A helpful and necessary step in establishing a set of scholarship tofurther the discussion which also displays the lack of consensus amongscholars and disciplines about what constitutes 'Catholic Studies.'-Paula M. Kane
"In addition to serving as a launch pad for a new series called Catholic Practice in North America, The Catholic Studies Reader is a rare book in an emerging field that has neither a documented history nor a consensus as to what should be a normative methodology." -American Catholic Studies Newsletter
