Reforming the Catholic Tradition


A collection of essays on the theme of Reformed catholicity, most adapted from papers presented at the sixth annual Convivium Irenicum.


Cardinal Newman once stated that to be deep in church history is to cease to be Protestant. These essays argue that, on the contrary, to be Protestant is simply to be a principled catholic. We embrace God’s calling to maturity by learning to be active participants in the universal church as it grows into fuller understanding of God’s revelation. This includes both a deference to our learned forefathers and a willingness to be confronted with new insight into God’s revelation. Taken together, this collection of essays constitute an invitation into this great project, which has its end in the glory of the Lord Jesus, and the freedom of His chosen saints.
