Product Description

In The Witness of Bartholomew I several theologians from different Christian traditions examine how Bartholomew I as Ecumenical Patriarch has influenced the contemporary European scene, the various dialogues between Orthodox churches and Reformed and Roman Catholic churches, the ongoing work of the World Council of Churches, and the modern ecumenical movement.

These essays, largely from non-Orthodox authors, paint a portrait of the Ecumenical Patriarch that has been often overlooked in Western circles - as a deeply Orthodox leader who wishes to relate Orthodoxy to the modern world and to have it make its contribution to the unity of Christians.

Endorsements

A fitting tribute to one of the most independent and creative church leaders in our age, who has done so much to renew our vision of the human calling in the context of the material creation.
-Rowan Williams
University of Cambridge

This volume of essays from different perspectives across the ecclesiastical spectrum admirably captures the remarkable significance and accomplishments, as well as the breadth, wisdom, and even spirituality of the present Ecumenical Patriarch. The vision and profundity of thought depicted in these seven chapters offer a model for leaders of other churches that is sorely needed in many quarters today.
-J. Robert Wright
General Theological Seminary

This book provides fascinating insights into the mind and priorities of this Ecumenical Patriarch, one of the leading churchmen of our times...A pleasure to read.
