Capuchin Father Thomas Weinandy, the U.S. bishops’ chief doctrinal official, is in town to speak to catechetical leaders in our diocese. I had the great honor and pleasure of his company at dinner. Among Father Tom’s many great books is The Theology of St. Cyril of Alexandria: A Critical Appreciation. That’s my personal favorite. Much more affordable, though, is Jesus the Christ. For many years, he was at Oxford, directing great dissertations like this one. It’s good to have him back home in the States.
