David B. Burrell, C.S.C., is Theodore Hesburgh Professor in Philosophy and Theology at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of Friendship and Ways to Truth, also published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

“In his philosophically acute analyses, Burrell moves smoothly from tradition to tradition … in order to show how in all three traditions one can discuss creation and freedom and why this discussion will be mutually enlightening and corrective.” — The Journal of Religion

“Philosophical theology is not an easy subject, but in this book Burrell manages to make it as accessible as it will ever be. He himself controls the literature and language of all three traditions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—and he appends an index of key Arabic terms used.” — Journal of Ecumenical Studies

“Among the most gratifying of Burrell’s contributions here is his continuing insistence that we in our century take the relevant Jewish and Islamic sources and themes at least as seriously as Aquinas did in his.” — Theological Studies
