it was amazing

This book could be the single (or primary) textbook for a course on modern Catholic intellectuals. It covers, theology, scriptural studies, philosophy, poetry, prose, and historiography of the great Catholic minds of the 20th Century.

It's a very large book, both in page number and content. It took a long time to read but it is worth it. It provided me with at least a dozen "Want to Read" books on GoodReads.

Gregory Weber It's large, as you say; sweeping and broad. I could see this as the primary textbook for such a course, but not the only one: students in such a course need to read from primary sources as well.
