A Journey of Faith: The Assemblies of the World Council of Churches  (long version)
It has been said that each of the ten assemblies since the World Council of Churches came into being in 1948 has presented the opportunity for the WCC to reconstitute itself. They also reflect changes in the development of world Christianity.
