Document Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World
A landmark document addressing the conduct of Christian witness around the world was released 28 June 2011 by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID) of the Roman Catholic Church, the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) after five years of work. With an expressed awareness of inter-religious tensions and the difference in religious convictions, the document, "Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World: Recommendations for Conduct" is meant as a tool for churches, ecumenical organizations and mission agencies rather than a policy or theological statement.
