Emilio Castro, wrote in his preface to the first edition:

“The energy of the ecumenical movement has always been the creative visions, solemn covenants, courageous engagements and fervent prayers of countless women and men, churches and groups. But the ecumenical story is also one of meetings and reports and documents, programmes and declarations and statements, theological convergences and pastoral guidelines. As this movement has,

by God’s grace, grown and expanded, the amount of written material with which one must be acquainted in order effectively to build on the past would fill a good-sized library. For those without ready access to such documentary resources, this Dictionary of the Ecumenical Movement will be indispensable; even for those who have such access it will provide a reliable starting point for their explorations.”
