More progress toward unity between Catholics and Protestants has been made in the last 50 years than in the past 500 years, according to Boston College Professor of Philosophy Peter Kreeft, author of the new book Catholics and Protestants: What Can We Learn from Each Other? (Ignatius Press, 2017). Kreeft’s book explores the theological divisions that have historically separated Catholics and Protestants and the important beliefs that the two groups share in common. He says the style of the book—short answers, single points to ponder rather than long strings of argument—is that of Pascal, Nietzsche, Solomon, and Jesus. Kreeft, who has been on the faculty at BC for more than 50 years, is the author of dozens of books, including Angels and Demons; The Philosophy of Tolkien; Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Heaven But Never Dreamed of Asking, and The Philosophy of Jesus, among many others. He was recently interviewed by The Christian Post.
