In this video, I review some of the books published by the Word on Fire Institute in the last few years. As a catholic myself, I love each one of these books - not only they are beautiful editions, but of course their content is very rich and inspiring. Here is the Word on Fire Institute's website: 🤍bookstore.wordonfire.org/ Word on Fire Catholic Ministries is a nonprofit global media apostolate that supports the work of Bishop Robert Barron and reaches millions of people to draw them into — or back to — the Catholic faith. Word on Fire is evangelical; it proclaims Jesus Christ as the source of conversion and new life. Word on Fire is Catholic; it utilizes the tremendous resources of the Roman Catholic tradition—art, architecture, poetry, philosophy, theology, and the lives of the saints— in order to explain and interpret the event of Jesus Christ.

Great video my friend, to the very end 😉. I am looking forward to our discussion on St Augustine.

Nonbeliever but read novel The violent bear It Away and loved it ... I keep my mind open... would recommend The weight of glory and other addresses by C S Lewis and Waiting for God by Simone Weil( 2 words : weight and wait) ...amazing writers, amazing insights... Do you watch Malcom Guite? Poet, scholar and priest out of cambridge, his booktube videos are wonderful...check him out for sure! all the best...

What lovely synchronicity — I just finished watching Bishop Barron’s Catholicism tv series last night.

So many of these are books or authors I’ve meant to read for ages. Augustine’s Confessions, Chesterton’s Orthodoxy, Fulton Sheen (I have his book on Mary)... I also haven’t read The Seven Storey Mountain yet, though I’m working my way through Merton at the moment; currently reading Run to the Mountain, the first volume of his collected journals. I’m very much enjoying watching him develop into the man who could write Contemplative Prayer and his extraordinary letters to other writers. I remember reading somewhere that, as an older man, he was embarrassed by Seven Storey Mountain because he was still so young and prideful when he wrote it, and I have to wonder if he felt similarly about his early journals. His tumultuous journey to monasticism gives me hope for myself.

The Rule of Benedict I have read most of, dipping in and out of it over the years. The author who first got me into Benedictine spirituality and the Rule was Carol Bonomo. Her book The Abbey Up the Hill, about a year as an oblate at a Benedictine monastery, was instrumental in my faith journey, which is cumulating in finally taking RCIA this fall. I can’t recommend her book highly enough.

I’ll have to check out Light from Light too, it sounds very edifying.

All the best, from a long-time watcher who’s been too shy to comment until now. Congrats on finishing your Divine Comedy series by the way! I’m looking forward to reading the books and watching your commentaries in January, when I’ll have a semester off from university.

Sweet collection. I want to get into Augustine's writings besides Confessions and the City of God; I heard his work "On Christian Doctrine" was really good. I think he's a great writer but it's a bit dark and depressing, I have had a much more pleasant time reading Origen (On First Principles) and Gregory of Nyssa. Have you ever read any of the Scholastic theologians by any chance?

Those editions of the gospels and the rest of the new testament look wonderful! I also never would have thought I'd be so intrigued by a book about the Nicene Creed! Thanks for sharing, Tom

I might be interested in reading some of those books, since I love world religions and the rich Catholic tradition of intellectual curiosity. When I took a Medieval European history class my junior year of university (with a visiting British professor from Harvard), one of our assigned readings was an excerpt of The Rule of St. Benedict. My father's undergraduate alma mater, Saint Vincent College in Pennsylvania, was founded by Benedictines, and the nearby monastery is still active. Many of the monks are professors at the college. My great-great-grandfather Hugo's first job in America was tending to the monks' horses.

I also love books about nuns, and have been listening to the Ask Sister podcast for almost ten years. So many nuns have produced such amazing books about philosophy, religion, spirituality, science, and much more.

I used to be Catholic, but I hadn't heard about this series (except for the Word on Fire NT). So I was interested to find out what they published. I have nothing against this selection, but isn't it odd how series like this always include the same books? Did the world really need another edition of the Confessions or Orthodoxy? I know Barron is an O'Connor fan, so he's trying to turn her into a "standard" Catholic author, which is good I suppose (but if O'Connor is read honestly, she will always upset readers, Catholic or not). Series like this are so predictable I bet I know the next books they will publish -- they will probably soon have their own editions of The Story of a Soul, Intro to the Devout Life, The Spiritual Exercises, The Practice of the Presence, The Imitation, Interior Castle, Gerard Manly Hopkins, and maybe something by CS Lewis. If they want to get a bit edgy, maybe they could do an edition of Julian of Norwich or the Cloud of Unknowing or Charles de Foucauld's writings. Or, what the hell, live dangerously and publish Dorothy Day, lol.

Or, of course (how could I forget???), Dante.

Thanks for talking about these. I'll keep an eye on the series to see if they publish something I might like.

Edit: fixed some typos

What a magnificent collection. Those editions of the New Testament are so gorgeous.

I wasn't aware of Thomas Merton, but I immediately added The Seven Story Mountain to my list after watching this.

Wonderful collection! I want The Seven Storey Mountain! I have a very old copy I inherited from my parents but it has gotten fragile. I really want to reread it because many years ago it was a prime reason why I reverted back to Catholicism. Orthodoxy is such an amazing book! Thanks for this video! It is nice to know of practicing Catholics who treasure the intellectual heritage of the Church. It is something I love about being Catholic.
