Always lucid, often challenging, this book will stimulate thought and discussion beyond confessional lines.

In Part I, Braaten assesses Luther’s view of justification and its subsequent interpretation by orthodoxy, by Calvin, by Ritschl and Harnack, by Tillich, and by Barth. In Part II, the discussion turns to ecumenical dialogues on justification and the relation of the doctrine to evangelization, to the distinction between law and gospel, to pastoral care, and to the church’s involvement in secular issues.
