"I feel very enthusiastic about the engaging and dynamic presentation of
medical ethics in this text. The multimedia aids encourage creativity by both
the instructor and the students and, along with the exercises, will create a
personal integration of the material that makes medical ethics relevant for

"I've read it in manuscript: now I want the book! Here is
theology earthed. Celia plants the planet firmly within the
providence of God. This book is popular in its appeal and
scholarly in its depth. It connects with the environmental
agenda and stretches the reader to reach new heights of
understanding on this vitally important subject."
The Rt Revd James Jones
Bishop of Liverpool
“I believe the Text is well suited to the needs of our students given the diverse background of our Student Body at St. John's University, Queens, New York. Our students bring a great deal of Cultural and Religious diversity to the classroom, so it is important to have a Text that can introduce Christianity to them in an objective manner.”
James J. Hannan
Adjunct Professor of Theology
"The style and tone of the writing is just right. In fact, many times the text reads like a story. The author's scholarship imbues the text but is kept somewhat in the background, and thus does not get in the way."

"This is a fine text: very thorough and readable. The author has a wonderful
grasp of history, and conveys it with ease to students."

"Natalie Kertes Weaver has done those who teach introductory theology courses a great service with this accessible, engaging, and substantive text. Drawing on years of classroom experience, she makes theology understandable to a diverse student body. All students, from the super-devout to the religiously indifferent, from cradle Christians to non-Christians, will come to a critical, appreciative, and historically grounded understanding of Christian beliefs and practices. A fantastic text for the contemporary college classroom."

“McMahon's text has proved to be most effective in engaging students who possess various levels of belief and who comprise diverse demographics with the ongoing questions surrounding the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith.”

"Karen Elliott has given us a clear, concise, and biblical look at Paul and his views on women. Using strong biblical and scholarly sources, Elliott demonstrates that Paul supported women in governing positions in the Church, held them as equals in the proclamation of the Good News, and submitted to women himself. This important book provides the logic and the biblical support to understand Paul as a missionary in a patriarchal society who none-the-less believed the work of the Church is not gender specific."

"I read his book and enjoyed it immensely. A fine piece of work. Were I to teach a course on this topic, I would certainly adopt it. Many thanks for sending it to me."
