Product Description

Introduction to Ecumenism surveys the theological basis and development of the gospel impulse toward Christian unity, primarily, though not exclusively, from a Roman Catholic perspective. Topics include: "History of Ecumenism," "Ecumenical Documents," "Theology of Ecumenism," "Ecumenical Principles," "The Churches Today," and more. "A user-friendly guide to the ecumenical struggle. More than a mere survey of historical texts, this study presents a theological and spiritual rationale for ecumenism as a gospel imperative! Seminary students and professors, local church leaders and their flocks - all will find this book indispensable as they too enter into the search for Christian unity." --Paul Meyendorff.

Publisher's Description

Here is a comprehensive introduction to the spirituality and theology of the ecumenical movement as a whole, with an emphasis on the place of the Catholic Church, particularly the Catholic Church in the United States, within it. It surveys the issues that the churches have considered serious enough to separate over, and the development in recent times of methods for healing those divisions.

Included is a review of key Catholic and World Council of Churches documents on ecumenism, as well as specific relationships among churches: Orthodox; Anglican; Lutheran; Methodist; Presbyterian and Reformed Disciples of Christ; Evangelical; Southern Baptist; and Pentecostal partners. A concluding chapter draws together some of the priorities for the proximate future of the ecumenical movement.

This one-volume introductory text acquaints seminary and university students, as well as religious professionals, with the history, development and organization of ecumenical relationships between the several Christian churches, in a concise and comprehensible manner.
