A "unique witness to faith-filled dialogue"
Founded by Charles Colson and Richard John Neuhaus in 1994, Evangelicals and Catholics Together (ECT) has fostered a fruitful conversation on the meaning of the gospel in today's world. Over the course of twenty years, ECT has issued nine statements addressing contemporary topics. This one-volume guide, the first collection of the ECT statements, explores the key accomplishments of this groundbreaking, ongoing dialogue. Introductions and notes provide context and discuss history and future prospects. The book also includes prefaces by J. I. Packer and Cardinal Timothy Dolan, a foreword by George Weigel, and an epilogue by R. R. Reno and Kevin J. Vanhoozer. "These statements and their accompanying essays deserve a wide and attentive readership because of both the pertinence of their concerns and the sophistication of their theological argument. This volume reflects ecumenical writing done at a superior level."
--Lawrence S. Cunningham, University of Notre Dame "Evangelicals and Catholics Together continues to make a very positive contribution to Christian theology, moral action, and ecumenical integrity. While its independent, noninstitutional, and ad hoc way of working is distinctly American, the fruits of its labors offer a great, ongoing gift to the entire Christian world."
--Mark A. Noll, coauthor of Is the Reformation Over? "It is wonderful to have these ecumenically rich and theologically substantive statements gathered into a single volume, which is further enhanced by helpful and insightful introductions to each of the nine statements as well as a general introduction and epilogue that set the context and foster ongoing discernment. This unique witness to faith-filled dialogue not only enlightens but also inspires and emboldens. Such witness takes on even greater urgency in a contemporary culture increasingly adrift."
