“With its explanation of the successive quests for “the historical Jesus,” [Understanding Jesus] provides a learned and comprehensive antidote to conspiracy claims about Jesus of Nazareth. . . . The author helps students make sense of an often-bewildering array of scholarly voices. . . . Christopher McMahon’s accessible prose is supplemented with helpful charts, questions for reflection, topical bibliographies, and a glossary.”

“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.”
Mary C. Boys, S.N.J.M.
Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York
“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,

"Among study Bibles, the Anselm Academic Study Bible stands out for its excellent translation and notes (New American Bible Revised Edition), fresh introductions to the biblical books, and articles on important and neglected topics such as the social context of the Bible, the Christian Bible and Jews, and contextual and transformative interpretation. Expertly edited and amply illustrated, the volume is a most welcome resource for students and interested adults."

“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.”

“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 . . . [and encourage students] to reflect upon the assumptions and values that influence their interpretations of social issues and their practices of responsible action.”
