Faithful Shepherds and the Promotion of Lay Doctrinal Literacy
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"A terrific and vital book! Justin McClain presents the teachings of the Catholic bishops in stunning fashion. Every earnest reader will be equipped to follow Jesus, and lead others to do the same."
--Shaun McAfee, OP, author of Filling Our Father's House
"McClain has done it again! As a theologian and Catholic school teacher, Justin's love for the Church, graceful writing, and his ability to tell the story informs, inspires, and calls the Catholic laity to deepen our understanding, respect, and gratitude for the work of the shepherds of the Church: Catholic bishops. Through an exploration of a variety of important doctrinal themes, Justin sheds light on the courageous and heroic leadership that Catholic bishops have provided for the past two thousand years."
--Marco J. Clark, President/CEO, Bishop McNamara High School, Forestville, Maryland
"Our Bishops, Heroes for the New Evangelization is the fruit of intrigue with the idea that bishops are part of a continuous line of shepherds extending all the way back to Jesus' apostles. . . . All who wish to understand, through the eyes of Christ's shepherds, the roles that Christians are to play will be grateful for the guidance provided by Justin McClain's readable, insightful, and inspiring survey."
--Gregory Glazov, Professor of Biblical Studies, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, Seton Hall University
"An excellent exposition of various Catholic bishops' wisdom on diverse topics from ecology to sacred tradition to marriage. This work is much needed for regaining the sense of the office of the bishop as the source of unity for the church, especially through the bishop's teaching authority. I encourage everyone to give it a read today and discover why bishops are truly heroes for our generation!"
--Daniel Meola, Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family, Washington, DC
