“I have been forever changed…”

In “Take and Read,” a blog from National Catholic Reporter that features a different contributor’s reflections on a specific book that changed their lives, Canisius Professor James F. Keenan, S.J. shares his thoughts on Being as Communion: Studies in Personhood and the Church by Jean Zizioulas. Fr. Keenan took a course at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome taught by Zizioulas. In his essay, Fr. Keenan describes that though he and Zizioulas at the opposite ends of the spectrum of theology, Zizioulas’ writings let him imagine the vastness of theology and stimulate his imagination. Today, Fr. Keenan is director of the Jesuit Institute at BC and the University’s Gabelli Scholars Program.
