In the modern world, Christianity has come to be seen by many as an unintellectual, uninspiring, and unthreatening worldview. But the classical tradition of mystics and scholars reveals something quite different: the most engaging, surprising, and strange of all the religious paths.
The Strangest Way: Walking the Christian Path is an instructive guide through the breathtaking reality of what it means to be a Christian. Bishop Barron not only lays out his famous three paths to holiness—finding the center, knowing you’re a sinner, and realizing your life is not about you—but also concretizes them with practical actions. Drawing on both literary and spiritual masters, Bishop Barron invites readers to intimacy with God through imitation of his own self-gift in Christ.
