Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Jim Fodor and Frederick Christian Bauerschmidt have assembled a series of well-crafted and tightly reasoned essays . . . (they) have done us a great service by reminding us, once again, of Thomas Aquinas's enduring relevance to the religious conversation."
The Thomist

"Aquinas in Dialogue brings together some of the most eminent of modern theological exponents of Aquinas's thought to show how Aquinas engages with traditions other than his own: Lutheranism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, analytic philosophy, and atheism."
