Bibliographic information


"This volume serves as a reference point and model by which any new documents could be related to this collection, and would probably be cited as such a reference point in future years. Because there is no comparable book to this volume, it will remain the 'go-to' base for anyone who wants a brief but professional introduction to the local Roman Catholic response to some pressing Caribbean issues in the last part of the twentieth century and early years of the new millennium." - Fr. Paul Zilonka, C.P., The Passionists

"This text is essentially a secondary reference that will help scholars as well as pastoral ministers sharpen their exegesis of the actual pastoral letters themselves and provoke new directions for scholarly research and homiletics." - John Francis Burke, Cabrini College, USA
