Looking back on the School of Ecumenics

ise_cover_01.jpgIn the Rite & Reason column in the Irish Times (subscription) on 1 April 2008, Cambridge professor David Ford recommends The Irish School of Ecumenics, 1970-2007, edited by Michael Hurley SJ. It will be launched in the Milltown Institute by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin on Thursday 3 April at 7.30 pm. Prof. Ford is voluble in his praise for Michael Hurley himself. “He was ahead of his time,” Ford writes, “in how he brought ecumenism among churches together with interfaith dialogue and dedication to religious, political and cultural reconciliation across some of the deepest differences in our world.” Among the contributors to the book are Robin Boyd, John D’Arcy May, Geradline Smyth OP, and the current head of ISE, Linda Hogan. It is available from Columba Press.
