Praise for The Church in the 21st Century series:

"These highly interesting essays, written by so many articulate and passionately committed persons, are timely, informative, and a joy to read. The central issues of these volumes are of such critical importance for the Church today that one can only pray that these studies will trigger further sustained conversation, and God willing, serve as a catalyst for real action."
-Lawrence S. Cunningham, John A. O'Brien Professor of Theology, The University of Notre Dame
