Handbook of Churches and Councils

Full Product Description

It has often been said - and rightly so - that the World Council of Churches is first and foremost a fellowship of churches. This book is a vivid illustration of that reality. The descriptions, lists, statistical data and other information presented in these pages give a striking picture of the extent and diversity of this fellowship. It encompasses a Christian population of some 590 million people, in close to 150 countries in all regions of the world, comprised of over 520,000 local congregations served by some 493,000 pastors and priests, as well as countless elders, teachers, members of parish councils and others. This is not simply a handbook of the member churches of the World Council of Churches. At all levels - global, regional and sub-regional, national and local - member churches of the WCC interact with other churches which, for various reasons, are not formally part of the Council's membership. By combining in one volume all the conciliar and confessional bodies and their membership, this book demonstrates concretely the reach of the ecumenical movement and also shows how much broader it is than the WCC alone.It serves to remind us that ownership of the movement rests not only with the WCC but with all the partners, and ultimately with God.

Handbook of Churches and Councils by Huibert van Beek was published by World Council of Churches (WCC Publications) in February 2006. The ISBN for Handbook of Churches and Councils is 9782825414804.
