Overview

Early in 2003 a group of sixteen theologians from various church traditions published In One Body through the Cross, a landmark statement on the present state and future possibilities of modern ecumenism. In order to help readers understand the true depth of that document, also known as "The Princeton Proposal," The Ecumenical Future makes available the scholarly studies that stand behind it. According to the editors of this timely volume, "the perception is widespread that the ecumenical train is stalling or has even run off the tracks." In spite of significant gains in understanding between Catholics, Orthodox, and various Protestant denominations, the church's present divisions are nothing less than a scandal. The fourteen essays in this book represent a focused examination of the issues that still divide and of the common ground still to be discovered.
