The Unity of the Church
|Field of Study||Theology|
Today we are reaping the fruit of ongoing ecumenical dialogue. After years of comparative analysis of our differing histories and beliefs we seem to be “leaving controversies behind” and advancing toward new forms of unity and common life. This course will examine the theological content of recent dialogues and agreed statements. Students will inquire into the nature of the church’s unity, locating both advances and obstacles in the journey toward unity and considering what they portend for the future shape of the church.
