"An 'evangelical Catholic ecumenist' of the main appealing type, Eduardo Echeverria engages in a discussion among Catholicism and neo-Calvinism that's involved, both, with love and with fact. With a historical past either in neo-Calvinist and Catholic concept, Echeverria monitors the theological riches of either traditions.

"Although the temptation of a few, either Protestant and Catholic, might be to brush aside the potential of one of these 'dialogue,' fortunately the times of deep mistrust are earlier. certainly, we might confirm, within the spirit of Dorothy Sayers, that the 'drama is within the dogma' whereas while taking Christian team spirit heavily. Our Lord's excessive priestly prayer, as recorded in John 17, impels all who love our Lord's church to hunt solidarity in the bounds of orthodoxy. This, i'm thrilled to claim, is the load of Eduardo Echeverria, who greater than someone i do know, embodies what it skill to be a real 'evangelical Catholic ecumenist.' learn his wonderfully elucidating argument and discover why."
