Deep Misunderstanding about the Bible by Fr. Robert Barron
In this talk at a Protestant College, hear Father Robert Barron explain some of the causes for many misunderstandings and misinterpretations of the Holy Scriptures, and suggest a very helpful and valuable tool that we all could use when we read and study the Bible.

Thanks for posting. I really enjoyed that.
Thanks! Another thing to watch on this Youtube feed we can watch on our tv because of the Roku beeber. Earlier today we were watching science videos from the “Smarter Every Day” presenter.
Is this a rant? A diplomatic communique? A booklong parable? A head-spinning vision? "Last night I had the strangest dream?" A court history? A political satire? A love poem? A prison letter? A would-be suicide note? Song lyrics? And what kind of song: a marching song for the foot soldiers? A suitor's plea? Written to chastise your slutty daughters? To taunt your thuggish king? To to shame your faithless countrymen?
You can't know 'what' it means until you know 'how' it means.
Father Barron is definitely a gift for the faithful. I thank God for him and you for posting this. I only wish it was designated a caucus.
I know. It’s been a half-hour already and the valkyries haven’t descended.
I think most Catholics have already sees this series on the Catholic Church, but if not, get it now. It is unbelieveable.
Don't worry - they'll come in low out of the rising sun, and about a mile out they'll put on the music.
Yes, I have seen it and watch it whenever it comes on EWTN.
Fr. Barron with the help of the Holy Spirit has put forth a beautiful and uplifting message proclaiming the richness, history, fruitfulness and doctrinal truth of our faith.
The way he does it through video reminds me of the reason churches have such beautiful stained glass.
It has made me so grateful to be Catholic.
What I like about Father Barron is that despite his erudition and the fine education that underlies his arguments, he presents his knowledge in a clear, unaffected style and unadorned Illinois accent that make his conclusions simple to grasp. As you listen, you don’t notice him sneaking up on you.
You say it even better than Fr. Barron does! :-)
Those episodes are all so powerful.
They have a great discout at your link, but I think I might have to wait until we get 500 more posters here to pool together so we can get that even bigger discount! :-)
I agree with him that we waste our time and breath trying to defend stories that non believers love to mock. Instead, we should focus on the immutable truths that are told in them.
I love that the Church leaves it to us when it comes to believe or not believe what some people call myths or legends.
I don’t know but I do believe God’s message of Himself, creation and my relationship to both that the Bible reveals.
I also look forward to finding out first hand some day:)
That's a great way of putting it.
For some "brilliant" and "lofty" speakers, you need a translator to tell you what they are trying to say. Not all speakers can communicate as clearly as Father Barron.

Thanks for providing this link.
Some of today's atheists really have a goofy imagination!
(By the way, EWTN is showing part 1 of the "St. Peter" movie right now too.)
It gladdens my heart to know you have a sense of humor. Truly.
