The Anglican Bishop George Bell (of Chichester) and the General
Secretary of the World Council of Churches, Willem A. Visser't
Hooft (of Geneva) exchanged hundreds of letters between 1938 and
1958. The correspondence, reproduced and commented upon here,
mirrors the efforts made across the ecumenical movement to unite
the Christian churches and also to come to terms with an age of
international crisis and conflict. In these first decades of the
World Council, it was widely felt that the Church could make a
noteworthy contribution to the mitigation of political tensions all
over the world. That's why Bell and Visser't Hooft talked not only
to bishops and the clergy, but also to the prime ministers and
presidents of many countries. They raised their voices in memoranda
and published their public letters in important newspapers. This
was the World Council's most successful period.
