Pioneer of the Ecumenical Movement May 16, 1999
This is an excellent presentation on the life and thought of this pioneer of the ecumenical movement. The biography of Edmund Schlink from his early years through the church struggle under the Nazi regime in Germany, his contribution to the rebuilding of the Protestant church in Germany after the war, and especially his contributions to the ecumenical movement in the context of the WCC as well as with regard to Protestant-Roman Catholic relations are described on the basis of unpublished materials. Thus a fascinating report on the life and activities of one of the leading Lutheran theologians of our time emerges. The development of Schlink's theology is incorporated into this description. The book is a remarkable achievment and should be read by anyone interested in the ecumenical Christian movement of our century, but also as a paradigmatic biography of a life of Christian theologian from Germany under the impact of the difficult experiences of this century.
