I’m Bishop Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and host of the award-winning "CATHOLICISM" series, which aired on PBS.
About a year ago, I became the first Catholic Bishop to host an AMA on Reddit, which you can read here: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/9h5oi0/im_a_catholic_bishop_and_philosopher_who_loves/
It was a great experience—very much like the quodlibetal questions of the Middle Ages—and I wanted to come back and do it again!
I'm a religion correspondent for NBC and have also appeared on "The Rubin Report," the Jordan B. Peterson Podcast, and the Ben Shapiro Show.
I've been invited to speak about religion at the headquarters of Facebook, Google, and Amazon, and I've keynoted many conferences and events all over the world. I'm also a #1 Amazon bestselling author and have published numerous books, essays, and articles on theology and the spiritual life.
My website, https://WordOnFire.org, reaches millions of people each year, and I'm one of the world's most followed Catholics on social media:
- 1.7 million+ Facebook fans (https://facebook.com/BishopRobertBarron)
- 215,000+ YouTube subscribers (https://youtube.com/user/wordonfirevideo)
- 149,000+ Twitter followers (https://twitter.com/BishopBarron)
I'm probably best known for my YouTube commentaries on faith, movies, culture, and philosophy. I especially love engaging atheists and skeptics in the comboxes.
Ask me anything!
