Continuing a series of posts calling attention to selected resources featured in Appendix 1, "Resources for Ecumenical Engagement," in Ecumenism Means You, Too: Ordinary Christians and the Quest for Christian Unity (Cascade Books, 2010):
The Faith and Order Commission Handbook published by the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA (New York: NCCCUSA Faith and Order Office, 2008; available online at http://www.ncccusa.org/pdfs/FOhandbook2008.pdf) is intended not only to orient new members of the Faith and Order Commission of the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA to the work of the Commission, but also to introduce other interested persons to Faith and Order ecumenism. It includes a concise history of the Faith and Order movement and an explanation of ecumenical methodology by noted American ecumenists, as well as a compilation of quotations from key ecumenical documents and a “Beginner’s Bibliography.”
