"This book records the reflections and experience of some twenty Christians -- liturgists, theologians, church musicians, pastors -- who gathered at a Faith and Order consultation held in Faverges, France, in 1997"-- Intro. p. [1]. This book "focusses on baptism in relation to the unity of the church. Exploring patterns of baptismal practice today, including striking examples of inculturation from around the world, and noting continuing problems such as 're'-baptism, it calls the churches to draw the full implications of their `mutual recognition of baptism'. It also insists on the links between liturgy and life, offering fresh perspectives on the relation between baptism and Christian ethics." -- back cover.

"Edited by Thomas F. Best and Tamara Grdzelidze".
Includes bibliographical references.
"Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry (BEM) remains a seminal text for the churches and the ecumenical movements. Since its publication in 1982, this World Council of Churches Faith and Order convergence document has been translated into more than 40 languages, has remained an ecumenical best-seller, and has been the basis of many official agreements between churches. This vibrant collection of essays, from a wide range of confessional and regional perspectives, explores the continuing legacy of BEM. Articles trace the influence of BEM -- and the challenge it continues to pose today -- in areas such as worship, ecclesiology, the churches' social witness, and local parish life. But critical questions are also raised: how far have the churches acted upon the agreements signalled in BEM ? Was there full participation in the BEM process in all regions of the world ? And what does the churches' experience with BEM tell us about the next stage of the ecumenical journey ?" -- back cover.
"[M]ost of the contributors -- who wrote of course as individual theologians from various traditions -- were invited to reflect on the legacy of BEM for a volume dedicated to the 80th birthday of Lukas Vischer, Director of Faith and Order during most of the long process of envisioning and producing the text. In this sense this volume may be regarded as a Festschrift for Lukas Vischer, offered in tribute to his commitment to the cause of the visible unity of the church". -- Preface.
Contents divided into three main sections: Issues of Ecclesiology and Worship -- Reception: Regional and Other Perspectives -- BEM and Beyond.
Contents: Preface / Thomas F. Best and Tamara Grdzelidze -- Baptism and Christian Initiation in Ecclesiological Perspective / S. Mark Heim -- A "Real though incomplete Communion through Baptism": Ecumenical Development Twenty-Five Years After 'Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry' / John A. Radano -- The Eucharistic Dynamic of BEM / Geoffrey Wainwright -- BEM and the Struggle for the Liturgical Soul of the Emergent Church / Michael Northcott -- Personal, Collegial and Synodal Responsibility in the Roman Catholic Church: What Convergences Are There Between Reception of Vatican II and BEM / Herve Legrand -- The Effect of Baptism. Eucharist and Ministry on the Church of England / Mary Tanner -- Memory Against Forgetting : the BEM Document After Twenty-Five Years / Gennadios of Sassima -- Some Problems of Authority and Credibility in the Drafting and Reception Processes of the BEM Document / Jesse N.K. Mugambi -- Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry and the Church in Latin America / Valerio Guilherme Schaper and Rudolf von Sinner -- Ecclesiology and Ethics: An Example of Global-Local Dynamics / Martin Robra -- Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry in Bilateral Dialogues / Jaako Rusama -- From "anamnesis" to "metanoia" : Beyond Convergence Texts Towards Attitudinal Conversion / Jacob Kurien -- "Saltus liturgicus oecumenicus" : Two Perspectives on Ecumenical Dialogue "Beyond BEM" / Andreas H.

"In this work we seek to capture something of the vision, hopes, and achievements, something of the problems and failures, of the united and the uniting church movement over the past eighty years. While the book had its origin in a specific consultation of united and uniting churches, the issues raised are general ones, and form a sound introduction to this fascinating and important part of global Christianity". - Intro., p.

"The papers by Peter Lodberg, William Henn, Duncan Forrester, Emmanuel Clapsis, Emilio Castro and Larry Rasmussen were first published in "The Ecumenical Review", vol. 47, no. 2, 1995".
Contents: The History of ecumenical work on ecclesiology and ethics / Peter Lodberg -- Reactions and responses to "Costly Unity" and to the discussion in Santiago : A Roman Catholic perspective / William Henn -- Ecclesiology and ethics : a Reformed perspective / Duncan B. Forrester -- Ecclesiology and ethics : reflections by an Orthodox theologian / Emmanuel Clapsis -- Ethical reflections among the churches : a Free Church perspective / Emilio Castro -- Moral Community and moral foundation / Larry Rasmussen -- Costly Commitment : Report of the Consultation.
The report and papers in this book are part of a series of ecumenical discussions on the relationship between eccelesiology and ethics. "The first gathering in this process was held in Ronde, Denmark, in February 1993. It produced the widely-discussed text `Costly unity'." "The second gathering in the study process -- the meeting which supplied the material for this book -- took place at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute, near Jerusalem, Israel in November 1994." There will eventually be a third consultation on "moral formation".

The ecumenical enquiry, which has explored the relationship between what the church is and what the church does, offers fresh insights into critical issues for all who are seeking a renewed vision of the ecumenical movement. .... Also included are essays by Duncan Forrester, Viorel Ionita, Larry Rasmussen and Elizabeth Tapia responding to the study from diverse confessional and cultural points of view". -- back cover.
