Towards Unity

Towards Unity

On the eve of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Towards Unity's timely collection of essays by prominent Catholic and Protestant ecumenists witnesses a hope for a future Christian unity born out of 50 years of honest and genuine dialogue. The authors have taken leading roles in the contemporary ecumenical work of seeking the unity of divided Christians, including work with the World Council of Churches. The essays will give the reader challenging insights into the progress of the ecumenical movement, as well as the problems encountered.
