I am very pleased that this publication has been put together We need to be reminded continuously that inter-Church relations are developing.

Publishers Description Inter-Church Relations in the New Ireland celebrates the long-standing commitment, enthusiasm and, not least, sense of joy that Bishop Anthony Farquhar has brought to inter-church relations over the past twenty-five years. The collection of essays in this book provides a forum for some of those who have come to know him over those years to offer their reflection on issues to do with inter-church relations. It does so against the broader canvas of international developments in ecumenism. With contributors from the Irish Inter-Church meeting and the Irish School of Ecumenics, the Corrymeela community and the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, the World Alliance of Reformed Churches as well as from current and past leaders of churches, this book is a valuable contribution to reviewing how the changing patterns of relationship that are emerging in the new social, cultural and political developments, north and south of the border, are impacting on inter-church relations.
