"An 'evangelical Catholic ecumenist' of the main appealing kind, 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 idea, Echeverria screens the theological riches of either traditions. He exhibits that, real adjustments notwithstanding--on Church, sacraments, and the connection among religion and reason--Catholic and neo-Calvinist theologians have each cause to pursue a discussion of love."
"Although the temptation of a few, either Protestant and Catholic, could be to push aside the potential for any such 'dialogue,' fortunately the times of deep mistrust are prior. certainly, we may perhaps verify, within the spirit of Dorothy Sayers, that the 'drama is within the dogma' whereas while taking Christian cohesion heavily. Our Lord's excessive priestly prayer, as recorded in John 17, impels all who love our Lord's church to hunt cohesion in the bounds of orthodoxy. This, i'm thrilled to assert, is the load of Eduardo Echeverria, who greater than someone i do know, embodies what it potential to be a real 'evangelical Catholic ecumenist.' learn his wonderfully elucidating argument and discover why."
