In this unique volume Esther Byle Bruland collects the personal stories of people from widely differing Christian backgrounds and eloquently weaves them into her own passionate exploration of the difficulties and triumphs of ecumenism today.
The stories and ideas shared here are drawn from Christians scattered throughout North America - black and white; Roman Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant; women and men; professional church leaders, scholars, and laypersons - who came together to talk openly about their own experiences of Christianity and to understand other Christian traditions better.
Structured into eleven enlightening, conversation-style chapters, this volume speaks - often in the participants' own words - through frank and powerful narratives that Bruland has specifically shaped to highlight their implications for ecumenical regathering. Using numerous quotations from a wide range of individuals - including Richard Mouw, Margaret O'Gara, and Anthony Ugolnik - and some fresh voices from evangelical, Pentecostal, and Holiness Christians, Bruland shows both how difficult the struggle for ecumenism can be and how heartening its successes are.
