Future Of The Ecumenical Movement
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.
