Product Description

After centuries of sometimes bloody conflict, Lutherans and Catholics converged in 1999 to issue the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification. Catholic scholar John A. Radano, followed the trajectory of this agreement from its beginnings in 1961 at Vatican II, and this book Lutheran & Catholic Reconciliation on Justification traces the role and contribution of the Holy See in making the accord successful. As such, the book focuses mainly on Catholic contributions, but also illuminates those actions by Lutherans that were critical to making the accord a success.

Publisher's Description

After centuries of estrangement between Lutherans and Catholics, new ecclesial relationships began at Vatican II and continued to develop during the following decades. In this broader context, Lutheran and Catholic Reconciliation on Justification traces the evolution of the 1999 Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification. While describing the steps that led to the Declaration and showing the Lutheran initiatives indispensable for making those steps, John Radano pays particular attention to the Holy See’s contributions.

Editorial Reviews

Cardinal Walter Kasper
president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity
"For those who wish to know how it came about and what it means, Monsignor Radano's book on the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification is essential reading. As head of the Western Section of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Jack Radano had an inside view of the process, and his knowledge is precise and objective. His personal ecumenical experience over decades makes him an excellent judge of the ecclesial and ecumenical importance of the Joint Declaration in its lasting influence on the quest for Christian unity."

Jared Wicks, S.J.
John Carroll University
"John Radano gives a moving formulation of the shared confession of faith and the doctrine that is the heart of the Joint Declaration. . . This welcome addition to ecumenical studies narrates a significant case of the Catholic Church's present role in the ecumenical movement as a major player. . . Some Catholics doubt the doctrinal accuracy of what the Joint Declaration affirms on justification. Radano's book should give them pause, for he shows that the Declaration's text arose in a process in which those holding the Catholic teaching office participated in sustained ways."
