Catholics and Protestants: What Can We Learn from Each Other?

Peter Kreeft 
Ignatius Press, 204 pages

October 31 marks 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenberg, Germany, an act that sparked the Reformation. Can divided Christendom ever be healed?

Ecumenical progress seems slow, but philosophy professor Peter Kreeft believes Christian unity is possible if we build upon common beliefs. He sees the biggest obstacle as already having been resolved with the 1999 “Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification,” the fruit of a Lutheran-Catholic dialogue involving mutual listening, honesty and charity.

We can resolve other dividing issues similarly, Kreeft holds, always mindful that unity is Christ’s will. His book provides encouragement for making that happen.
