Item description for The Ecumenical Christian Dialogues and the Catechism of the Catholic Church by Jeffrey Gros & Daniel S. Mulhall...
Overview A brief source of ecumenical agreements on the doctrines covered in the Catholic Catechism prepared for educators, priests and Catholic ministers.
Publishers Description Due to growing interest in ecumenism, dialogue among Christian churches has grown in the last 50 years. This one-of-a-kind book offers selections from ecumenical dialogues formally sponsored by the Catholic Church arranged according to the order of the Cathechism of the Catholic Church; readers can learn what the Catholic Church believes and what other Christian churches believe on the same topic gathered together. The volume of selections beings with a chapter on Catholic ecumenical principles, and a chapter on the churches involved in the dialogue. Following these introductory chapters are seven chapters on agreements in faith, sacraments, the Christian life, and spirituality following the four parts of the Catechism. Throughout the seven final chapters are editor's notes to help the reader understand the context of the dialogues, the pertinent issues involved, and the significance of what has been addressed, all in clear, easy-to-understand language.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ecumenical Christian Dialogues and the Catechism of the Catholic Church?
Must-have parish resource! Mar 8, 2009
This reference should be on every pastoral minister's shelf right between the Catechism and the National Directory on Catechesis. Bro. Jeff Gros is one of the pre-eminent ecumenists in the English speaking world, and speaks from a lifetime of service as a Catholic educator. This is an essential resource in identifying the synergy between Catholic Identity and Catholic Ecumenism. Every priest, deacon, and lay ecclesial minister should have a copy handy.
