    WOF 363: Why Art Matters

    Friends, why is art important? An uptick in vandalism against famous pieces of art, calling to mind outbreaks of iconoclasm throughout history, has raised questions about art’s value and purpose.
    On today’s “Word on Fire Show,” I discuss with Brandon Vogt why art matters.
    A listener asks, is God’s true nature love or truth? What’s the interplay between those two?

    WOF 361: What's Our Church's Growth Strategy?

    Friends, in many parts of the world the Catholic Church is shrinking. Parishes are closing or merging, pastors are devising strategies of consolidation. But for the Church to flourish, we can’t just manage decline. We need strategies for growth. That’s what Brandon Vogt and I discuss on today’s “The Word on Fire Show.”
    A listener asks, why should Catholics be pro-life?

    WOF 360: With All Her Mind w/ Rachel Bulman

    A new Word on Fire book titled With All Her Mind: A Call to the Intellectual Life features essays by Catholic women who offer a call to pursue what is too often excluded from our picture of femininity: the intellectual life.
    Full of practical advice and personal testimonies, and featuring a foreword by celebrated scholar Tracey Rowland, this collection opens readers to the endlessly unique ways for a woman to follow the first and greatest commandment: to love the Lord with all her soul, with all her heart, and with all her mind.
    Today we share an interview with the editor of the book, Rachel Bulman, conducted by Haley Stewart, Editing Manager of Word on Fire Spark.

On today’s “Word on Fire Show,” Brandon Vogt and I discuss the relationship between politics and religion and the proper place of tolerance.
    A listener asks, do you have any recommendations for explaining the Eucharist to high schoolers?

Milquetoast

Ever since Bp. Barron’s omission to evangelize Ben Shapiro in that interview, it’s easy to notice how this podcast dares not to offend or scandalize anyone even if they have to water down the authentic gospel message. I find Word on Fire to be feckless and tepid at best. More of a merchandise company than a teaching institution.
