From the ToC, this looks *excellent*. It includes essays by Sarah Coakley, Rowan Williams, and the Vatican clarification on the filioque. The chronological list of sources starts with Syriac sources! - that's very rare. Of course anthologies have to be selected, but I'm surprised not to see Yves Congar among the contemporary sources, nor any clearly identified contributions from the Pentecostal churches. Still, this definitely goes on my list.
