Best available overview of Catholicism
Fr. Bryan organizes 36 lectures around the major questions people have about the Catholic faith. Personally, I was raised a Lutheran and became a Catholic as an adult through RCIA. I found this series information-packed, lively, and frankly inspiring. Fr. Byron is simply an outstanding teacher with a passionate faith. He uses countless examples and real-life situations to illustrate his points. For example, when he talks about the centrality of gratitude in Christian living, you can understand how the Christian faith can animate your relationships, your work, etc. He's able to explain complex theology, the liturgical year and other concepts clearly. I like that you can skip around or go back to the sections that cover your personal questions. I highly recommend this series. It is truly the best book or audio overview of Catholicism.
