Bliss, S.M. traces how the concern for ecumenism came about_from uneasy tension to confidence in the true grace of catholicity. This second edition of Catholic and Ecumenical follows significant developments in dialogues with the Catholic Church up to 2006, and suggests likely trends of continuing change.
Frederick M. Bliss, S.M., teaches ecumenical theology at the Angelicum in Rome where he also coordinates the work of the ecumenical section of the university. He is the author of Anglicans in Rome and Understanding Reception: A Background to its Ecumenical Use.
