ecumenical dictionary

"The long-awaited revised and expanded second edition of the "Dictionary of the Ecumenical Movement" has just been published. Produced by the World Council of Churches (WCC), this volume is an essential tool for study and research on the movement and for passing the ecumenical memory on to a new generation...

"This second edition maintains the accuracy, objectivity and wide range of the first edition, and takes account of the major changes that have taken place in the world, and the life of the churches, during the decade since it first appeared. Readers will thus find new articles on subjects like "economic globalization", "ethnic conflict", "religious roots of violence"', as well as "Pentecostal-Reformed dialogue", "Baptist-Orthodox relations"', and "theology of religions", among many others...

"One article per month will be published on the WCC website over the coming year."
