October 31 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, which split the Catholic Church. Dr. Peter Kreeft, a Catholic convert himself and author of CATHOLICS AND PROTESTANTS: What We Can Learn From Each Other, says that Protestants and Catholics are not as far apart as it seems.
But can the differences between the two Christian sects be overcome? Can they be unified?
Kreeft acknowledges in CATHOLICS AND PROTESTANTS that the differences are indeed significant yet emphasizes that they agree on the important issue of justification.
Dr. Kreeft is honest and fair in the book, noting that overcoming differences would be difficult, but Protestants and Catholics need to stop “directing arrows not against each other but against our own hearts and minds and wills.”
