MEDIA REVIEWS
...provides enough background and references related to the ideas and disputes surrounding the nouvelle theologie that the interested reader can easily pursue a given issue more deeply...Specialists as well as those with a more general interest in theology should find the author's insights and overarching thesis worth engaging. * Bryan Kromholtz, O.P. The Thomist *
...very instructive and meticulously researched...a very welcome and much-needed first treatment of a group of figures as a group, and will no doubt bear fruit in the further research it inspires. * Peter M. Candler Jr., The Journal of Theological Studies *
this is a must read book ... It is for those that are hungry and hunger for a more meaningful faith. * Ron Dart, Clarion Journal *
Uniting a breadth of theological themes with its exploration of sacramental depths, B.'s book is one of the best introductions to the Nouvelle Theologie. * Joseph S. Flipper, Theological Studies *
This scrupulously well-documented book is the fruit of a labour of love. * Philip Kennedy, Journal of Ecclesiastical History *
I have rarely, if ever, encountered such an assured and reliable penetration of a Catholic mindset from someone outside that tradition as that achieved here by Boersma. * John Sullivan, Heythrop Journal *
The author is to be warmly congratulated on a book that is both thoroughly researched and pleasingly written, an exercise in good, solid, purposeful scholarship, which sustains the reader's interest. * Stephen N. Williams, Themelios *
Nouvelle Theologie and Sacramental Ontology: A Return to Mystery is a true contribution to ecumenical theology. It should be essential reading for ministerial students in the Protestant tradition and for Catholic seminarians, as well as students in faculties of education, religious studies and theology. * Gabriel Flynn, Irish Theological Quarterly *
a balanced and informative investigation into the defining intellectual movement of twentieth-century Catholicism. * Robert St Hilaire, Scottish Journal of Theology *
