Review quote

This is a special book which is most highly recommended. Fr Emmet P Costello SJ, Catholic Weekly unusual and very useful book ... a highly readable narrative Times Literary Supplement An inspiring and lucid account of the genius of Catholicism. There is much in this description that all Christians can subscribe to and agree with. George Carey In their deeply impressive survey of the Catholic traditions past and present, Fathers O'Collins and Farrugia demonstrate immense learning, and offer a quite awe-inspiring global vision. Philip Jenkins, Pennsylvania State University It can be read with profit and delight as a testament to the great central truths and themes of historic Christianity. A superb achievement.
