Description: Father Gerard Sloyan's length of service -- and its quality -- to the Church and the academic community has earned him the respect of colleagues in diverse fields. Known largely for his substantial scholarship (sharpened by pastoral, ecumenical, and catechetical concerns), Sloyan possesses a biblical, theological, liturgical, and historical competence that makes what he has written for the Church so trustworthy and wise.

Open Catholicism, a collection of essays honoring Father Sloyan by his colleagues, friends, and former students, probes the most crucial concepts in the Catholic tradition: God, Jesus and the Gospel, Church, ethics, liturgy, religious education, Catholic-Muslim relations, and the notion of Catholicism itself. This Festschrift includes a brief "intellectual autobiography" by Father Sloyan, as well as a bibliography of his books, articles, and reviews published during the last forty-five years. It also speaks of his significant contribution to Vatican II.

Catholic professionals, college professors, liturgists, theologians, and religious educators will find that these essays, written expressly for this volume, reflect the "open" Catholicism which Father Sloyan has lived, taught, and sought over the years.

Articles and their contributors include "I Was There When Some of It Happened", by Gerard S. Sloyan; "On Rescuing the Humanity of Jesus: Implications for Catholicism", by Monika K. Hellwig; "Veritatis splendor and Contemporary Catholic Moral Theology", by Charles E. Curran; and "Pope John Paul II on Islam", by Mahmoud Ayoub.
