". . . He not only had the reputation of being a great theologian, but he could present his arguments and his deepest thoughts with an extraordinary clarity and forcefulness."-Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, Archbishop Emeritus of Washington, D.C., from his Foreword
"Perhaps no one knows Cardinal Dulles better than Dr. Anne Marie Kirmse, O.P. Cardinal Dulles left her the task of publishing his extensive bibliography, which is included in this text. The bibliography alone is worth the price of the book, which should be in all libraries in the country."-Patrick Carey, Marquette University
"In this companion volume to Church and Society, the editors have provided the great service of presenting the most comprehensive bibliographical guide available to the breadth and richness of the thought of Avery Cardinal Dulles. What is more, the volume offers indispensible sources of insight into his final days, bearing witness to a man whose thinking bore fruit in life and in death, a very good fruit born of a lifelong unity of purpose and desire to be conformed to Life Itself given in the Person of Christ, the True Head of the Church and the whole of the human family. One could not imagine a more fitting memorial to the life of this exemplary Jesuit priest and traveler on the Way charted for us by the Lord Jesus."-Gary Culpepper, Providence College
"This collection of bibliography, homilies and reflections on Avery Dulles fills out the extraordinary legacy of American Catholicism's most accomplished theologian. It also reminds admirers of the Cardinal's work that the vocation to theology can be a path of holiness and highest intellectual rigor."-Father James Massa, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
