Editorial Reviews

Sixteenth Century Journal
This volume should prove of great interest not only to Lutheran or Reformation scholars but also to anyone interested in the state of Christianity today.... Thought provoking.
First Things
The essays in this volume present fine examples of the theological work that results when the Reformation's catholicity and commitment to the unity of the Church are properly valued and when the need for genuine renewal and reform is positioned by Protestants for Protestantism.... The authors anthologized by Carl Braaten and Robert Jenson, however, show what continuing reform and ecumenical seriousness might require.
