"Edited by Thomas F. Best".
Includes bibliographical references.
"This book, forms the official record of the seventh international consultation of United and Uniting Churches. Hosted by churches in the Netherlands on the threshold of union, the consultation brought trenchant reflections on issues of which challenge all churches today: the meaning of unity in a world which prefers division; the imperative of a mission which promotes unity rather than division; and the church's identity at a time when institutions and values are under threat. In addition to these themes, the consultation message tackles the crucial ecumenical issue of relationships, calling for fresh and frank dialogue between the United and Uniting churches, their mission and funding partners, and the Christian world communions". -- back cover.
