The Ecumenical Trio of Virtues
"Geoffrey Wainwright is a master of bringing together complex elements into a new combination that reveals fresh theological and ecumenical insights. In the modest span of these lectures, he touches on a wide range of topics with his characteristic learning and wisdom. They show again that ecumenical theology still has much to teach us about the faith we share." -- Michael Root, Ordinary Professor of Systematic Theology, Catholic University of America "This is liturgical theology at its best, showing how for faith, ethics, and eschatology, classic Christian worship remains essential." -- Maxwell E Johnson, Professor of Liturgical Studies, University of Notre Dame "In the midst of what some are calling an 'ecumenical winter,' Faith, Hope and Love is like a burst of new life indicating there is indeed a new ecumenical spring breaking out all around us. Professor Wainwright shows us how to put into practice the words he quotes from John Wesley: 'If we cannot as yet think alike in all things, at least we may love alike.'" -- Dale T Irvin, President & Professor of World Christianity, New York Theological Seminary Wainwright's volume is an essential read for all those committed to the unity of the body of Christ. -- Neal D. Presa -- The Ecumenical Review ...Readers will find affirmation from Wainwright's illuminating presentation and admonition from the careful way he presses the right questions with freshness, passion, and purpose. -- David Batchelder -- Worship
