Washington Theological Consortium: New Books of Note in Ecumenism

Gerald Stover, an active lay ecumenist with the Lehigh County Conference of Churches in Pennsylvania, has called my attention to a most helpful annotated bibliography of recent books on ecumenical themes maintained and updated periodically by the Washington Theological Consortium. Readers of this blog will note in the current listing notices regarding two volumes I've mentioned here: Paul D. Murray, ed., Receptive Ecumenism and the Call to Catholic Learning: Exploring a Way for Contemporary Ecumenism (Oxford University Press, 2008) and John A Radano, Lutheran & Catholic Reconciliation on Justification (Eerdmans, 2009).


  1. Great group. I have been introduced to them through my work at Washington Theological Union which is also extremely ecumenical .

  2. Otis, congrats on the beginning of your D.Min. studies at WTU. Keep me posted on your work there.

  3. Thank you for posting the web site for ecumenical bibliographic resources provided to the Washington Theological Consortium by Head Librarian Mitzi Budde of the Virginia Theological Seminary staff and faculty.

    All of us can learn more in a brief visit to a continuously updated on-line ecumenical bibliography than we can if we toil through the "Tables of Contents" from multiple hard copy library journals..... Journals should be read --of course-- but we all have to read selectively. Librarian Budde is performing an invaluable public service to the wider English speaking ecumenical community here in North America and elsewhere.
