"The author asks practical questions, and answers them with considerable intelligence and careful scholarship. The subject matter is important yet is seldom grasped with the depth one finds in this volume."

“Kaltner and McKenzie have done it again! As in their earlier Uncensored Bible, they have written a lively, insightful, and humorous introduction to the Bible that is sure to keep all readers—especially students—awake, informed, and entertained. In the field of biblical studies, that is no small feat! I enthusiastically recommend The Back Door Introduction to the Bible to one and all.”

“This volume celebrates the 25th anniversary of Economic Justice for All, a notable pastoral letter of the U.S. bishops. The text is more than a worthy commemoration because Mark Allman has brought together a fine array of scholars who retrieve insights of the letter and develop excellent ethical reflections appropriate to our present economic situation.”

"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.

"Celia Deane-Drummond has established herself as one of the foremost amongst a new generation of scholars working in the field of Christian eco-theology. This volume provides an erudite overview and a balanced assessment of the state of the debate after three decades of heated discourse. She also
provides a clear sense of direction for further reflection—with reference to the wisdom tradition. Here she weaves the Hebraic texts together with cosmic Christology, feminist views on Sophia and the pressing need for responsible decisionmaking in science and in civil society."
Professor Ernst Conradie
"A well researched and reflective account of the position of women in ecclesiastical and secular society, in the past and present. Verena Wright, wife, mother and 'unruly' woman uses literature, her own experience and other sources to discern and tell the story of women's inferior status."
Mary Kelly, nds
“Students have responded positively to this text, which challenges them in a non-threatening manner to reconsider their preconceptions.”

"I'm impressed by the clarity of the material, which, nevertheless, does not sacrifice content or scholarship. Congratulations."

“Martin Albl has written a very helpful text for teachers of fundamental theology or introduction to theology courses. Reason, Faith, and Tradition is accessible and also scholarly, thoughtful, and thought-provoking. Apparent throughout is Dr. Albl’s conviction that faith and reason are not only compatible but necessary for sound intellectual development. Undergrads and entry level grad students alike will learn much from Albl’s post-critical theology.”
