“Ecclesiology and Ethics in Africa” is the theme of the latest issue of The Ecumenical Review, the quarterly journal of the World Council of Churches (WCC). The content includes principal presentations made at a June 2015 conference on Ecclesiology and Ethics: the State of Ecumenical Theology in Africa, held at the University of Western Cape in South Africa.

The issue, co-edited by scholars Ernst Conradie, Hans Engdahl and Isabel Apawo Phiri, sets out “to assess the state of the current debate in ecumenical theology in the African context and to engage the current generation of African theologians and ecumenical leaders” on the topic of eccesiology (the doctrinal understanding of the Church) and social ethics.

Among the authors represented in Ecumenical Review are Archbishop Thabo Makgoba of Cape Town, Musa Dube, Roderick Hewitt, André Karamaga, Sarojini Nadar, Jerry Pillay and Vuyani Vellem.
