I am quite often deeply encouraged through my growing personal friendship with Fr. Robert Barron. He has shared several occasions with me, in both public and private dialogue, and has consistently proven to be a gentle, gracious and engaging Christian man. He is also one of the best Christian preachers and communicators in America. While Bob Barron is deeply intellectual he has that unique quality that allows him to speak clearly to the ordinary person. He recently did a presentation on Ross Douthat’s book, Bad Religion, that is a great follow-up to my extensive review of the book from several weeks ago. This last nearly nine minutes but it is worth the entire time. You will get a balanced and fair critique of our unique American heresies from this clip.
