Praise for Robin Ryan
“For years Robin Ryan has written and taught about Jesus Christ with great clarity, deep insight, and a pastoral heart. He places the treasures of tradition in touch with contemporary questions. Listening to him will reward the hearer with beautiful, challenging understandings of their own.” – Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ, Distinguished Professor of Theology, Fordham University
 
 “Robin Ryan is not only a careful and thoughtful scholar. He is a master teacher who makes crystal clear how the Bible and the tradition understand and profess Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ. Perhaps even more important, however, he is a person of faith who will inspire those who encounter him in this series to deeper faith in and commitment to Jesus themselves.” – Stephen Bevans, SVD, Catholic Theological Union
 
“Fr. Robin Ryan’s astute insights and pastoral sensibilities are clearly evident. Always with a hint of humor, Fr. Ryan brings his training as a systematic theologian and the charism of his Passionist community into conversations that matter.” – Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union

  1. Seeker

    Outstanding!

    I have purchased a number of products from Now You Know, all of them very good. But this retreat is by far the best one yet for me. Topic 6 “Christ the Source of Communion” and Topic 9 “Christ the Good Samaritan” were particularly moving and challenging. I would highly recommend Gazing on the Face of Christ for those who would like to make a retreat but who don’t have the time to get away. I would love to see many more offerings from Fr. Ryan!

  2. Sister Josephine

    Amazing Presenter!

    We used Father Ryan’s tapes for our annual retreat and were blessed with having Father join us for the last day. All the Sisters enjoyed this experience.

  3. Matt P.

    Thank you, Fr. Ryan

    Excellent retreat. Fr. Ryan’s insightful and relevant guidance has helped me to understand our Lord more fully. I will listen to this retreat again and again.

  4. Rita

    His style of teaching is very down to earth!

    I have used Fr. Ryan ‘s Gazing on the face of Christ with my RCIA retreat classes and with short sessions with our Catholic elementary school teachers. His style of teaching is very down to earth, great delivery and his core message is that we are all called to holiness no matter what our station in life.

  5. Rita

    Love Fr. Ryan’s calm, sincere delivery style.
