Abstract

DREYER, Willem A.. The Leuenberg Agreement and church unity: a possible matrix to cross ten seas with?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2009, vol.65, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0259-9422.

This article gives a short historical background to the debate between Lutherans and Calvinists on unity. It is important that this debate should also start in southern Africa. The focus is placed on the Leuenberg Agreement of 1973 as a possible model of unity not only between the Lutheran and Reformed churches in South Africa, but also between all Protestant churches which have historically been divided on the basis of tradition, language and race.

Keywords : Leuenberg agreement; Lutheran Calvinist consultations; southern Africa; cooperation; model for unity.
