Editorial Reviews

"Once again, the Ecumenical Patriarch has let us catch a glimpse of the breadth and depth of his ecumenical vision in this insightful volume of his teachings, which also includes many of his more recent addresses and homilies. In his tireless journeys across the globe, Patriarch Bartholomew has been a constant and courageous champion of Jesus' call to Unity. That call is echoed constantly and with great eloquence in this collection, which I wholeheartedly recommend to all Christians seeking to know and to follow the message of the Lord."
