Publisher's Weekly Review

Two millennia of Catholic thought are distilled in Teresa de Bertodano's graceful compendium, The Book of Catholic Wisdom: 2,000 Years of Spiritual Writing. Bertodano perceptively arranged the volume's quotes and prayers according to theme, with chapters on marriage, prayer, the sacraments and other topics. Within each chapter the entries occur chronologically, beginning with the Early Fathers and culminating with recent thinkers such as Fulton Sheen, Henri Nouwen and Joseph Bernardin. This is a vivid, reflective sourcebook of Catholic thought. ( Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
