A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2007 “This contribution to the Blackwell Companions in Religion series is an excellent addition. It is not intended as a tool to answer general questions about the Catholic church but will find a home on many academic and priestly shelves. It should also be found on the shelves of any library attempting to cover theology and religion, especially those in non-Roman Catholic traditions seeking to provide a comprehensive and competent resource for those carrying out serious research for either personal or academic purposes.” Reference Reviews "The editors have assembled veterans of the study of Catholicism from institutions worldwide to provide probably the best single-volume introduction to the subject currently available. Thirty-three topics are split among four sections: histories, cultures, doctrines, and practices. Necessarily the contributors have had to be very selective in covering their respective areas, but readers will come away knowing a great deal about the church, its history, and life. The writing is exceptionally clear and blessedly error-free ... Essential." CHOICE “The Companion aims for, and achieves, comprehensiveness: it is rare to find in one place so many snapshots of that vast, bordered but messily unfenced world we call Catholicism … learned, succinct and engaging.” The Way "This is a very useful collection for those who wish to broaden and deepen their understanding of Catholioism." Expository Times

The Blackwell Companion to Catholicism offers an extensive survey of the history, doctrine, practices, and global circumstances of Roman Catholicism, written by a range of distinguished and experienced Catholic writers. The essays are addressed to all those who wish to broaden and deepen their knowledge of Catholic life and thought. The Companion is divided into four accessible parts: Catholic Histories includes essays on major eras of the Catholic story, from Scriptures and the early Church through the Middle Ages and Reformation to Modernity and Post-Modernity Catholic Cultures describes Catholics in different lands – the Holy Land and India and Africa, Europe and the British Isles and Ireland, Latin America and North America, Asia and Oceania Catholic Doctrines has essays on central topics in the practice of Catholic theology and development of doctrine – God and Jesus Christ, creation and Church and Mary, sacraments and moral theology, and eschatology Catholic Practices surveys some of the central Catholic practices: spirituality and ecumenism, inter-religious dialog and Catholic institutions (schools, hospitals, and charitable organizations), art and the natural sciences, the Holy See. The result is a comprehensive and illuminating reference work, spanning the diversity and capturing the resonances of Roman Catholic life and thought.
