“Dan Scholz offers a thoroughly readable and informative introduction to the Gospels and Acts. . . . Each chapter on the Gospels and Acts begins with considerations about [a] book’s historical setting (author, dating, sources, and audience) and moves to significant exploration of how the story is told. . . . The book is easy to navigate and contains frequent sidebars and helpful chapter conclusions with additional information to enhance the reading experience.”

It is a refreshingly direct Christological overview in which McMahon allows the debates, concerns, and questions, not only of scholars but also of the faithful, to emerge from the texts and then to be addressed in a balanced and thoughtful manner. Proceeding from a low ascending Christology, the journey begi ...

“In Beginning Biblical Studies, Dr. Marielle Frigge, O.S.B., reveals herself as a superb teacher. Grounded in solid scholarship and written in graceful prose, her textbook informs and guides those unfamiliar with the Bible; in contrast to many textbook writers, she avoids the temptation to overwhelm her readers with data.”

“World Religions in Dialogue is that unique textbook which combines competent introduction, accessibility, and a thoughtful dialogue of insiders and outsiders in conversation. It will be a much-appreciated text for the introductory course on world religions, showing both the what of religions and the how of learning religions in an ongoing conversation.”
Francis X. Clooney, SJ,
