Founded over 45 years ago by Gregory Baum, Canada's preeminent Catholic theologian, the Ecumenist is dedicated to understanding the relationship of theology, society and culture. It encourages the development of "critical theology," that is, theology committed analyzing our society and culture (including religious culture) to expose and counter their dehumanizing trends. The Ecumenist seeks to be faithful to the good news announced by Jesus Christ and the social teaching of the Catholic Church and remains open to dialogue with other Christians, members of the world's religions and people of good will. It hopes to outline a theology that speaks to the great and often terrible events of our times, including war, the Holocaust, colonialism, the ecological crisis, the rise of feminism, and the globalization of the free market system. It has adopted the Church's teaching on the "preferential option for the poor" and seeks to analyze church and society from the perspective of the marginalized and oppressed. The Ecumenist also hopes to inspire people to resist evil, to organize themselves in solidarity with the poor, and to dedicate themselves to living their lives in the service of the common good.
Articles in The Ecumenist often address issues in broader society, such as the economy, religious pluralism, international development, AIDS, the ecological crisis, women's issues, and workers' rights. It often republishes important celestial documents on these topics produced by conferences of bishops, religious communities and individual thinkers. It also addresses issues specific to the Roman Catholic Church, including structures of authority, women's ordination, ethics, ecumenical and interfaith dialogue, teachings on sexuality, and the magisterium. The Ecumenist features some of the most dynamic and interesting religious scholars writing today. The articles are presented in an accessible fashion that is perfect for scholars, students, church leaders as well as lay Christians.
