The largely learn writer and thinker Peter Kreeft provides a special e-book in regards to the very important ideals that Catholics and Protestants percentage in universal. encouraged by means of Christ's prayer for team spirit within the Gospel of John and Saint John Paul II's encyclical Ut Unum Sint, Kreeft demonstrates that Christian reunification is feasible. whereas he recognizes that there are nonetheless major ameliorations among Catholics and Protestants, he emphasizes that they agree at the unmarried most crucial factor: justification.
The sort of this e-book is modeled on Pascal, Solomon, and Jesus: brief solutions and unmarried issues to give some thought to instead of lengthy strings of argument. The writing is direct, easy, and confrontational, yet vertically instead of horizontally by way of "directing arrows now not opposed to one another (Protestant or Catholic) yet opposed to our personal hearts and minds and wills."
The objective of this e-book, writes Kreeft, is to be "like an Australian sheepdog, herding and hectoring Christ's separated sheep again to His face. for that's the one method they could ever go back again to every other."
