"Edited by Allan R. Brockway and J. Paul Rajashekar".
"The new religious movements 'may be constructive or destructive, can lead to a new freedom or new enslavement, can depersonalize individuals or reveal their fuller human potential, can depend on religious faith or on new rituals equivalent to magic and the occult, can reclaim the drug addict and encourage virtuous lives or exhibit immoral and demonic features'. But if we are to follow the way of Jesus, that of 'barrier-breaking and not barrier-building', these movements must challenge us to dialogue -- a dialogue that does not exclude criticism. These and related issues were discussed at a consultation jointly sponsored by the World Council of Churches and the Lutheran World Federation. The book brings together the papers presented at the consultation and its findings and recommendations". -- back cover.

"Compiled by Alan D. Falconer".
"Reports and Papers Presented; International Bilateral Dialogues 1994-1997; List of Commissions, Meetings, Themes and Reports".
"The Seventh Forum was held at the Centre Jean XXIII in Annecy-le-Vieux, France, from 9-14 May 1997. The theme on this occasion was 'Emerging Visions of Visible Unity in the Canberra Statement and the Bilateral Dialogues'. It is some fifteen years since the vision of unity was the subject of discussion in the forum, although the intention of international dialogues is to seek to overcome obstacles that prevent visible unity. It was therefore deemed an appropriate moment to explore this theme, particularly in the light of the Canberra Statement, adopted at the World Council of Churches assembly in 1991". -- Preface.
