"Catholicism and Science is an outstanding reference resource. It is authoritative and mostly free from bias. The entries are well written, with enough detail for deeper understanding yet not overwhelming as many works on theology, philosophy, and science can be. The illustrations are appropriate, and each entry has a list of works cited for further research. The index is useful for locating information quickly, and the extensive bibliography provides even more suggestions for further research. It is highly recommended for academic libraries supporting theology, science, and philosophy programs. Larger public libraries might also find it useful." - ARBA
