Signs of the Spirit

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

From the back cover: Signs of the Spirit is the official report of the seventh assembly of the World Council of Churches which met in Canberra, Australia, 7 to 20 February 1991. It tells the story of the assembly, and includes in full the major presentations made at the assembly, the reports received or adopted by the assembly and the statements issued by it.

The theme of Canberra, "Come, Holy Spirit - Renew the Whole Creation", was not only the first assembly theme to focus on the activity of the Spirit but also the first to take the form of a prayer. The Australian setting called the churches' attention to an often-neglected part of the world. At Canberra the church in China rejoined the global fellowship, and startling developments in South Africa and Europe were celebrated and discussed. And, of course, Canberra will be remembered as gathering under the shadow of war.

This assembly also placed enormous challenges on the agenda of the WCC and its member churches. The question of the gospel's relation to culture was raised more directly and pointedly than ever before. While the need for inculturation is widely accepted, the forms it must take and the limits that must be set continue to be controversial. And questions of participation - of women, youth, laity, and the differently-abled - cry out for further attention. So do question raised about the limits of participation.

Ex-library copy. There are markings and stamps indicating the library from where it was donated.
