"Martin Albl offers students a well-written and extraordinarily researched text that describes and embodies the unity of faith and reason in the Catholic tradition. The author’s command of philosophical, theological, and scientific literature provides a thoughtful and rich discussion of meaningful contemporary ideas in an accessible classroom format. The book will challenge and enlighten readers."

"Cloutier knows how to engage undergraduates, introduce them to the tradition broadly conceived, and show them (by example) how to reason."

"A uniquely engaging, provocative, and I daresay fun invitation into the fascinating worlds of the Bible by two master teachers who clearly love what they do and want to share that love with others. It's a gift to teachers and students alike. I can't wait to use it in my own introductory courses."

"This introduction to the Pauline Letters will take its place among the most accessible of its kind. Complicated history of exegesis is presented simply and comprehensibly. Summary boxes in the text and questions for review and reflection facilitate understanding. A particular strength is the focus on the theology and ethics of each letter. A final chapter completes the picture with brief presentations of the legacy of Paul in the early centuries of the church."

“I used Encountering Ancient Voices [First Edition]last term and thought very highly of it. Carvalho has done a great job in her work and the method of presentation was effective. I plan to use it again.”

"Dr. Stewart presents a history of the Catholic Church in a very engaging and reader friendly manner. She prompts students to think of where we are now and how we have gotten here. I believe Cynthia Stewart has succeeded in presenting a 'popular history.'"

"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.

"Father Givey brings to life once again the man, the monk, and the mystic who helped to shape the soul of his own generation and who continues to offer a vision of 'peace for the future'"

"The introductory nature of this book would be espeically useful where its combination of foundational theology and theology of marriage could be the course focus. It is a foil for doing fundamental theology with strong material on marriage."

"Thank God for unruly women like Verena Wright and for her positive and stimulating book. Parishes could well skip sermons on Sundays from time to time and read out chunks of it instead."
