“This collection of essays by eleven noted scholars underlines the continued importance of Fides et Ratio and its affirmation that philosophy opens a way to faith and points beyond itself. This collection is an important contribution to an important debate.” —Catholic Library World
“This is a fascinating book with much to stimulate, ponder, and provoke . . . it gathers together the work of a number of scholars from varying backgrounds. Redeeming Truth: Considering Faith and Reason is on the whole a fine collection of articles.” —Irish Theological Quarterly
“The vigorous affirmation of the ability of human reason to reach the truth about God that is defended in Pope John Paul II’s encyclical Fides et ratio has provoked reactions of considerable variety in the philosophical and theological community. The present collection of essays reflects that range of responses, from deep appreciation to respectful disagreement. In short, the editors of this volume are to be commended for trying to bring about dialogue on the important topic of faith and reason.” —American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly
