Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
«This volume is welcome on several scores. It illustrates how rich and diverse is the concept of freedom from a Christian perspective. Scripture, liturgy, doctrine, ethics, church history and the human dynamics of the church's life all play a part in defining what the gospel value of freedom means.» (Donald Senior, Catholic Theological Union)
«This book should be useful in helping students examine the pervasive implications of Christian Freedom.» (John T. Ford, Religious Studies Review)
