Within the whole church, Baptists and Catholics might seem to be ecclesiological and liturgical polar opposites. The two traditions are arguably more dissimilar from one another than each is from almost any other Christian tradition. Yet, as veteran Baptist ecumenist Steven Harmon demonstrates in his forthcoming book Baptists, Catholics, and the Whole Church: Partners in the Pilgrimage to Unity, they share much in common that can enable them to travel together as fellow pilgrims on the journey toward a more visibly united church. Join Steven and leading Catholic ecumenist Paul Murray as they discuss Catholic-Baptist relations and how the Baptist-Catholic encounter can benefit the whole Christian community.
- Steven Harmon is the author of books on ecumenism and Baptist studies that include Towards Baptist Catholicity (2006), Ecumenism Means You, Too (2010), and Baptist Identity and the Ecumenical Future(2016). He is a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship-affiliated ordained Baptist minister, past President of the National Association of Baptist Professors of Religion, and Co-Secretary of the Baptist-Catholic International Dialogue Joint Commission—Phase III.
- Paul Murray is Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean and Director of the Centre for Catholic Studies at Durham University. In 2011 Pope Benedict XVI nominated him to the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC). He was a member of the drafting team for ARCIC III’s 2017 Agreed Statement, “Walking Together on the Way: Learning to Be the Church – Local, Regional, and Universal”, and he now continues to serve as a consultant to the Commission.
