Editorial Reviews


"Contains a remarkably succinct and explicit statement of [Taylor's] most basic religious commitments, responses by fellow Catholic scholars, and Taylor's concluding reflections and comments."--Commonweal

"A very little but very important book....Taylor's lecture and the discussion surrounding it offer an occasion of rare grace and lucidity in trying to understand how to be Christian in a culture whose intellectual elites have, for the most part, decided that Christianity is either irrelevant or threatening."--First Things

"Each of the book's eleven chapters is widely informed, and Heft has a gift for articulately summarizing and sharing the literature he reviews... I was impressed andw by this book which deserves a readership wider than its title implies... This book is highly recommended for all libraries." --American Catholic Studies

Format: Hardcover
The revivial of interest in this book after Taylor won the Tempelton in 2007 is overdue as the work remains timely athology on Catholic intellectualism today. The editor, Fr. James Heft, SM, has subsequently compiled other anthologies of equally important and contemporary thought as can been seen by a search here with reveal. As their indexer, I know that Taylor's important concepts are found thematic throughout Fr. Heft's works.
