The Baptist World Alliance invited the Anglican Consultative Council to undertake a five-year programme of bi-lateral conversations with them between 2000 and 20005. The conversations did not aim to overcome theological difference, but rather to explore the way in which Christian faith and witness is shared by Anglicans and Baptists in different regions of the world. The Report Conversations around the World 2000 to 2005 was published in 2005 and is in two parts. The first part of the book explores themes of theological convergence and difference, while the second part sets out some of the creative ways in which Anglicans and Baptists have engaged in co-operation in life and mission across the globe.
A summary of the Conversations between 2000-2005 about Continuity; Confessing the Faith; Mission and Ministry; Baptism and Initiation; Membership of the Church; the Eucharist; Oversight; Recognition. All these themes are illustrated with stories gathered from around the world.
