Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809143216, Paperback)Ancient Faith and American-Born Churches is a groundbreaking book that brings together in dialogue, representatives of various Christian churches which function as though they were in completely different worlds. These dialogues were undertaken by the ecclesiology study group of the Faith and Order Commission, National Council of the Churches of Christ. Churches originating in pre-American (pre-United States) experience were brought into dialogue with churches in the American experience, i.e., a dialogue between Roman Catholic and Baptist traditions. Some of the topics explored in the eight dialogues are apostolicity, Christian Initiation, and the authority and function of scripture.
The result then is a dialogue that exemplifies much of what is best in the modern ecumenical movement. Though the participants live and work in different ecclesial communities, they were able to see each other as friends and faith--faith that recognizes Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
