Way of Transformation: Theological Evaluation of the Conciliar Process of Mutual Commitment (Covenant) to Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation, World Council of Churches, 1983-1991 by Geraldine M. Smyth (Paperback, 1995)
The book provides a lively contribution to the ecumenical task of correlating theology and culture, ethics and ecclesiology. Focussing on the World Council of Churches conciliar process of justice, peace and the integrity of creation between the assemblies of Vancouver, 1983, and Canberra, 1991, the author combines historical analysis, theological critique and renewal, and a sensitivity to the role of symbol in seeking a way of transformation in today's church and world.
