At the 2017 Dies Academicus, Fr Gustavo Cavagnari SDB, President & Principal of Studium Theologicum Salesianum, announced the release of Christian Muslim Dialogue: Festschrift in Honour of Prof. Pier Giorgio Gianazza SDB by STS Publications.

The following is taken from the back cover description of the book:

Christian-Muslim Dialogue: Festschrift in Honour of Prof. Pier Giorgio Gianazza SDB treats the very important theme of inter-religious dialogue between Christians and Muslims, the two most populous religions in the world today.  Without openness to dialogue and mutual respect among these religions, world peace is impossible.

The book is published in honour of Professor Emeritus Rev. Fr Pier Giorgio Gianazza who has embodied in his academic career qualities essential for dialogue, such as, deep faith, charity, respect, knowledge of the faith and love for the common good.

True dialogue requires in addition to qualities of the heart, suitable training through serious and extensive study of one’s own faith and those of others.  Chapters written by highly respected Christian and Muslim authors enrich this book with perspectives from both faith communities.

Contributors include Abu Sway Mustafa, Al-Hafi Amer, Aveline Jean-Marc, Fitzgerald Michael, Gianazza Gianmaria, Houshmand Shahrzad, Hussain Amir, John Bosco Vincent Raj, Khoury Rafiq, Lahham Maroun, Lemarié Paul, Michael Biju, and Mokrani Adnane.
