Advancing strong, scholarly discussion on the Holy Spirit and the church in the context of the ecumenical movement, six theologians in five different churches offer new theological and pastoral insights into the work of the Holy Spirit in the churches of Christianity, in ecumenism, and in witness. This book draws from, and is applicable to, clergy formation, preaching, lay discipleship, church-world relations, social mission, congregational life, grass-roots ecumenical cooperation, and witness to Christ and the gospel by racial minorities.

A new theology of peace that renders the just war theory near mute by making Jesus and his teachings the cornerstone of both theory and practice.
by Rev. Thomas Hughson, S.J.
Many Christians see the societal dimension of their faith as a matter of biblical and social ethics. Returning to classical Christology, this book explores messianic potential in the Council of Chalcedon on the divine identity of Christ, argues a doctrinally traditional, orthodox basis for Christian participation in the public sphere on behalf of social justice, and addresses a situation internal to churches in the U.S. from a Catholic perspective yet not without analogies in other churches and Christian movements.

Gandhi and Jesus is an insightful look at Christian salvation in light of Gandhi's idea of nonviolent resistance. While Christianity has described salvation as "Jesus making satisfaction for humanity's sin," this has paradoxically led to an increase in and acceptance of violence. To Gandhi, however, a commitment to nonviolence was at the center of what Jesus taught, lived and died for and influenced his own teachings on satyagraha. Reflecting on what Gandhi, a confirmed Hindu, took from the life and teachings of Jesus is very illuminating.
