THis work comes out of the "Braaten/Jenson Ecumenical Center" which has provided so many great books on Christian reunion. The center isn't called that, but those two untiring Christians have done so much that it should be named after them!
Now this book doesn't solve any problems per se, but it does put them into context and it avoids the unhelpful, silly, and unscholarly straw man arguments that the cheaper scholarship throws out as to why we should be Catholic or Protestant or Orthodox or "Protholidox"! WHile it is a great book for those interested in reunion, it is certainly a must-read for those who have read Ut Unum Sint, "that all may be one".
See my review of Brian Tierney's "Origins of Papal Infallibility" for a great selection of books that deal indepth with the subject of reunion between east and west as it relates to the papacy. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rank: 3.25 STARS

Introduction:
Let me start off by saying that I wish I could have given this book a 5 stars. That's why I bought this book, because I thought I was going to learn a lot from it. Sadly, while there was plenty of material for me to underling and notes to make, I found some of the chapters (which are separate essays and speaches) very soporific. Going to sleep is not what I had in mind, when I wanted to read some practical advice and response from a variety of Christians to former pope John Paul II's encyclical letter of "Ut Unum Sint" ("May They Be One" - first roman-catholic encyclical on Christian Unity).

Authors:
During June 6-8 1999, Carl E. Braaten and Robert W. Jenson, the founders of the "Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology" (a great ecumenical site and small publisher), hosted a theological conference as a response to then pope John Paul II's 1995 Encyclical Letter - Ut Unum Sint. This conference was held at University of St. Thomas in St. Paul Minnesota. This book is a collection of the speaches at that conference and the majority of the speakers represent the Roman-Catholic branch, while there is only one Lutheran and one neoProtestant response, and none from the Orthodox division of Christianity.

Content:

I will provide a summary of each speach, so please bear with me. You might find some golden nuggets. (numbers in parenthesis refer to the encyclical)

- Introduction:
* "...despite existing separations, 'we [Christians' belong to Christ' (42)."
* "The pope's ecumenical devotion to unity is based on Jesus' highpriestly prayer in Chapter 17 of St. John's Gospel."
* "...
