 Soft Evangelicals and the Heretical Church

Show Summary Details


Reformation principles have made conservative evangelicals unable to view the Catholic Church as positively related to the Pauline gospel of free grace, as in some sense a Christian church. However, some evangelicals have managed it. This chapter examines the figures representative of the very Reformed tradition that has historically judged Rome to be an apostate church.
