"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.'"

"Moral Traditions is a first-class introduction to the many and varied ethical perspectives associated with the world’s major religions. Sensitive, pertinent, and focused, this volume offers clear and manageable descriptions of the moral dimensions of the traditions it surveys while inviting further investigation and dialogue. Rapela Heidt resists the temptation to build overarching systems and allows each ethical perspective to speak on its own terms."

"What a stroke of good fortune to discover Sr. Marielle Frigge's Beginning Biblical Studies! Thorough, lucid, engagingly written and visually appealing, this book makes a teacher's job easier. While supplying the critical mass of clear, reliable information that makes basic sense of what's going on, it leaves students ample time to read the Bible itself. Offering guidance to the biblical texts rather than overly detailed explanations that compete with them, Beginning Biblical Studies expertly builds a strong foundation for further study. Highly recommended!"

“The author has done a commendable job in highlighting important modern developments in Roman Catholicism. I especially found the chapters on ecumenism and interfaith dialogue helpful in my introductory courses, which are becoming more and more confessionally and even religiously diverse."

“At last, a responsible and interesting new volume on Paul’s letters for students! I whole-heartedly recommend it.”

"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."

“Students have responded positively to this text, which challenges them in a non-threatening manner to reconsider their preconceptions.”

"Between scientism and religious fundamentalism lie many more-thoughtful options. Four of them, developed from the perspective of four disciplines, are attractively offered in this book. The book makes it abundantly clear that there is no reason for opposition between science and faith. It successfully stimulates serious thought about the real, and complex, issue of how best to relate them."
