Reviews and Awards
"Contains a remarkably succinct and explicit statement of [Taylor's] most basic religious commitments, responses by fellow Catholic scholars, and Taylor's concluding reflections and comments."--Commonweal
"A very little but very important book....Taylor's lecture and the discussion surrounding it offer an occasion of rare grace and lucidity in trying to understand how to be Christian in a culture whose intellectual elites have, for the most part, decided that Christianity is either irrelevant or threatening."--First Things
"Each of the book's eleven chapters is widely informed, and Heft has a gift for articulately summarizing and sharing the literature he reviews... I was impressed andw by this book which deserves a readership wider than its title implies... This book is highly recommended for all libraries." --American Catholic Studies
