Description

This volume documents the result of a doctrinal conversation which was adopted by the General Assembly of the CPCE in 2012.For the first time since the Reformation the CPCE churches together express here what can be said today about the understanding of the Word of God, Scripture as testimony to the divine speech, the interpretation of the Bible and its relation to Tradition and to the Confessions.

Moreover, the document aims at clarifying how Protestant churches, on the basis of their common understanding of the Gospel, can reach commitments for which they are jointly responsible. Thus it sets an impulse for determining the Protestant position in the ecumenical dialogue and for the binding commitment of the common witness and service of the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe.
