It must be stressed that Transforming Ourselves, Transforming the World: Justice in Jesuit Higher Education is one of a few books that approaches social justice in such an informative, honest, and mission-centered fashion. * -Journal of Catholic Education * It is refreshing to see that these essays are attentive to some of the deeper matters that pertain to the education of the whole person; the deliberate on what is required and necessary for such an education. -- Mario O. D'Souza, University of Toronto * -Journal of Jesuit Studies 2 * Each contributor to this volume has much to say that is important, interesting, and helpful, especially for those searching for how they themselves might proceed. The point of reference is obviously Jesuit schools, but the content can be helpful and usable for anyone working on justice issues. Editors Combs and Schmidt illustrate the importance of faculty taking the lead in pursuing a faith that does justice on campus. * -Charles L. Currie, S.J.,American Catholic Studies *
