by D Babu Paul

ONE FAMILY UNDER HEAVEN: A Response to Paradigm Shifts in EcumenismBy Joseph DanielISPCK 2008Pages 123, Price Rs. 135/=Although Ecumenism is commonly understood as the effort of the various Christian denominations to find a common platform to define essential Christian unity the scope of the concept goes far beyond a mere interdenominational effort to define meeting points. In its development the concept first grew to encompass all religions and emerge as an effort to promote inter religious understanding. With the wide acceptance of the concept of the ‘integrity of creation’ Ecumenism also got redefined as a biocentric effort. It could no longer be a mere anthropocentric endeavour. Thus Ecumenism which began as an interdenominational Christian effort has attained cosmic dimensions, in his book “ONE FAMILY UNDER HEAVEN”
