Hey, thanks. I’d wanted to peruse Mazza’s book since discovering it my reading on Luke 24 last year. Now I will…

I picked up an old battered copy of Halton’s book at a used book sale. The original book store sticker was still on it. It sold for 12.95$. In it the patristic texts are related to the teaching of Vatican II’s document Lumen Gentium.

Are you familiar with *Doctors Of The Church: Thirty-Three Men and Women Who Shaped Christianity* by Bernard McGinn (Crossroads Publishing, 1999)?

I picked this up at a university library the other night. Looks like a good succinct intro to the Doctors.

By the way, nice blog as well.
