Interchurch and Interfaith Relations

Seventh-Day Adventist Statements and Documents

by Stefan Höschele (Author)
Monographs 186 Pages
Series: Adventistica , Volume 10

Summary

This book contains the first comprehensive collection of Seventh-day Adventist texts and statements on interchurch and interfaith relations. With more than 16 million baptized members and about 30 million adherents in total today, this church is a significant global Christian movement. However, Adventist interchurch relations have been characterized by some degree of ambivalence; therefore this collection is an attempt to document a phenomenon found in other less ecumenically inclined denominations as well. At the same time, the texts in this book can serve to enlighten the thinking in churches that lack enthusiasm for the Ecumenical Movement but still do attempt to cooperate with other Christians and even non-Christians in ways that are compatible with their specific convictions.
