    Ursuline faculty publishes newest academic book.

    October 14, 2015

    Natalie Weaver, a professor in the religious studies department, has published her fourth academic book, titled Christian Thought and Practice: A Primer, Revised Edition.

    This textbook is an introduction to Christianity and all of its beliefs, tenets, and how they relate to ethics and science.

    The book has several positive reviews on Amazon, including this one from Ron Highfield, Professor of Religion at Pepperdine University:

    "In Christian Thought and Practice, Natalie Kertes Weaver provides undergraduate students with an excellent introduction to Christian theology and ecclesial life. It is ecumenically sensitive and pedagogically astute. It is concise but comprehensive. It strikes a fine balance between the descriptive and the normative styles. The questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, the tables, glossary, and other helps for the student make this book very student friendly. Only a master teacher could pack so much into such a small volume! As a professor who is always seeking but rarely finding the perfect introductory theology textbook, reading Christian Thought and Practice gave me a "eureka" ("I found it!") sensation. I recommend Weaver's book highly."
