Coming July 2015 – “Exploring Catholic Theology” by Fr. Robert Barron

Fr. Robert Barron is one of my favorite Catholic writers and my Catholic customers absolutely love him. Coming next July Baker Academic will release his new book Exploring Catholic Theology. Here’s the catalog description along with the table of contents:

“Robert Barron is one of the Catholic Church’s premier theologians and author of the influential The Priority of Christ. In this volume, Barron sets forth a thoroughgoing vision for an evangelical catholic theology that is steeped in the tradition and engaged with the contemporary world. Striking a balance between academic rigor and accessibility, the book covers issues of perennial interest in the twenty-first-century church: who God is, how to rightly worship him, and how his followers engage contemporary culture. Topics include the doctrine of God, Catholic theology, philosophy, liturgy, and evangelizing the culture. This work will be of special interest to readers concerned about the so-called ‘new atheism.’


Part 1: Doctrine of God
1. Augustine’s Questions: Why the Augustinian Theology of God Matters Today
2. Thomas Aquinas and Why the Atheists Are Right
3. The Metaphysics of Coinherence: A Mediation on the Essence of the Christian Message

6. A Tale of Two Cardinals: Avery Dulles’s Creative Engagement of the Thought of John Henry Newman

13. Announcing the Lordship of Jesus Christ: The Evangelical Task within Contemporary Culture
14. From Correlation to Assimilation: A New Model for the Church-Culture Dialogue

No doubt this will be a solid contribution to the Catholic market. Exploring Catholic Theology will be a paperback with 256 pages and sell for $24.99.
