Editorial Reviews


I have been an admirer of Father Matthew Lamb for many years. [W]hat I respect most deeply in the man are the simple qualities of his love for Jesus Christ, his obedience to the mind and heart of the Church as a scholar, and his gratitude for his own priesthood. It is a privilege to call him my friend. --Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, OFM, Cap., Archbishop of Denver

How completely appropriate that Matthew Lamb's seventieth birthday party should be an intellectual feast, celebrating many facets of Christian wisdom. A wonderful tribute to a wonderful man, in aid of a great cause to which Father Lamb has devoted his professional life: the renewal of Catholic theology within the Catholic university. --George Weigel, Senior Fellow, Ethics and Public Policy Center

Peter Cantor in his "Verbum abbreviatum" listed the entrusted duties of Masters of Sacred Scripture: to read, to dispute, to preach. To read is to comment on the Sacred Text; to dispute is to provide suitable answers with supporting arguments for difficult doctrinal questions; to preach is to bring the glad tidings of God s love to the minds and hearts of the hungry. Fr. Matt Lamb has richly fulfilled these duties throughout a lifetime of teaching and preaching. In doing so, he has inspired the essays dedicated to him in this volume. They imitate and honor his lifelong pursuit of wisdom and holiness, science and scholarship. --Stephen F. Brown, Institute of Philosophy & Theology
