This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to outline significant moments that shaped the Patriarch's ecumenical conscience and theological principles, which have enabled him to articulate “the truth in love.” It presents a timeline of the Patriarch's career, complemented by passages from three exceptional theologians—the late Professor Olivier Clément (an extraordinarily insightful and inspiring French theologian and historian, who interviewed His All Holiness in preparation for a book), His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America (a senior and revered hierarch and scholar of the Orthodox Church, who in his diverse roles representing His All Holiness has comprehended and embraced the vision of the Ecumenical Patriarchate), and Dr. Samuel Kobia (former general secretary of the World Council).

Keywords: Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew; timeline; Olivier Clément; Archbishop Demetrios of America; Samuel Kobia
