And how does their work as scholars influence their lives as people of faith?For more than a generation, the University of Dayton has invited a prominent Catholic intellectual to present the annual Marianist Award Lecture on the general theme of the encounter of faith and profession.

Over the years, the lectures have become central to the Catholic conversation about church, culture, and society.In this book, ten leading figures explore the connections in their own lives between the private realms of faith and their public calling as teachers, scholars, and intellectuals.This last decade of Marianist Lectures brings together theologians and philosophers, historians, anthropologists, academic scholars, and lay intellectuals and critics.Here are Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., on the tensions between faith and theology in his career- Jill Ker Conway on the spiritual dimensions of memory and personal narrative- Mary Ann Glendon on the roots of human rights in Catholic social teaching- Mary Douglas on the fruitful dialogue between religion and anthropology in her own life- Peter Steinfels on what it really means to be a aliberal Catholica- and Margaret OaBrien Steinfels on the complicated history of women in todayas church.

From Charles Taylor and David Tracy on the fractured relationship between Catholicism and modernity to Gustavo GutiA(c)rrez on the enduring call of the poor and Marcia Colish on the historic links between the church and intellectual freedom, these essays track a decade of provocative, illuminating, and essential thought. James L. Heft, S.M., is President and Founding Director of the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies and University Professor of Faith and Culture and Chancellor, University of Dayton. He has edited Beyond Violence: Religious Sources for Social Transformation in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (Fordham).
