Founded at the same time as the World Council of Churches, this publication explores the potential and reality of Christian cooperation in faith and action.

The Ecumenical Review is a quarterly theological journal. Each issue focuses on a theme of current importance to the movement for Christian unity, and each volume includes academic as well as practical analysis of significant moments in the quest for closer church fellowship and inter-religious dialogue.
