Gerrit Cornelis Berkouwer (1903-1996) was a great master of dogmatic and ecumenical theology. He was a Reformed Protestant thinker, with roots in Dutch neo-Calvinism, a holder of the Chair in Dogmatics (1945-1974) at the Free University, Amsterdam, a position previously held by his two illustrious neo-Calvinist predecessors, Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) and Herman Bavinck (1854-1921). Echeverria provides a much needed in-depth analysis and critique of his theology, particularly his evolving relationship with Catholicism in light of Vatican II. His contention is that Berkouwer's careful and nuanced examination of Catholic theology-as well as possible responses to his critiques-offers important clues for the contemporary ecumenical project.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"With ecumenical dialog between Catholics and evangelical Protestants at what may be an all time high, the forgotten legacy of Gerrit Cornelis Berkouwer has never been more relevant. Few modern Protestants dealt as carefully, fully, or sympathetically with twentieth-century Catholicism as did Berkouwer. Eduardo Echeverria's meticulous study admirably brings Berkouwer's work to a contemporary audience." - Dr. Peter Leithart, Senior Fellow of Theology, New Saint Andrews College, Moscow, Idaho "This is an ecumenically sensitive and historically contextualized study of G. C. Berkouwer, the most important Reformed theologian of the twentieth century next to Karl Barth. Eduardo Echeverria offers here a fresh Catholic engagement with the great Dutch theologian who was at once a deeply committed confessional Protestant and a hopeful interlocutor with the Catholic Church." - Timothy George, founding dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University and general editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture "This fascinating book [is] not just a book in historical theology, but in systematic theology and in practical theology as well, and Echeverria manages to discuss all three aspects without becoming diffuse or complicated." - Herman Selderhuis, in: Theologische Literaturzeitung 139 (2014) 5 "Echeverria's substantial tome is an impressive work. [...] The volume can be recommended for those interested in Berkouwer and in Reformed - Roman Catholic dialogue. For the more general student of systematic theology, Echeverria's work is a good case study in theological dialogue that invites emulation in analogous projects on other theologians and traditions." - Peter-Ben Smit, in: Ecclesiology
