This book deals with Reformation theology in terms of its historical context and its relevance to the late 20th-century theological scene.
A New Look at the Lutheran Confessions distinguishes and discusses the significant differences between Roman and Protestant views, particularly those differences pertinent to contemporary ecumenical encounters.
