Books to Buy

Students are not required to buy these texts, but they are responsible for having a copy for their sole use during the course. The Library provides a book exchange for students to pass on books they no longer need to other students, and is located in the library office. Please consider donating gently used textbooks. Identify any book to be dropped off for the swap so that they can be marked. Donation to the swap is not necessary to take books from it.

  • Pope St. John Paul II
    Fides et ratio: On the relationship between faith and reason
    Pauline Books and Media
    Instructor Comment: I will be using the Boston: Pauline Books and Media, 1998. Seminarians need not use the text by this publisher, but seminarians may do otherwise.

Recommended Texts

Recommended texts are those from which not enough reading assignments are drawn to warrant asking students to provide their own copies or those that instructors think will enhance a student’s appreciation of the subject matter of the course. Any reading assignments drawn from these texts will be available on reserve.
