From Prapat to Colombo: History of the Christian Conference of Asia (1957-1995)

£50.00

Product description

Here, for the first time, is a historical account of the Christian Conference of Asia, the first regional ecumenical organization.
The CCA, known till 1973 as the East Asia Christian Conference, was born of the conviction that the Christian task in Asia cannot be left to the western mission enterprises or the initiatives of national churches alone, but had to be undertaken by all the Asian churches witnessing together.
It was in fact the coming together of the churches in response to their common calling.
that response had to address the Asian context, the rich variety of its spiritual heritage as much as the struggles of its people to affirm their humanity.
What is told here is the story of that response, from Pratat in Indonesia in 1957 where it was conceived, to 1995 when, coming together in Colombo, Sri Lanka, it will affirm its hope in God in a changing Asia.
