It is "truly meet and right" that the members of the North American Orthodox-Roman Catholic Theological Consultation now come to honor His Eminence Metropolitan Maximos-- not only because of his profound piety and theological wisdom but also because of his substantial and diverse contributions to the Consultation as well as to the broader ecumenical movement.
-Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew

From the time he became a member of the Consultation, Metropolitan Maximos was a faithful and significant participant ... His work reflects his conviction that the Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church are "sister churches" and the the division between them can and must be healed through prayer, theological dialogue, and common witness. Metropolitan Maximos has left an indelible mark upon the Orthodox-Catholic Theological Consultation.

-Metropolitan Methodios of Boston
Orthodox Cochairman, North American Orthodox-Catholic Theological Consultation

Metropolitan Maximos made a vast contribution to the Orthodox-Catholic Theological Consultation in North America. Not only did he present many scholarly papers at the meetings and offer his sage advice on many issues, but he also helped to create a climate of trust and genuine affection among the members. That contribution lives on in the meetings of the Consultation years after he retired from it. The publication of this volume in his honor is most welcome and is a fitting tribute to his many efforts to overcome the division between our churches.
