Australian-born Gerald O'Collins, SJ, AC, took his PhD at the University of Cambridge and taught at the Gregorian University (Rome) from 1973 to 2006, where he was also Dean of the Faculty of Theology (1985-91). He has written or co-written sixty published books (including Rethinking Fundamental Theology, Jesus Our Priest, and Salvation for All), authored hundreds of articles in professional and popular journals, and lectured at many universities and colleges in the UK, Ireland, USA, India, New Zealand, his native Australia, and elsewhere. As well as receiving numerous doctorates and other honorary awards, in 2006 he was created a Companion of the General Division of the Order of Australia (AC), the highest civil honour granted through the Australian government.
This is a readable and highly informative survey of a wide range of
material ... this is overall a masterful discussion by an
experienced interpreter * Leo D. Lefebure, The Journal of Religion
We should be grateful for O'Collins' courage and scholarship. This book should be used in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as by all scholars interested in this important debate [on other religions] * James Heft, Theological Studies *
