- "This book is the first of two volumes that consider the state and relevance of Reformed theology today in light of the 500-year celebration of the Reformation in 2017. It contains biblical, historical-theological and systematic-theological perspectives on Reformed theology and is specifically aimed at discussing the contemporary relevance of a Reformed theological approach. Though the themes are wide-ranging and by no means exhaustive, it will give the reader a sense of the current debates in Reformed circles and the various approaches followed to address contemporary issues ... True to the Reformed slogan of sola scriptura, Chapters 1-4 deal with biblical interpretation and methodology ... In the spirit of semper Reformanda, Chapters 5-9 discuss various historical-theological and systematic-theological topics such as the 16th-century debates between the Calvinists and Anabaptists, the historical effects of important events during 1516, Luther's concept of paradoxical freedom and the contemporary relevance of Calvin's theocentric approach to anthropology ... The last chapter deals with the dialogue between the Roman Catholic tradition and the Reformed tradition 500 years after the Reformation"--Foreword.
