"One Baptism: Towards Mutual Recognition" online in PDF

Good news--the full text of the World Council of Churches Commission on Faith and Order study document One Baptism: Towards Mutual Recognition. A Study Text (Faith and Order Paper no. 210; Geneva: World Council of Churches, 2011), published late last year in hard copy, is now available online in PDF on the WCC web site (click on hyperlinked title). Printed copies may be ordered directly from WCC Publications, Rte de Ferney 150, P.O. BOX 2100, CH-1211 Geneva 2, Switzerland; e-mail:; Tel. +41 22 791 60 18; Fax. +41 22 798 13 46.

I hope all readers of Ecclesial Theology will take the time to download and read "One Baptism," ponder its implications, call it to the attention of others, and take up discussion of the questions posed by the study document in their own Christian communities. (I've encouraged my own Baptist tradition to do so in my Baptist World article "'One Baptism': A Study Text for Baptists.")
