These essays, originally delivered as the 1997 Hein-Fry Lectures, examine three major ecumenical documents: the Lutheran-Reformed Formula of Agreement, the Episcopal Lutheran Concordat, and the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification. Fackre and Root outline these important proposals, explore the theological and ecclesiastical issues they raise, and discuss their relevance for the worldwide church.
