Faith & Order Paper 149

An analysis of the first 186 official church responses to the "Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry" document.

The BEM document, adopted by the WCC's Faith and Order commission in Lima in 1982, led to a process of discussion, exchange and response of major ecumenical significance. The 186 responses analyzed here constitute the most representative documentation of the ecumenical thinking of the churches with regard to baptism, eucharist and ministry and wider ecumenical issues connected with them. This report does not mark the end of the process but describes some of its major features and results, and seeks to serve the churches in their growing communion with one another.
