Thanks for reviewing the book, Andy!


Thanks for this review. We are intending to get it reivewed for Ecumenical Review but we tend to be a bit slower than the blogosphere!

I have been hoping to review the book at www.ecumenicalchristianperspective.blogspot.com. While I have ordered the book from the publisher nearly 2 weeks ago, I still have not received it. I have not been able to figure out what the problem is. I ordered another book from the same publisher at the same time and I received it within 4 or 5 days.


But what about all of the non-Christian Traditions and/or the 4 billion human beings who are not Christians?

Steve Harmon

A good question, John, which I address in the book. "Ecumenism" properly refers to the quest for more visible forms of unity in the midst of the current divisions of the church, while "interreligious dialogue" is the designation for the quest for mutual understanding between religions. It is important for the church to be engaged in both endeavors. A book could easily be written encouraging Christians to become involved in interreligious dialogue at the grassroots, but that's beyond the scope of my expertise.
