There is now a new phase in the search for unity in the Church. For thirty years pioneering conversations have put forward solutions to old disagreements and are beginning to build a new ecumenical theology. But when it comes to taking actual steps toward unity there is often a drawing-back from the final commitment. G. R. Evans examines the methodology of ecumenical theology and the way it is being taken into the lives of the churches. By making judicious use of interdenominational archival material and secondary literature, the author provides a timely resource for all those interested in recent ecumenical progress.
