Christians live in a pluralist context. This makes the issues of faith, freedom and their interrelationship all the more critical. Faith that is authentic and seen to be so may well be the church s most vital and persuasive apologetic. To that end, the church must retain its freedom to follow faithfully its pioneer and perfecter. Yet in a pluralist culture, the church s faith and freedom must be expressed and embodied in a coherent rather than discordant way. The ecumenical movement was one of the most important theological developments of the twentieth century, but the church as a whole needs to travel further down this road and some individual churches have significant catching up to do. The contributors to this collection represent the Anabaptist, Anglican, Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Roman Catholic and Uniting church traditions, yet the dominant chords sounded are in harmony-for faith and freedom.
