Due to growing interest in ecumenism, dialogue among Christian churches has grown in the last 50 years. This one-of-a-kind book offers selections from ecumenical dialogues formally sponsored by the Catholic Church arranged according to the order of the Cathechism of the Catholic Church; readers can learn what the Catholic Church believes and what other Christian churches believe on the same topic gathered together. The volume of selections beings with a chapter on Catholic ecumenical principles, and a chapter on the churches involved in the dialogue. Following these introductory chapters are seven chapters on agreements in faith, sacraments, the Christian life, and spirituality following the four parts of the Catechism. Throughout the seven final chapters are editor's notes to help the reader understand the context of the dialogues, the pertinent issues involved, and the significance of what has been addressed, all in clear, easy-to-understand language.
