Christianity and the Modern World | Bishop Barron – Jordan B Peterson Podcast S4 E15
Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life: https://jordanbpeterson.com/Beyond-Order @Bishop Robert Barron and I sat down on March 5th, 2021 to discuss a variety of topics in the realm of the importance of the bible, the bridge between religion and biology, the nature of good, how the limits of the bible can be useful, why young people are leaving the catholic church, the hunger for serious deep conversation on religious topics done intellectually, and more.
Bishop Barron is the founder of Word on Fire catholic ministries and auxiliary bishop of the archdiocese of Los Angeles. He is also a number one Amazon best-selling author and has published a number of books on theology and spiritual life. He has been invited to speak about religion at the headquarters of Facebook, Google, and Amazon and is one of the most followed Catholics of the world on social media.
Professor Jordan Peterson is a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto and the author of the best-selling books 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos (2018) and Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief. At the University of Toronto, his students regard him as one of three truly life-changing professors. He often deals with the polarising political crises of today and his online programmes help people determine who they are, resolving problems from the past and rectifying personality faults. Peterson has become something of a lifestyle guru for thousands of men and boys who feel displaced by a ‘woke’ world.
In this video discussion, called Christianity and the Modern World, Bishop Robert Barron engages Peterson in a sparkling discussion about Christianity and its role in the modern world. It begins with the question: Why has the Church abandoned its youth? Later on in the discussion, note Bishop Barron’s unforgettable account of the resurrection and is impact upon human life.
