MEDIA REVIEWS
"Catholic theology teachers and students will welcome this immensely readable, informative and balanced exploration of the Catholic faith tradition. The authors demonstrate their years of teaching experience with imaginative explanations of difficult elements of the Catholic faith that are free of unnecessary jargon. Many will welcome the author' special sensitivity to the kinds of questions that today's religious inquirers often bring to the study of Catholicism. This volume may become the new standard for introductory texts on Catholic theology." Richard Gaillardetz, Joseph Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology, Boston College "Bauerschmidt and Buckley have produced a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the breadth and depth of Catholic theology. Their account is informed, comprehensive, faithful, but not partisan. The entire sweep of Catholic theology is considered and presented. Students and anyone interested in theology will find it an invaluable guide." Michael Root, Catholic University of America "This book is a tour de force, interesting enough for a scholar to read, accessible enough for student use, comprehensive but not overwhelming, brilliant but not flashy, full of useful insights, historical perspective, and good judgment. It fills a gaping hole in the world of theological pedagogy. An impressive accomplishment by two well-seasoned teaching theologians." John C. Cavadini, University of Notre Dame
