Ecumenical Reception

Full Product Description

In 1988 William Rusch wrote a book tracing the development of the idea of reception up to that time. During the intervening years, both reflection on reception and the experience of attempting to engage in it have progressed considerably.

Rusch begins with a bird's-eye view of the term reception across several disciplines ? law, philosophy, literary criticism ? before homing in on its theological import. He traces its use as a term and as a practice from the New Testament up to the twentieth century, painting a picture of a dynamic process that fosters unity and diversity among churches and spiritual communities. Finally, he examines the new chapter in the history of reception due to the establishment of the ecumenical movement, and considers what will be necessary for it to continue to move the church forward.

Ecumenical Reception by William G. Rusch was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in July 2007 and is our 61318th best seller. The ISBN for Ecumenical Reception is 9780802847232.
