Dangers of stock-take no.2: ghosts of Christmas (cards) past in the basement
Author(s): Gerald O'Collins, SJ
this is an excellent and voluminously learned work from a true servant of the church and its theological task. There is much to enjoy in his book, much to be gained from it, and much within it on which to reflect further. Peter Groves, Expository Times a very fine text that should be welcomed by teachers, scholars, and students of all kinds...outstanding and impressive. Alan Padgett, Theological Studies a superb account of fundamental theology that examines most of the major questions in a clear and convincing way that will appeal to non-Catholics as well as Catholics. Paul Richardson, Church of England Newspaper
