Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Ecumenical Quest
This book aims to show how and why for Dietrich Bonhoeffer, from the conclusion of his student years in Berlin to his death on the Nazi gallows at Flossenburg, the ecumenical movement was central to his concerns. Of course during these years he fulfilled several distinct roles: academic theologian and teacher, leading protagonist for the Confessing Church, pastor, seminary director and - most dramatically and controversially - willing participant in the German resistance and the conspiracy to overthrow Hitler. But it is his commitment and active involvement in the ecumenical movement that forms the most continuous thread of his life and activity, and links all his various engagements. Equally, the challenge that he laid down to that movement in his time remains a legacy which has still to be fully claimed by the ecumenical world today. -from the Preface

Faith
'I hope I am not alone,' writes the author, 'in feeling that in much recent theological discussion the basic issue of what it means to have faith has suffered some neglect. The debate about the incarnation, as a myth or otherwise, will doubtless continue for some time. On the other hand, voices are raised in protest at what is seen as a mere academic game, by those who stress Christianity as action, and theology as reflection upon action. Both understanding and action are integral to Christianity. But in the Christian context it is faith which seeks understanding, and which bears fruit in action. Without faith, there is nothing to understand, and nothing to act on. I have tried to present Christian faith in its wholeness, not simply as what the believer thinks, or feels, or does, but as nothing less than a personal relationship with God which involves the whole person. The thinking, the feeling, the doing, must not, as all too often happens, be divorced from this relationship.' And so, in a penetrating and illuminating book, we explore faith as a question, as human, as trust, gift, decision, confession, commitment, freedom and understanding, before reflecting, finally, on the very nature of faith as exploration of the goodness and graciousness of God.

The Churches in Europe as Witnesses to Healing
This collection of articles, speeches and sermons traces the current and future of European churches in mission on a continent caught up in rapid social change and institutional reordering. The author reflects on the meaning of healing and reconciliation within specific contexts from Northern Ireland to Serbia and, more generally, among the many religiously and culturally pluralist and post-modern societies found across the breadth of Europe. He challenges the churches with this recurring question: Are we still of any use? This is the thread running throughout. His answer is a definite 'yes' -- provided the churches really live in the world as it is and renew their hope in the gospel itself. Biblical commentary, church traditions, personal experiences and illustrations drawn from everyday life combine to offer insights into Europe's need for healing and reconciliation, the relationship between particular identity and universal community, churches' potential to act as peace-makers in Europe and the wider world, and contemporary prospects for Christian unity.

The Moot Papers: Faith, Freedom and Society 1938-1944
The Moot was the study and discussion group set by J.H. Oldham (1874-1969) following the 1937 Oxford conference on Church, Community and State . Its purpose was to continue, in an informal but serious way, exploration of the relation between church and society and the realization of Christian ethics in the public sphere. The Moot met twice or three times a year from 1938 to 1947 (21 times in all) and was convened by Oldham with the conscious intention of responding to the grave crisis that was felt to be facing western society in Britain no less than on the continent of Europe. Overall some 35 people attended the Moot at one time or another, but its core comprised a small number of regular members who were representative of the highest levels in theology, social science and public affairs. In addition to Oldham himself they included T.S. Elliot, H. A. Hodges, Eleonora Iredale, Adolf Lowe, Karl Mannheim, Walter Moberly, John Middleton Murry and Alec Vidler. Other participants included Kathleen Bliss, Fred Clarke, Christopher Dawson, H. H. Farmer, Hector Hetherington, Walter Oakshott and Gilbert Shaw, while notables such as Reinhold Niebuhr, Melville Chaning-Pearce, Donald McKinnon, Philip Mairet, Leslie Newbiggin, William Paton, Frank Pakenham (later Lord Longford), Michael Polanyi and Oliver Tomkins made occasional guest appearances . Against the background of impending and then actual war, the discussions in the Moot repeatedly focused on the planned nature of modern society and therewith the roles (if any) within it of moral choice and the Christian community.
