MEDIA REVIEWS
"In retaining much of the original content, the revised edition stands on a firm foundation. The new content may broaden the work's appeal. Recommended for academic and large public libraries." - Booklist
"The quality of the content is good, above all for use in an academic (college library, early years of university) setting. . . . As a desk reference work it would be a useful addition to the working theologian or priest/minister engaged in church and community work." - Reference Reviews
"Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduates and general readers." - Choice
