First published in 1996 this book examines the search for unity in the Church. For the previous thirty years pioneering conversations, between pairs of churches or communities, and multilaterally, put forward solutions to old disagreements and began to build a new ecumenical theology. But when it comes to taking actual steps towards unity there is often a drawing-back from the final commitment. G. R. Evans examines the methodology of ecumenical theory and the way it is being taken into the lives of the Churches, from the experience which has been reported so far. This is a necessary stocktaking exercise, as Dr Evans shows that discussions are now so developed that we can list topics which have become recurrent issues. By making judicious use of interdenominational archival material and secondary literature, the author provides a timely resource for all those interested in recent ecumenical progress.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'A rich and important theological reflection ... The author knows how to discern the point at stake, and how to discuss it with the help of the most precise vocabulary. The result is a very lucid teasing out of crucial motions like sister-Churches, Communion, Church and Churches, local Church, catholicity, Mother Church, primacy and diversity.' Jean Tillard, Priests & People
Review of the hardback: '... well conceived and clear in its structure. The crucial areas are identified; these include historical questions and issues about language and consonance.' Stephen Platten, Church Times
Review of the hardback: 'Professor Evans's research is a signpost toward the future.' The Tablet
