In this compelling new book - drawn from conversations with and narrated by award-winning Vatican journalist John L. Allen Jr. - Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, proclaims in vivid language the goodness and truth of the Catholic tradition. Through Barron's smart, practical, artistic, and theological observations - as well as through personal anecdotes about everything from engaging atheists on YouTube to his days as a young die-hard baseball fan from Chicago - To Light a Fire on the Earth covers prodigious ground.
Touching on a wide range of subjects, including Jesus, prayer, science, movies, atheism, the spiritual life, the fate of the Church in modern times, beauty, art, and social media, Barron reveals why the Church matters today and how Catholics can intelligently engage a skeptical world.

Wonderful, so much packed in this book.
Been listening to Bishop Barron for 3 years now, converted Lutheran to Catholicism. Barron has been instrumental for me in rounding out what I did not get in RCIA. Those familiar with his digital media: podcasts, videos with hear some familiar Barronisms in here. I love his emphasis on using intellect to deepen our faith. Books and authors he finds influential never disappoint. Refreshing to hear Bishop Barron's own story, and about how Word on Fire came to life. The narrator had a super pleasant voice, perfect to match the passion and wisdom in this book. Bravo! I'm off to buy the hardback!

Not by Bishop Barron
The book says it is "by" Bishop Barron, it isn't. It's a biography of Bishop Barron by John Allen. I was very disappointed in this as I wanted a discussion of the topic by Barron, not an interpretation by Allen
