Whenever an attempt has benn made in recent years at a diagnosis of the ecumenical movement, an impression has emerged of stagnation of even resignation. Has the momentum been lost?
Taking this question as his starting point, in this book Konrad Raiser undertakes a critical examination of the present-day problem areas in the ecumenical movement. What some see as a perios of making time and helplessness, he attempts to understand in terms of a paradigm shift which will lead to fresh approaches to contemporary problems.
I have loved the Old Testament and its stories longer than I can remember. Somewhere in the photographs of my memory is a book my mother read to me, from a day and a world when there were not many books and when pictures and typography were not naturally attractive; yet this book captured me, and we came back to it again and again - a child's book of Bible stories, most of them from the Old Testament.
