What is faith exactly? How do faith and reason coexist? How do we grow in power and freedom when we surrender to an almighty God? Where does philosophy fit into Catholic theology? What is the foundation for Catholic reasoning? Bishop Robert Barron addresses these questions and more at Duke University’s Goodson Chapel in an event hosted by the Duke Catholic Center.

    A brilliant & absorbing lecture. Intellectually stimulating & most informative. Left one hungry for more.

    I wish I had learned from this lecture long ago as a Duke student. Thanks, Bishop Barron, for your brilliant discussion on Catholic Christian faith and intelligence. St. Anselm of Canterbury surely celebrates your modern presentation on “faith seeking understanding” and “faith and reason as friends because both are gifts from God.” May all of Duke listen to your words and remember that Duke was founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ and “religio et eruditio.”
