  • Knowing the Natural Law - "Breathes new life into the traditional approach to Thomistic ethics." - Michael V. Dougherty, Ohio Dominican University
  • Hagar's Vocation - "Functions as a basic guide to Fishacre and gives researchers an important introduction to understanding his relationship to later thinkers." - Eileen Sweeney, Boston College
  • Deeds of the Saxons - An indispensable account for the history of the German kingdom during the tenth century.                  
  • A Trinitarian Anthropology- "Adrienne von Speyr, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Thomas Aquinas: an unlikely trio. Michele Schumacher succeeds in highlighting the harmony of their tune." - Father Jean-Pierre Torrell
  • Plague and Pleasure - A lively popular history that introduces a new hypothesis about the impetus behind the cultural change in Renaissance Italy.
  • Cosmas of Prague - "Brings an important medieval, central European historian to the attention of an English-speaking public." - Jeff Rider
  • The Personalism of John Henry Newman - "A powerful witness to the influence of Newman's character, teaching and preaching on those who experienced it. Crosby's major contribution is the way that he relates Newman's personalism to his theocentrism. No other writer has brought out this link so well." -John Sullivan
  • Pope John Paul II Speaks on Wome“This work is absolutely indispensable for anyone interested in understanding the Catholic ontology and affirmation of the feminine as expounded by John Paul II." - Prof. Tracey Rowland
