Included in this exhaustive collection of documents from the twentieth-century ecumenical movement are significant passages from the most widely influential texts produced by assemblies, conferences, and studies of the World Council of Churches and similar bodies, covering the three broad areas of historic concern within modern ecumenism: faith and order, life and work, and mission and evangelism. Designed as a resource for courses in ecumenism in theological seminaries and faculties of religion, the volume can also serve as a useful reference guide. In addition to selections from the WCC and other global Christian bodies, the collection includes texts from various regions of the world.
