Volume: 6 Issue: 2 Date: Autumn 2000
Interchurch marriages confront the Christian churches with important challenges. While the separation of the Christians becomes even more tangible and more painful in the intimate sphere of a household, such cross-denominational unions bring the churches at the same time together in a unique way.

Cassidy, and Rev. Dr. Konrad Raiser, General Secretary of the World Council of Churches in Geneva.
