An Inquiry into Tension and Coherence in Philipp Melanchthon's Theology and Efforts for Ecclesiastical Unity, Especially in 1527-1530
Reihe: Arbeiten zur Historischen und Systematischen Theologie
Bd. 21, 2016, 530 S., 49.90 EUR, 49.90 CHF, br., ISBN 978-3-643-90630-4

Working with a wide range of relevant sources the book contributes to the discussion of Philipp Melanchthon's profile as an academic and political agent, as a theologian and negotiator, particularly during the Diet of Augsburg 1530. The study provides a background for a historical reading and interpretation of the Augsburg Confession.

"In addition to considerably enhancing our knowledge of Melanchton's work in a particularly decisive time of the Reformation, Andersen has also chosen a topic of undisputable systematic theological and ecumenical relevance." (Professor Knut Alfsvg, School of Mission and Theology, Stavanger, Norway)

Ragnar Andersen is an Evangelical-Lutheran pastor. He holds a Ph. D. degree from MF Norwegian School of Theology, Oslo, 2011.
