I have recently encountered two interesting articles, and was wondering if there may be some convergence between Catholicism and certain strains of Evangelicalism going on… What do you think? (No need to read the articles, just opinions)
Evangelicals and the Mother of God by Timothy George, First Things
This formidable theologian discusses why it is time for evangelicals to recover a fully biblical appreciation for the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Can we, without forsaking any of the evangelical essentials, including the great solas of the Reformation, echo Elizabeth’s acclamation, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!” . . . ?
The Shape of Faith by Nathan Bierma, Christianity Today
The sign of the cross is a reminder of whose we are.
. . . this previously ignorant Protestant, for one, has decided to introduce the sign of the cross into his daily prayer, as a link with the early church, a sign of God’s claim on me, and a reminder of the mystery of the Trinity.
