Product Description

During the mid-twentieth century, as the ecumenical movement reached its zenith in the formation of the World Council of Churches and the Second Vatican Council, interdenominational dialogue led to a deepening of spiritual life for many Christians. Now, however, the once-celebrated movement has stagnated. Each church body has again retreated into the shell of its own tradition and identity, with little cooperation between them.

Unity of the Church in the New Testament and Today Lukas Vischer, Ulrich Luz, and Christian Link remind us that God in Christ longs to create a community of believers united in love and faith - and that even a brief look into the New Testament underscores God's strong desire for peace and fellowship throughout the church.

Looking first at the conflicts that hinder unity, the book offers a Bible-centered discussion on various "flash points of unity" - the authority of Scripture, the various church confessions, the Lord's Supper, and the ministerial office - reflecting on early Christian struggles for unity and drawing biblical conclusions for the life of the church today. The authors show decisively that in the context of New Testament teaching, unity must be an ongoing, never-ending task of the church.

Unity of the Church in the New Testament and Today crystallizes a series of conversations between Protestant and Roman Catholic scholars in Switzerland. Originally published fifteen years ago, these ever-timely discussions are now available for the first time in English.
