Receptive Ecumenism—Listening, Learning and Loving in the Way of Christ is a response to the growing recognition of Receptive Ecumenism as a concept and process that has the potential to bring about the greater flourishing of the Church, both within denominations and across the Church universal.

Rev Dr Vicky Balabanski is Senior Lecturer in Biblical Studies at Flinders University of South Australia and is ordained in the Uniting Church in Australia. Geraldine Hawkes is the Ecumenical Facilitator with the South Australian Council of Churches and Executive Secretary for Leaders of Christian Churches South Australia.

‘It is fitting that this book’s invitation to ecumenism arises from voices across the Christian tradition. Its significance, however, lies in the way it invites us to engage all of our senses in the practical reception of gifts each tradition has to offer. Indeed, it is one of the strengths of the receptive model of ecumenism that it lends itself to a variety of approaches ranging across the biblical, spiritual, ecclesial, and theological, all of which are ably represented in this volume. The idea that ecumenism starts in the recognition of our particular wounds is simple enough, but to carry it through, as the title suggests—listening, learning and loving—remains a challenge. With nuance and compassion these essays provide an engaging and practical point of departure.’
--Dr Marcus Pound, Centre for Catholic Studies, Durham University, UK
