Select Works on Christian Unity is a collection of late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century writings on the issue of reunification of the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and Roman Catholic Churches. These five volumes are made up of sermons, letters, and essays, many of which were produced for members of the Association for the Promotion of the Unity of Christendom, an organization dedicated to “united prayer that visible unity may be restored to Christendom.”
Whether it’s correspondence between two parties, comparisons of doctrine, or sermons on the topic of reunion, the authors seek the same purpose: to understand the issues more fully in hopes of restoring unity to the Church. In the first chapter of A Brief Comparison of the Fundamental Doctrines of the Anglican and Greek Churches, Reverend James Oscar Bagdon reflects the hopeful tone found throughout this collection: “Let us unite on the doctrines and practices which we hold in common as undoubted truth, and let all disputed points be regarded as matters of secondary importance.”
Scholars, students of church history, and anyone else interested in the evolution of the church will find this collection enlightening and rewarding. With the Logos edition, this collection is completely searchable and Scripture passages link directly to your preferred English translation and original-language texts; important theological concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
