Future of the Ecumenical Movement In this book, KuncheriaPathil argues that “Roman Catholic Church is in no way ready to change its traditional position that it alone possesses the fullness of ‘ecclesial reality’ and other churches have only some elements of the ‘ecclesial reality’. Hence, they are all defective in varying degrees. World Council of Churches holds the position of plurality of churches; there are different types and models of churches and one type, however ancient and sacrosanct it is, cannot be the only norm and criterion…” This book calls for a re-conceptualization of the ecumenical movement, its objectives and methods. “What KuncheriaPathil presents in this book is his reflections and the insights gained during these decades of his ecumenical involvement as an Asian Catholic theologian... At a time when many churches seem to retreat behind an affirmation of their particular confessional identity and respond with fear to the challenges of the cultural transformation in the contemporary world, this book is a welcome sign of encouragement and hope for the future of the ecumenical movement.” – Konrad Raiser
