“Dan Scholz offers a thoroughly readable and informative introduction to the Gospels and Acts. . . .

“Erin Brigham provides an accessible introduction to the riches of the Catholic social tradition for twenty-first-century students. . . . The reflection questions, summaries, and vignettes in each chapter situate Catholic social teaching as a living tradition . . .
