This standard reference work is indispensable for students and scholars, church leaders and pastors. For anyone involved and interested in the issues, history and events of the ecumenical movement, the dictionary provides a wealth of up-to-date information available in no other single source. The 700 entries have been written by some 370 leading figures in the ecumenical movement from every Christian confession and all parts of the world. Entries cover the areas of faith and order, dialogue, mission and evangelism, communication, church and society, moral theology, theological education, institutional histories, relations of Orthodox, Protestants and Catholics within the ecumenical movement, and ecumenism in the regions. Biographical sketches outline the contributions of some of the individuals who have furthered the cause of ecumenism in the 20th century. Cross references direct the reader to more detailed information or to matters of related interest, and the bibliographical items have often been chosen precisely because they yield further bibliographical information.Wainwright, Geoffrey is the author of 'Dictionary of the Ecumenical Movement' with ISBN 9782825413548 and ISBN 2825413542.
