As the title of this learned collection of essays suggests, "catholicity" was the true intent of the Reformation. The Reformers did not set out to create what later came to be known as Protestant Christianity. Theirs was a quest for reformation and renewal in continuity with the "one holy catholic and apostolic church" of ancient times.

This informed and informative book continues the appeal of previous voices that have pointed out the catholic intention of the Reformation -- such voices as those of Friedrich Heiler, Philip Schaff, and Paul Tillich, to name only a few -- and calls the heirs of the Reformation, both pastors and churches, to be faithful to the evangelical and catholic elements of the great Christian tradition.
