Endorsements & Reviews-

"This is the ultimate bedside book. Replete with sinuous, compact discussions of first and last things--sin, faith, grace, and John Henry Newman--it reflects Jaroslav Pelikan's lifelong commitment to what he calls 'the great new fact of Christianity' . . . This book works like a tuning fork for the mind. With it, the harmony of Pelikan's thought and life has itself become part of the great Christian tradition."
--Christian Science Monitor

"This is a rewarding and exciting book from beginning to end. It shows the reflection of a master of his work, where the work continually reveals the author's enjoyment, both exemplifying and satisfying Horatio's utile dulci. Packed with knowledge and insight, it informs, stimulates, and delights. It also corrects, or at least reproves, some vulgar errors . . . A valuable book."
--Roland M. Frye

"I found Pelikan's thinking fascinating, elegant, informative, scholarly, and deeply personal and attractive . . . There is always some insight to gain. [Pelikan's book] provides a course in nearly the whole of Christian faith and history--in terms of just one person's journey."
--Robert B. Coote, Pacific Theological Review

"Jaroslav Pelikan ranged so widely in his exploration of historic Christian traditions, and his work probed so deeply, that it is a real boon to see Wipf and Stock bringing some of his books back into print. They were excellent reading when they first appeared; they remain excellent reading today."
--Mark A. Noll, McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
