:

Five hundred years ago, a Catholic monk nailed a list of grievances on the door of a church in Germany and launched a revolution in the history of Christianity. Today there continues to be a number of unresolved issues between the Protestant and Catholic churches, and many experience this ongoing division within their family and among friends and neighbors.

Written in an accessible and informative style, Gregg Allison and Chris Castaldo provide a brief and clear guide to the key points of unity and divergence between Protestants and Catholics today. They write to encourage fruitful conversation about the key theological and sociological differences between the two largest branches of the Christian Church.

From the revolutionary events 500 years ago that sparked the Reformation to today, Unfinished Reformation takes a nuanced and thoughtful look at doctrine, practice, and how Protestants and Catholics can have fruitful discussions about the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Essential Reading to Understand What Divides Catholics and Protestants
5 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Jan 03 2017
In this helpful book, Allison and Castaldo provide a clear and concise guide on what unites and divides Catholics and Protestants 500 years after the Reformation. On what unites the two largest branches of Christianity, the authors highlight ten theological commonalities relating to the triune God, the nature of God, the revelation of God, the person of Jesus Christ, the saving work of Christ, the Holy Spirit, the glory and travesty of human beings, salvation being initiated by God, God making us His people, and the living hope. Despite these commonalities, however, there are pertinent issues which continue to divide Protestants and Catholics. These include issues on Scripture, Tradition, Authority, the Image of God, Mortal and Venial Sins, the person of Mary, the Sacraments, Justification, Assurance of Salvation, Good Works and Purgatory. Because the authority and integrity of Scripture and the Gospel of Jesus Christ are at stake, Allison and Castoldo contend that the Reformation is not and can never be finished. There needs to be ongoing dialogues between Catholics and Protestants to address these fundamental issues. This book is a must-read for those who want to understand the issues dividing Catholicism and Protestantism. Highly recommended!
