    G.K. Chesterton once said that Catholicism keeps its beliefs "side by side like two strong colors, red and white . . . It has always had a healthy hatred of pink."

    Catholicism is a both/and, not either/or. It celebrates the union of contraries--grace and nature, faith and reason, Scripture and tradition, body and soul--in such a way that the full energy of each opposing element remains in place.

    In Vibrant Paradoxes, best-selling author Bishop Robert Barron brings together themes and motifs that many would consider mutually exclusive, or, at best, awkward in their juxtaposition. But seen through the Incarnation, these opposites come together and reflect new light in every direction.

    Praise for Vibrant Paradoxes
    "A book to savor, ponder, and celebrate, Vibrant Paradoxes is a treasure chest of insight, informed by a profound Catholic faith and a deep intelligence, and written with the kind of brio that makes the New Evangelization fun." - George Weigel

    "We all know Bishop Robert Barron's engaging style as a preacher and teacher. In Vibrant Paradoxes: The Both/And of Catholicism, we find this gifted writer at his best. Wtih freshness and insight Bishop Barron explores seemingly opposite realities: sin and mercy, suffering and joy, faith and reason. His profound understanding of the spiritual life guides the reader to discover how the Christian faith is 'permanently fresh, startling, and urgent.' Vibrant Paradoxes is a must read for anyone looking for a new presentation of our ancient faith." -Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington
