Description: In a time of discouragement, how can the Church renew itself and its outreach to all people? Bishop Robert Barron, insists that a ""dumbed down"" Catholicism cannot succeed in today's highly educated society. instead, the Church needs to draw upon its great theological heritage in order to renew its hope in Christ.

Bishop Barron traces the need of the renewal of the Catholic Church through four stages: "Renewing Our Mission," regaining confidence to share the Catholic faith by looking to the Church's intellectual inheritance; "Renewing Our Minds," examining that inheritance more closely, including Thomas Aquinas, Hans Urs von Balthasar, John Henry Newman, and Pope Francis; "Renewing the Church," overcoming sexual abuse and strengthening the priesthood and family life; and "Renewing Our Culture," judgments on politics, society, and art.

Bishop Barron demonstrates again in this book his ability to make the fruits of his wide reading accessible to a broad audience, while still giving his academic colleagues much to consider.
