Front Cover
WCC Publications, 1991 - Religion - 132 pages
Whenever an attempt has been made in recent years at a diagnosis of the ecumenical movement, an impression has emerged of stagnation or even resignation. Has the momentum been lost? Taking this question as his starting point, in this book Konrad Raiser undertakes a critical examination of the present-day problems areas in the ecumenical movement. What some see as a period of marking time and helplessness, he attempts to understand in terms of a paradigm shift which will lead to fresh approaches to contemporary problems.
