By Steven R. Harmon

The Baptist obsession to gain a real church birthed a practice of separation. whereas Baptists’ misgivings approximately ecumenism might stem from this fissiparous family tree, it really is both actual that the trendy ecumenical flow itself more and more lacks consensus concerning the pathway to a visual Christian unity.

In Baptist identification and the Ecumenical Future, Steven R. Harmon explores the connection of the Baptist calling to be a pilgrim group and the ecumenical stream. Harmon argues that neither imaginative and prescient will be fulfilled except a together receptive ecumenical engagement. As Harmon indicates, Baptist groups and the church buildings from which they're separated desire each other. leader one of the presents Baptists need to supply the remainder of the church are their pilgrim aversion to overly learned eschatologies of the church and their radical dedication to discerning the guideline of Christ via the Scriptures. Baptists, in flip, needs to be keen to obtain from different church buildings missed features of the unconventional catholicity from which the Bible is inseparable.

Embedded within the Baptist imaginative and prescient and its historic embodiment are mind-blowing openings for ecumenical convergence. Baptist identification and the Ecumenical Future urges Baptists and their discussion companions to acknowledge and include those ecumenically orientated features of Baptist id as imperative provisions for his or her shared pilgrimage towards the fullness of the guideline of Christ of their midst, which continues to be partial as long as Christ’s physique continues to be divided.
