    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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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...
