As a young member of the Missionaries of Africa, Fitzgerald opted to focus on the study of Islam, which took him into a life of teaching at PISAI, promoting inter-faith dialogue through the PCID, and periods of practical engagement around the world. Attention is drawn to the work of Robert Caspar, the ecumenical nature of Christian-Muslim relations through partnership with the WCC, and the seminal contribution of Roman documents like Dialogue and Mission. A host of practical examples are offered for reflection: teaching Muslims about Islam as a Catholic priest, how to articulate Christianity to Muslims, and ways to support Christian practitioners in the sometimes isolated work of dialogue. Many years of experience are shared concerning the right atmosphere to discuss deeper mysteries and the need to distinguish the understandable desire for the conversion of another from the explicit invitation so to do.
