Overview

"For Fries and Rahner unity is no longer an option but a matter of the very credibility and survival of the Christian faith. They are pessimistic that, all good will notwithstanding, those in leadership positions will bring about a unity of the churches in the near future. Yet they see objective possibilities for the attainment of a far-reaching unity. To this end they propose eight theses and elaborate on them."
—Hans Schwarz, author of Method and Context as Problems for Contemporary Theology: Doing Theology in an Alien World
