The Eagle's Nest: Following Jesus - 2

Here is some more information about the Following Jesus document from Australia.

The Eagle's Nest: Following Jesus - 2

It was nearly called "The Barton Declaration", and was similar in ethos to A Message to the People of South Africa published by the South African Council of Churches in 1968.

This has led to some discussion in the Christianity and Society forum about compiling a collection of such documents, which might be useful to church historians, and also to Christians facing conditions in society that call for a Christian response. We already have The Belhar Confession, and are looking for an English translation of The Barmen Declaration pf the Confessing Church in Germany.
