Together on the Way : Official Report of the Eighth Assembly of the World Council of Churches
Meeting every seven years, the assembly is the highest governing body of the World Council of Churches, to which all member churches are entitled to send delegates.
The assembly receives reports on the work of the WCC during the preceding period, sets broad guidelines for the next seven years and elects from its membership a central committee to govern the Council until its next assembly.
This volume includes the texts of the major addresses and of documents adopted by the delegates at the Eighth Assembly which was held in Harare in 1998.
Also contained are summaries of discussions in plenary sessions and the revised WCC constitution and rules, as well as lists of assembly participants, the new central committee, and WCC member churches and associated councils.
The report begins with an introduction to and analysis of this significant ecumenical event.
