In 1586, six years after the Book of Concord was published, Lutheran theologian Jakob Andreae and Calvinist French Reformed theologian Theodore Beza met to debate the differences between the two confessions. Their debate centered on the Lord's Supper, the person of Christ, Baptism, art and music in churches, and predestination. These are the classic issues between these two Protestant confessions, and this is the classic debate between two leading theologians of the second generation of the Reformation.
Newly translated into English, Lutheranism vs. Calvinism shows the distinctive doctrines of Lutheranism and Calvinism and, more generally, shows how to defend the Christian faith in debate.
Pastors, historians, and educated laity will want to read for themselves how Lutherans and Calvinists discussed the differences between them in the 16th century in order to understand what makes their confession of the Christian faith distinctive.
