Presbyterian History (Canada) November 2005 "The Handbook to Patristic Theology deserves to be on the shelf in every theological library in the country, and on the shelf of anyone who wishes [to] speak with accuracy about the Patristic period."
Curled Up with a Good Book (December 6, 2005) "[A] great A to Z reference tool."
Calvin Theological Journal (Vol. 40, No. 2, Nov. 2005) "McGuckin has again put patristic scholarship in his debt with the publication of this handbook." "[A]n outstanding contribution to patristic scholarship." --James R. Payton Jr.
Catholic Books Review (1/18/2006) "The text is crisply and charmingly written and demonstrates not only the extraordinary breadth of McGuckin's erudition, but also his infectious enthusiasm for his subject matter....Highly recommended!"
Ecclesiastical History (Vol. 56, No. 3, July 2005) "Given its range, this single volume should be included in any library but given its convenience and cost, students and scholars of patristics can fortunately have one within easy reach."
