Overview

This book illustrates the characteristic contribution of Methodism to ecumenical dialogue—the combination of doctrinal responsibility, spiritual engagement, missionary orientation, and the glorification of the Trinitarian God—and ends with a plea that in the face of contemporary challenges, Methodists will be Wesleyan enough to keep walking with historic Christianity. The book includes dialogue between Methodism and Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, the Reformed Church, Orthodoxy, ecumenism, and several multilateral movements.
