5.0 out of 5 stars a treasure, 30 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Great Christian Thinkers: From the Early Church through the Middle Ages (Paperback)
This collection of the Pope's talks covers some 70 very different people who over the first 1500 years of the Catholic faith influenced te development of Christian thought and practice. Each talk is quite short (they can read in 10 minutes or an hour depending on the reader's approach ), full of facts and often expressed with great eloquence. They can provide either a source of meditation or a springboard to further study of each person's most significant work. They would also provide a most helpful basis for study groups.
A very valuable contribution the Church's life

It would have been useful if you had included the names of all, or at least some of the people His Holiness writes about.

Why don't you just "Click to Look Inside" and read the Table of Contents where all the "names" talked about are listed? No doubt the reveiwer, not unreasonably, assumed readers would do this? There are the two Clements, Ignatius, Ireneaus, Origen, Cyril, Athanasius, Basil, two Gregorys, two Eusebiuses, Jerome, Augustine, Bede, Anselm, Hildegard, Bernard, Francis, Clare, Dominic, Aquinas, Duns Scotus, Catherine and Julian ... to name but a few! :) I may well buy the book myself!
