    Abstract:
    McGinn is a well known name in Roman Catholic circles and deservedly so. His multi-volumes' history of Christianity is THE standard work in his field. But as far as this more concentrated book is concerned, the review shows how he should have been more careful in locating the ontologies of both Karl Rahner and Bernard Lonergan. The book under review does not do credit to the genius of McGinn and to the Summa.
