QuotationFirst of all, I am very grateful for the new books. I have started immediately on [Michael] Serafian and find it brilliant, more exciting than anything I have read on the Council because it not only informs but interprets in depth. And I think he is very sound and judicious; he strikes me as being always on target and usually on the bull's eye. It is every bit als good as [Hans] Küng's first book (I haven't read the others).
