This excellent book...really should be read by all Christians who take seriously their ecumenical responsibilities and Christ's call that 'they may all be one'. (Peter Tyler, FOOD for the journey)
No one with a serious interest in ecumenism can afford to miss this volume... All the churches have cause to be grateful for the imaginative way Dr Murray and his colleagues are promoting both ecumenism and the study of Catholic theology. (Paul Richardson, Church of England Newspaper)
The fundamental principle is that each tradition, before it offers what it can teach others, should focus on what it can learn and receive from others. It is thus essentially a corporate spiritual exercise in humility... To judge, not just by the admirable contents of this volume, but also by the process and the generous spirit (Spirit?), which drives it, the prospects for receptive ecumenism are brighter than some commentators, in Rome and at home, predict. (John Arnold, ACF Centro)
...it is heartening to see this sophisticated venture to revitalise ecumenical exchange explicity adopting interfaith strategies, guided by an intellectual humility inclining each to learn from the other. This tactic allows us to see how "ecumenism" can hardly be limited to inter-Christian exchange...This fivefold ordering offers clear direction in matters ecumenical to the superb participants. A properly eschatological intent is fleshed out in one essay after another by invoking the "pilgrim church" archetype: learning from others on the way to a goal all shre, but which none can confidently articulate, as it eludes human construction. (David Burrell, The Tablet)
there are many gems [within]. The book, and the movement it articulates, is like the tiny tips of spring buds on a raw day before spring has begun. (Christopher Hill, Church Times)
