and so on. Finally, he argues for arguing religion. In the second part, he does something totally beautiful through the ...
