About this title


Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (BEM) remains a seminal text for the churches and the ecumenical movement. Since its publication in 1982, this World Council of Churches Faith and Order convergence document has been translated into more than 40 languages, has remained an ecumenical best-seller, and has been the basis of many official agreements between churches. BEM at 25: Critical Insights into a Continuing Legacy - a vibrant collection of essays from a wide range of confessional and regional perspectives - explores the continuing legacy of BEM. Articles trace the influence of BEM - and the challenge it continues to pose today - in areas such as worship, ecclesiology, the churches' social witness, and local parish life. Critical questions are also raised. How far have the churches acted upon the agreements signaled in BEM? Was there full participation in the BEM process in all regions of the world? What do the churches' experiences with BEM tell us about the next stage of the ecumenical journey? BEM at 25 is an essential resource for all those interested in the history - and future - of the ecumenical movement.
