Book News: Leaning into the Spirit

Congratulations to PaCT Fellow Dr Virginia Miller and PaCT Director Rt Rev'd Professor Stephen Pickard who together with The Most Rev'd David Moxon, have edited a new ecumenical book published by Palgrave Macmillan.

Leaning into the Spirit: Ecumenical Perspectives on Discernment and Decision-making in the Church is part of a series on Pathways for Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue.

According to the publisher:

  • Gives fresh insight into ecumenism
  • Offers new theological insights in the areas of Christology, Pneumatology and Trinitarian theology
  • Includes leading international theologians Michael Welker, Paul Avis, Thomas Rausch, and Paul D. Murray, among others

This book contains fresh insights into ecumenism and, notwithstanding claims of an “ecumenical winter,” affirms the view that we are actually moving into a “new ecumenical spring.” It offers new theological insights in the areas of Christology, Pneumatology and Trinitarian theology, and discusses developments in ecumenism in the USA, UK, Australia, India, and Africa, as well as in ecumenical institutions such as the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the Anglican Roman Catholic Commission (ARCIC).
