What People are Saying
“Robert Barron is a great teacher of the Church and a gifted biblical commentator who breaks open the Word of God for our day as Ambrose and Augustine did for theirs.\"
—George Weigel, Ethics and Public Policy Center
“One element of Bishop Barron's appeal is that he's so reasonable. He probably incarnates the classic Catholic synthesis between faith and reason more thoroughly and overtly than virtually any other living figure.\"
—John Allen Jr., bestselling author and Vatican journalist
“Bishop Robert Barron is arguably the greatest Catholic communicator of our times.\"
—Arthur Brooks, Professor of the Practice of Public Leadership, Harvard University","
“Once again, Bishop Barron has produced a masterclass in catechetical instruction! Deftly weaving Scripture, theology, philosophy, poetry, and art into a cohesive presentation of the “source and summit” of our faith, This Is My Body is a beautiful gift to the Church. Absent in our understanding in recent decades has been a true synthesis of the Eucharist as both meal and sacrifice; Bishop Barron once again succeeds in drawing both identities into a unified whole. Albeit aided by his nuanced grasp of theological concepts and philosophical principles, what is most clearly communicated is his own deep, personal relationship with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. For either the church pew or the university classroom, this book is a timely addition to the work of the Eucharistic Revival!\"
