      A Book Review - One Family under Heaven: A Response to Paradigm
      Shifts in Ecumenism

      by D Babu Paul

      Although Ecumenism is commonly understood as the effort of the
      various Christian denominations to find a common platform to define
      essential Christian unity the scope of the concept goes far beyond a
      mere interdenominational effort to define meeting points. In its
      development the concept first grew to encompass all religions and
      emerge as an effort to promote inter religious understanding. With
      the wide acceptance of the concept of the `integrity of creation'
      Ecumenism also got redefined as a biocentric effort. It could no
      longer be a mere anthropocentric endeavour. Thus Ecumenism which
      began as an interdenominational Christian effort has attained cosmic
      dimensions. In his book "ONE FAMILY UNDER HEAVEN" the Revd. Joseph
      Daniel tries to explain brilliantly this evolution through an
      analysis of the origin, growth and future challenges of the
      Ecumenical Christian Centre. One feels that one is traveling on a
      parallel track with a moving cine camera that captures the various
      frames clearly and well- focused.
