Overview

Included in this exhaustive collection of documents from the twentieth-century ecumenical movement are significant passages from the most widely influential texts produced by assemblies, conferences, and studies of the World Council of Churches and similar bodies, covering the three broad areas of historic concern within modern ecumenism: faith and order, life and work, and mission and evangelism. Designed as a resource for courses in ecumenism in theological seminaries and faculties of religion, the volume can also serve as a useful reference guide. In addition to selections from the WCC and other global Christian bodies, the collection includes texts from various regions of the world.

From The Critics

"This anthology is useful as a resource for teaching, whether upper-level college courses, seminaries, congregations, or workshops, and an excellent reference tool for those involved in ecumenical efforts. Likely to become a standard work, this text inspires readers with a vision that holds the search for unity and the pursuit of justice, explicit witness to Christ, and renewal of creation, in appropriate tension.
A valuable reference tool for all engaged in common Christian witness and service.
"A "must" for all theological libraries and a necessary tool for all who study or teach the ecumenical movement or simply wish to understand where the churches are today-and why!" - Religious Studies Review
