Editorial Reviews

"The succinct considerations address the historical or contemporary context of the work, explain the significance of the author, and contain a brief synopsis of the actual title."  —Library Journal


"For Catholics who have forgotten, or never discovered, treasured books of their own tradition, Don Brophy deserves applause for his brief but knowing introductions to a hundred of them."  —Kenneth L. Woodward, author, Making Saints

"This is the work of a man who loves both books and the Catholic tradition. Don Brophy speaks to head and heart in this gentle guide to Catholic books, with choices both classic and surprising." —Jane Redmont, author, When in Doubt, Sing

"This is the most congenial history of Catholic thought one could ever hope to find. On every page, I found some new connection to be made or an intriguing insight to be savored."  —Phyllis Tickle, author, The Divine Hours
