9780810828537: Historical Dictionary of Ecumenical Christianity
View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This historical dictionary covers the major trends in the 20th century ecumenical movement until today. It deals with developments in the realms of church unity, mission and evangelism, laity, women in church and society, and many other ecumenical subjects. It also covers many programs and activities of the World Council of Churches since its inception in 1948. The longer articles survey important theological themes while short articles provide quick reference on a precise question. The bibliography is not exhaustive-some 50,000 titles have been published since the beginning of this century-but very helpful for major bibliographical information. The dictionary is particularly strong in American subjects and includes a great number of ecuminical personalities which cannot be found in other reference works. This publication is not only an indispensible tool of research for university and seminary libraries but also for individual persons belonging to whatever Christian church who are interested in knowing more about reflections, relations, and activities in the several regions of the ecumenical world. A helpful description of the most important ecumenical assemblies and conferences is provided. To take stock of the past, to interpret the present, and to look forward into the third millenium of Christian existence are exciting and challenging enterprises.

About the Author:

Ans Joachim van der Bent has been the director of the Library and Archives of the World Council of Churches in Geneva from 1963 to 1985, and its Ecumenical World Research Officer from 1985 to 1989. He has published some 20 reference works and ecumenical monographs, and some 100 articles in ecumenical journals. He has a living knowledge and comprehensive memory of the 20th century ecumenical movement.

Review:

...an essential addition to any college, university, denominational, and even congregational library...We can be grateful for such a readable, concise and ready reference to the ecumenical movement and its conciliar institutions. (Journal of Ecumenical Studies)

An indispensable handbook to twentieth-century ecumenism. (Books and Media Resources)

...most libraries will want to add this to their shelves. (American Reference Books Annual)

Van der Bent's dictionary is well done. (CHOICE)

... particularly strong on American subjects and includes a great number of ecumenical personalities which cannot be found in other reference works. (Reference and Research Book News)
