Standing firm

In an influential book, Mark Noll and Carolyn Nystrom ask Is the Reformation over?

They do not provide a one-word answer to the question, but their reply seems to consist of three elements. First, they believe that Rome has changed, resulting in extensive agreement with Protestants. Second, they find that there remain Reformation differences that have not been resolved. But, third, despite these differences, the gap has narrowed to such an extent that the anathemas of the Reformation can be withdrawn and replaced by fraternal acceptance.
