Review Quotes




"What Makes Education Catholic is yet another masterpiece by Thomas Groome. Weaving together his mastery of storytelling and deep theological wisdom, Groome's impressive scholarship leads readers to understand not only what Catholic education is, but its value for our complex world." --Melodie Wyttenbach, PhD, Executive Director, Roche Center for Catholic Education, Boston College "Thomas Groome's What Makes Education Catholic is the most magisterial and comprehensive account we have today on the Catholic educational tradition. Groome writes with complete control of the intellectually demanding material and renders it accessible and enjoyable not just for educators, but for parents and the general public as well. This gem of a book belongs in every thinking person's library." --Dennis Shirley, Lynch School of Education and Human Development, Boston College
