Mike Aquilina

Review the Reviews

Saturday July 14th 2007, 3:04 am

Touchstone magazine has archived a number of my book reviews, some related to the Fathers, some not. (Just search on “Aquilina.” I’m the only Aquilina in the database.) There’s…

my review of Fr. Mark Gruber’s Journey Back to Eden: My Life and Times Among the Desert Fathers;

my review of J.A. McGuckin’s St. Cyril of Alexandria: The Christological Controversy: Its History, Theology, and Texts;

my review of Fr. Robert Taft’s Through Their Own Eyes: Liturgy as the Byzantines Saw It;

my double-decker review of Adrian Murdoch’s The Last Pagan: Julian the Apostate and the Death of the Ancient World and The Last Roman: Romulus Augustulus and the Decline of the West;

and my triple-decker review of J. Budziszewski’s Ask Me Anything: Provocative Answers for College Students, John Waiss’s Couples in Love: Straight Talk on Dating, Respect, Commitment, Marriage, and Sexuality and Father Thomas Morrow’s Christian Courtship In An Oversexed World.

Touchstone runs several of my short reviews every month and usually one of my long reviews as well. They don’t even post half of them on the website. So please consider a subscription!
