To love your neighbours church as your own, is a book in which Swedish pastor and theologian Peter Halldorf describes a way for the Church to manifest its unity in a tangible way to a world in need of healing. Peter Halldorf wrote the book as a response to a personal meeting with Pope Francis in 2015. The author says that if we are to hope for the visible expression of unity in the Church then we need to deepen our dependence on the Holy Spirit and focus our attention on Jesus Christ and the mystery of the cross.
This book will engage those who:
- Have a heart for the unity of the Church.
- Are curious about the nature of the Church.
- Appreciates a short and concise read packed full with good information.
- Are looking for a resource in how to engage with other Christian communions.
From the book:
“What does it mean to love my neighbour’s church as well as my own? Can the Pentecostal see the Roman Catholic as someone who may enrich their own faith experience? Can the Roman Catholic see the Pentecostal in this light? If that is the case, we cannot distance ourselves from each other any longer. Naturally, this will require great effort and attentive listening. Above all, it presumes a great respect for the Holy Spirit, who blows where He wills and uses who He wills when He wills. Before we reach this point of impartial listening we have to leave all our prestige, all our pride and all our self- defence with the abandoned Christ on the cross.”
