Various theological traditions came together to form the United Church of Christ. This volume of The Living Theological Heritage of the United Church of Christ shows how these traditions justified and claimed their ecumenical vocation.

In the early 1930s the Congregationalists united with the Christians, and the (German) Reformed Church in the U.S. united with the Evangelical Synod of North America. Their experiences, stimulated by new international and national ecumencal developments, inspired them to envision a new church that might fulfill the prayer of Jesus "that they might all be one."

The book charts the long struggle which culminated in the formation of the United Church of Christ in 1957, documenting setbacks and milestones and showing concerns of opponents as well as advocates. When the new denomination was finally born, it was a unique mixture of the theological and organizational legacies of 2,000 years of Christian faith and practice.
