Paths to Unity: Explorations in Ecumenical Method
At a time of uncertainty in the quest for Christian unity, this book takes a critical look at the goals, motives and methods of ecumenical dialogue. Key Anglican ecumenists probe such issues as: Do we need to rethink ecumenical theology? Why is it important for unity to be visible? How should we use the Bible in theological dialogue? What are the implications of taking the diversity of traditions more seriously? How do unity and mission connect? Why are bishops important to Church unity? Members of the Church of England's Faith and Order Advisory Group re-appraise ecumenical dialogue, identify key challenges and chart a course for the future.
