For a long time, Christians have tried to bridge the divide between Christianity and secular liberalism with philosophizing and theologizing. In The Priority of Christ, Bishop Robert Barron shows that the answer to this debate and the way to move forward lies in Jesus.

Bishop Barron transcends the usual liberal/conservative or Protestant/Catholic divides with a post-liberal Catholicism that brings the focus back on Jesus as revealed in the New Testament narratives. Bishop Barron’s approach will be of interest to a broad audience including not only the academic community, but also preachers and general readers interested in entering the dialogue between Catholicism and post-liberalism.
