Richard John Neuhaus in First Things (March 2007)
on Fideles Volume 1
“I’d like to see Fideles recognized as a sort of First Things North, because TWU and RPC have an ecumenical partnership that is totally unique.” So says Prof. C.S. Morrissey of Redeemer Pacific College, a Catholic school that is cooperating closely with the evangelical Trinity Western University, both in British Columbia. Fideles is described as “a Catholic and Evangelical journal of metaphysics and theology,” and the first issue, handsomely produced, includes articles on the mysticism of C.S. Lewis, the meta-science of metaphysics, and the theological uses of the analogy of being. For more information check out their website:
