It’s great. Fr. Robert Barron is a brilliant, educated man, but manages to put everything forth in a way that makes it interesting and even gripping (I guess that may be because he’s really a believer!). He’s preparing another series on evangelization and then a “Catholicism Pt. II.”
It really is beautiful and moving. Brilliant writing and cinemtography in this. I was spellbound and so glad that I had (finally!) swum the Tiber.
Unfortunately the series is pretty expensive. I couldn’t afford to buy it.
Maybe my church could buy it.
We have the Blue Ray. I just bought a regular DVD so we can loan it to our kids. It is pricy but totally worth the investment. We watched it last winter and I plan to watch it again this winter.
I can’t wait to see it.
Our church bought several copies. I have one right here at home.
Great links. Thanks.
