Product Description

At the 500th anniversary of the Wittenberg Reformation, two highly regarded scholars compare and contrast the history and theological positions of the Reformed and Lutheran traditions. Robert Kolb and Carl R. Trueman tackle nine theological topics significant for the life of the church that remain a source of division between the two traditions. Major topics of discussion include law and gospel, the person and work of Christ, and justification and sanctification. The book helps readers evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the Reformed and Lutheran approaches to presenting the biblical message and invites honest, irenic, and open dialogue within the Protestant family.

    October 31st, 2017 was the 500th anniversary of the initiation of the Protestant Reformation. When Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses on the doors of Wittenberg. Since then a large group has formed the Protestant church. Due to Luthers shot heard round the world, Protestantisms break from Catholicism sent ripples to all corners of the world. Yet after Luther made his historic break there were many who agreed with Luther in principle to break from the Catholic Church yet or in disagreement with him on theological issues. One of the most pronounced has become the chasm between Lutheran and reformed theology.

    Is there fitting to have such a book come out during this historic celebration of the Reformation. The book I am referencing is Between Wittenberg and Geneva: Lutheran and Reformed Theology in Conversation by Robert Kolb and Carl R. Truman. Both of these men are respected Scholars in their own historical theological view. Kolb is the Systematic Theology professor at Concordia Seminary while Truman is the professor of historical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary.

    Each of these men have a healthy respect for one another and for the theological position the other holds. It is therefore out of this mutual respect that this book is formed. In between Wittenberg and Geneva the authors discuss eight points of contention between Lutheran and reformed theology. In every chapter each theological position is presented and descended and then contrasted with the other. Each argument and counter-argument are thorough and scholarly yet are accessible enough to the Layman.

    If you are in either theological tradition you will find a plethora of information detailing the theological viewpoint as well as some questions regarding it. As a minister in the reformed tradition I found this work exhilarating and profound in challenging my viewpoints yet at the same time confirming them to be true. I came away with a greater appreciation for Lutheran Theology and for Luther himself, for that matter. From this work a person can come to a a greater understanding of the church as a whole, from understanding the theological roots of their specific tradition. I therefore recommend this work to anyone and everyone who seeks to have a greater understanding of either Lutheran and reformed theology in a form that is both respectful yet sperm in their personal convictions to said theological position. This is a book that you will want to have in your possession, for it truly informs in a way few books, on theology, to this point ever have.
