______________________________________________________________________

In the late 1980s a group of American and Canadian Jesuit scholars founded the John Paul II Jesuit Symposium. Its purpose is to sponsor scholarly discussion on the rich teaching of John Paul II. The Symposium is interdisciplinary, welcoming Jesuits from a variety of fields of inquiry: theology, philosophy, law, social science, physical science, fine arts, history, and literature. It is also pluralist in that it encourages debate on different interpretations of the meaning and pastoral implications of the pope's thought. The Symposium strives to place the scholarly resources of the Society of Jesus at the service of the papacy, which Jesuits have defended with particular fervor since their order's birth in the Catholic Reformation.

The major work of the Symposium has been the sponsorship of a biennial conference devoted to John Paul II's teaching. This volume is a collection of papers from two such conferences: that held in 1998 at Georgetown University on "Priesthood, Religion, and Culture in John Paul II," and the conference that took place in 2000 at Xavier University in Cincinnati on "Pope John Paul II on Faith, Culture, and the New Evangelization."

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

"A miscellaneous volume such as this is challenging to evaluate, […] some studies have a greater thematic interest than others and […] the questions treated are better formulated and analyzed by some authors more than others. But all can agree that this book should be considered as valuable contribution to understanding the dual theme of creed and culture in the thought of the recently deceased pope."

M. Sánchez, Communio (Spanish edition)

____________________

"Given the intellectual caliber of the authors of the essays in this volume, it is assured that this book will contribute to the knowledge of the thought of John Paul II on the relationship of faith and culture."

C. García, Revista Studium

____________________

"This book originates with a group of North American Jesuit scholars who founded the John Paul II Jesuit Symposium in the late 1980s. […] This collection is a thoughtful presentation of key aspects of the teaching of John Paul II, enhanced not just by the range of disciplines from which the participants come, but also by their different interpretations of the value and significance of his teaching. Published before the death of John Paul, it is a helpful contribution towards an assessment of his legacy."

Gerry O'Hanlon, S.J., The Way
