“The celebration of the reformation jubilee in 2017, fortunately, will be an ecumenical event. Times of confessional quarrels have passed – differences might still be noted, but not in terms of polemics and principal division. So, Remembering the Reformation: Martin Luther and Catholic Theology is the book right in time: It shows how deep the medieval roots of Luther’s theology are, willingly or not; how catholic theologians dealt with his impact; and, most impressive, what Catholics still are willing to take up from Luther. A book to learn about past and future!”
eBook-Remembering the Reformation: Martin Luther and Catholic Theology
The dramatic unfolding of events after Martin Luther's revolutionary act led to the ultimate, and seemingly irreparable, fissure with Roman Catholicism: excommunication and schism. Remembering the Reformation enters into this history and pursues a more nuanced reading of Luther's relationship with the Catholic tradition, from his Augustinian roots and medieval training to his reading of scripture and investigations of ecclesiology, as well as his continued relevance and challenge to Catholic theology. An international consortium of scholars, Catholic and Protestant, contribute to this volume and provide a thoughtful reimagining of Luther.
