“These two collections of essays by a variety of educators, scholars, and theologians lay out some of the content behind the term Catholic intellectual tradition, a tradition that is both a treasury of classic and contemporary texts, including religious and aesthetic products, and a ‘way of doing things’ borne of experience, prayer, and critical reflection.”

“In our society, with its pandemic of substance and behavioral addictions, such a multidiscipline, interfaith volume will bring the gift of valuable insights to both religious and secular counselors, as well as to theoreticians of the addiction process.

“This is an amazingly comprehensive, in-depth treatment of a long-neglected and superficially treated topic. It does the unusual – truly considering theological and biblical issues – while not slighting clinical, therapeutic, or scientific perspectives. It should become standard reading in this new field of addiction and spirituality.”
