Back cover copy
For each topic, the authors weave together discussion of the Bible, historical texts, reflections by important theologians, and contemporary debates and sources for a nuanced look at Catholic belief and practice. They discuss scriptural, historical, philosophical, systematic, liturgical, and moral aspects of Catholic theology. The text places particular emphasis on the interconnectedness of various beliefs and the breadth of sacramental, devotional, and moral practices within the Catholic faith. Appropriate for students at all levels, this text assumes no prior knowledge of the topic while providing depth and insight to engage those readers more familiar with the topic.

Richard Gaillardetz, Joseph Professor of Catholic Systematic Theology, Boston College
"Bauerschmidt and Buckley have produced a wonderful resource for anyone interested in the breadth and depth of Catholic theology. Their account is informed, comprehensive, faithful, but not partisan. The entire sweep of Catholic theology is considered and presented. Students and anyone interested in theology will find it an invaluable guide."
Michael Root, Catholic University of America
"This book is a tour de force, interesting enough for a scholar to read, accessible enough for student use, comprehensive but not overwhelming, brilliant but not flashy, full of useful insights, historical perspective, and good judgment. It fills a gaping hole in the world of theological pedagogy. An impressive accomplishment by two well-seasoned teaching theologians."
John C. Cavadini, University of Notre Dame
