"In one popular monograph series, Credo Perspectives, edited by Ruth Nanda Anshen, we find a score of books by famous men of our time -- physical scientists, art critics, a supreme court justice, a smattering of social scientists, and two popes -- all of them affirming and asserting with great vigor, revealing on every page that they have managed, in a time of 'universal doubt,' to find reasons for faith and action."

-- Wayne C. Booth, Modern Dogma and the Rhetoric of Assent, University of Chicago Press, 1974, p. x.
