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.

Study individually or in a Group

You can watch the Untold Blessing DVD and then probe more deeply into Bishop Barron’s message by using the companion Study Guide, which is divided into sections that correspond to each part of Bishop Barron's presentation. The Study Guide was written by Catholic author Mark P. Shea, under the direction and approval of Bishop Barron.

Each section provides “Questions for Understanding" based on the DVD presentation and references from Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and “Questions for Reflection" that help you reflect on how the material is relevant to your own life and experience.

For group study, you can present the program in eight 90-minute sessions.  Each session includes DVD viewing and small group discussion of Study Guide questions.  Participants should prepare the questions on their own after viewing the DVD but before the small group discussion.

The Leader’s Kit provides essential resources for lay discussion leaders, including the DVD, lessons, facilitator guide, answer key, and the companion book by Bishop Barron, The Strangest Way. In addition, leaders can access free, downloadable promotional materials and other tools using the “Support Materials” tab above.
