Beyond the East-West Divide

Full Product Description

Orthodox participation in the World Council of Churches has always been a paradox -- enthusiastically committed and yet plagued by complaints. This situation has lately reached crisis proportions: two Orthodox churches have withdrawn their membership; more threaten to follow. Is this an 'Orthodox problem'? Or is there something fundamentally wrong with the ecumenical machinery? In this book, two theologians -- one an Orthodox and one a Lutheran -- engage in an extended dialogue to illumine some of the issues and possible ways forward. The issues they discuss fall squarely within the agenda of the Special Commission on Orthodox Participation in the WCC, which was created in Harare in 1998.

Beyond the East-West Divide by Anna Marie Aagaard; Peter Bouteneff was published by World Council of Churches (WCC Publications) in January 2001. The ISBN for Beyond the East-West Divide is 9782825413500.
