dc.description.abstractIn an era when life itself is imperilled, Christians around the world are challenged to authentic witness to the God of life and to justice and peace. Ecumenical Visions, prepared as a core resource for theological education and reflection in advance of the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches, equips Christians to discern and develop relevant and responsible insights in many arenas of Christian engagement. The anthology: • Presents 44 key documents from the last two decades of ecumenical work, most in full texts, with introductions and study questions • Illumines the changing features of world Christianity today • Includes a particular focus on Asian Christianity and Christianity in Korea • Highlights important ecumenical convergences in Christian unity, mission, advocacy and service • Presents the latest and best ecumenical thinking about Christian engagement in issues of justice and peace, poverty, economy, education, gender, climate change, migration, HIV and AIDS, and interreligious encounter • Includes a full bibliography and a fully searchable CD-ROM with all the texts and 20 supplemental readings. [In the table of contents these readings are listed in shaded type]. - The depth and range of Ecumenical Visions for the 21st Century make it an indispensable resource for students and professors of theology and a promising workbook for thinking with the world church toward renewed and fruitful Christian engagement in the world.
