“How can the church be the symphony of redemption when its musicians interpret the composition so differently that is sounds more like a wild cacophony than a harmonious concert? The world wonders. And so do we.” So asks Michael Horton in the opening chapter of "Evangelicals, Catholics, and Unity." Isn’t it time for Roman Catholics and evangelicals to finally lay aside their differences and achieve a unified front against secularism? Why are these two groups still divided after all these centuries? Didn’t the Lutherans and Roman Catholics come together already with a joint declaration? As Mark Noll has asked, “Is the Reformation over?” “All this has been confusing and troubling for many believers,” writes Horton, “who sincerely long for greater visible unity among Christ’s flock. We wish for unity but cannot willingly surrender essential truth in order to accomplish a false peace. For those who care about such truth, Christian unity must be a marriage made in heaven, not a merger or acquisition made on earth.” In this compact and thoughtful book, Michael Horton asks if evangelicals can be considered catholic and Roman Catholics evangelical. In six succinct chapters, he helps readers navigate these troubled waters, coming to the conclusion that not only was the Reformation necessary almost five hundred years ago, this important debate continues even today.
