Praise for Robin Ryan
“For years Robin Ryan has written and taught about Jesus Christ with great clarity, deep insight, and a pastoral heart. He places the treasures of tradition in touch with contemporary questions. Listening to him will reward the hearer with beautiful, challenging understandings of their own.” – Elizabeth A. Johnson, CSJ, Distinguished Professor of Theology, Fordham University
“Robin Ryan is not only a careful and thoughtful scholar. He is a master teacher who makes crystal clear how the Bible and the tradition understand and profess Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ. Perhaps even more important, however, he is a person of faith who will inspire those who encounter him in this series to deeper faith in and commitment to Jesus themselves.” – Stephen Bevans, SVD, Catholic Theological Union
“Fr. Robin Ryan’s astute insights and pastoral sensibilities are clearly evident. Always with a hint of humor, Fr. Ryan brings his training as a systematic theologian and the charism of his Passionist community into conversations that matter.” – Sr. Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D., Catholic Theological Union
