"This book gives due honor to Ralph del Colle, whose untimely death neither obstructs the timeliness of his reflections on Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the Trinity, nor veils the ecclesial spirit that animated his thought and person. . . . These wise contributions demonstrate the gifts he gave were rich, fertile, and enduring."
--Cyril O'Regan, University of Notre Dame
"Some of the theological world's key figures--across a broad ecumenical field--come together to offer a real theological feast. The variety of topics covered, as well as the originality and depth of the treatments offered, witness to the importance of the conversations Ralph del Colle inspired."
--Lewis Ayres, Durham University
"Those who long for substantive theological reflection will be edified and inspired by the craft manifest herein--a fitting and lasting legacy for this theologian of the church whose short time with us will nevertheless cast a long and brilliant shadow."
--Amos Yong, Regent University School of Divinity
"The theologian whose untimely death elicited such an intellectually engaging and spiritually moving tribute by an ecumenical gathering of colleagues and collaborators must have indeed been a remarkable Christian, theologian, and friend. The comprehensive breadth of theological topics discussed and the impressive spectrum of contributors give persuasive witness to Ralph del Colle's unique contribution as a theologian."
--Reinhard Hutter, Duke University Divinity School
"This book is a delectable collection of articles by today's best living theologians. Packed with tight and beautifully composed arguments, this book is a treat to devour. . . . This enduringly valuable collection is a fitting tribute to the genius of Ralph del Colle."
--Francesca Murphy, University of Notre Dame
