Church polity as a theological discipline has become
increasingly aware of the challenge of contextuality, due to
secularization in the global North and a renewed awareness
of inherited cultural and religious traditions in the global
South. The ecumenical movement offers a particular framework
for reflection on such developments.

This second conference volume presents thirteen case
studies, from five continents, and covering church polity
issues from perspectives like practical theology, civil law,
and missiology. Another volume presents a number of
ecclesiological and historical reflections.
