(p.122) 9 Receptive Catholic Learning Through Methodist—Catholic Dialogue
Receptive Ecumenism and the Call to Catholic Learning

Michael E. Putney

Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at the Methodist–Catholic dialogue over the past forty years to show the relationship between divided Christians and the potential for a new way of reconciling them. The most recent phase of the dialogue sought to harvest the work of previous phases and, in the light of what has been achieved, to deepen and extend the recognition that each communion is able to offer the other. A deliberate attempt has been made to describe the elements of each communion which represent to the others' eyes, genuine elements of the church of Christ. This recognition is of an extraordinary depth and breadth which none would have imagined even a few decades ago.
