John F. O'Grady, a priest of the diocese of Albany, NY, is professor of biblical theology at Barry University, Miami Shores, FL. His last book for Paulist Press™ was According to John: The Witness of the Beloved Disciple.From Library Journal:
This is an accessible and well-written book that reviews the richness of Catholic theology and practice. Primarily for undergraduate students investigating theological concepts, it will also be helpful to lay Catholic adults wanting to expand their religious understanding. O'Grady, a Catholic priest, respected teacher, and experienced writer (The Roman Catholic Church), divides his latest work into three major sections: "God in Catholic Traditions," "The Roman Catholic Church," and "Catholic Life." His considerations of such topics as Catholic morality are heavily grounded in Scripture, mindful of the reality of mystery, and respectful of ecclesiastical plurality. Each of the 15 chapters concludes with a "Topics for Discussion and Study" section that makes the text excellent for faith-sharing groups. A works-consulted page and an extensive bibliography complete this overview, which bears the official Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur, indicating that the text is free of doctrinal or moral error. Recommended for large public libraries. John-Leonard Berg, Univ. of Wisconsin Lib., Platteville
