Rather than focusing inward, Tveit envisions an ecumenism that leverages the Christ-inspired unity of the global fellowship into transformative engagement with the world. He shows how the recent journey of the Christian fellowship reframes its diversity and differences through solidarity in witness and service.
In the preface, Tveit explains that he is offering visions of what Christian unity might mean for our faith and for the human future. “In fact, I believe in the tremendous potential of Christian churches united in love and solidarity to heal and rescue our one human family,” he writes. “We live in a time when the churches and the world are in desperate need of people committed to fellowship and solidarity in multilateral relations and organizations.”
