Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Valuable to any English-speaking Catholic, young or old, British or American."--Commonweal

"This anthology is far too prolific to be properly considered an enchiridion in the sense of a pocket book, but it does serve a similar function in that it provides an instructive manual for reflecting on the Catholic experience. The editors have successfully addressed a lacuna within the literature on Catholic England that provides readers with a commendable and a comprehensive introduction into the spirituality of the English Catholic tradition."--Theological Studies
