Abstract:

During more than a half century at the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Ralph McInerny's legendary achievements include writing more than 50 nonfiction books in philosophy, medieval studies, and theology, as well as more than 90 novels, including the Father Dowling Murder Mystery series. This volume offers personal reflections on the man himself and what he meant to so many over his rich life of teaching, writing, and contributing to the life of the mind.

Alasdair MacIntyre, Cardinal Francis George, Ralph's brother D.Q. McInerny, Michael Novak, John Haldane, Joseph Bottum, Thomas De Konick, Jude P. Dougherty, Gerard V. Bradley, Fr. Marvin O'Connell, and many others (see below) aim to capture some of the ̀more' that was McInerny, a more that cannot be captured by any curriculum vitae, even one as impressive as Ralph's. The stories, anecdotes, and reflections in this volume give us various snapshots of the man that cannot be found in news accounts, press releases, or academic evaluations. A person as great as Ralph should not live merely in memory, so some record such as this volume written his friends, colleagues, and former students becomes appropriate.

Also included is a full list of all the books - fiction and non-fiction - authored by McInerny as well as enumeration of his forty-eight doctoral students and their dissertations completed under his direction. Finally, the collection is rounded out by five contributions by McInerny himself: a poem about his late wife Connie, a scholarly article "Why I Am a Thomist," a popular essay, "Mementoes Never Die," an early Roger Knight mystery entitled "Dust Abhors a Vacuum," as well as his last written words.

All publisher proceeds for O Rare Ralph McInerny will be donated to the Women's Care Center of St. Joseph County, Indiana. --Book Jacket.
