Since the sixteenth century, the Protestant tradition has been divided.

if there were 6 stars to evaluate this book, I would give it 6! This is the best I have read in evaluating the differences between Lutheranism and Calvinism. I would wish that all Calvin's followers might read it with an open mind.

Excellent comparison of Reformed and Lutheran theology

Jordan Cooper, a Lutheran pastor, does an excellent job of comparing and contrasting Reformed and Lutheran theology. He fairly represented Reformed theology which is the tradition I've been a part of for nearly 30 years. In his description of Lutheran theology he referenced Luther, the Formula of Concord, and theologians both modern and from the time of the Reformation. The book was well written and well documented.

Excellent Book

Pastor Jordon Cooper is the primary reason I left Reformed Theology for Lutheranism. This book, unlike any other I've read on the subject, lays out the distinctions between Reformed Theology and Lutheranism in a way that even the average layman like myself can understand.
