A new book from Dr Eduardo Echeverria

Monday 15th July 2013

On March 1, 2012, Dr Eduardo Echeverria gave a lecture 'Scripture and Tradition in Relation to Revelation and to the Church' ( He has just published a book on the same topic , 'Berkouwer and Catholicism, Disputed Questions'.

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).

Dr Echeverria provides an 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.
