Imagining the Ecumenical

A personal journey

by John D'Arcy May

Imagining the Ecumenical
ISBN: 9780994470768
Pages: 170

Beginning and ending at home in Australia, John May tells the story of his journey from unquestioning Catholicism through Christian ecumenism to the developing relations between the world’s religions. He brings into sharp focus the questions raised for theology by interreligious relations and the challenge such questions raise: are we capable of truly imagining the ecumenical in all its implications for our religious convictions and the future of the world?
