The End of Protestantism: one man's plan to unite a divided church

The End of Protestantism Pursuing Unity in a Fragmented Church by Peter Leithart is a deep look into the history and origins of Protestantism in the world and in America. Mr. Leithart lays out a plan to reunite all churches and Christians in one church as Jesus prayed for in John 17:21. He suggests church reforms which are more biblically based than in tradition. His plan, Reformational Catholicism, had four movements or points. First, a vision for a reformational catholic church which expresses a biblical and a reformational paradigm for evangelical unity. Second, he argues the pros and cons of denominational Christianity. Third, he presents evidence that the divided church is dissolving. Finally, his plan for a united church and the demolishment of denominational identity. 

The End of Protestantism is an interesting historical and modern evaluation of the function of the Church. While I didn’t agree with all of Mr. Leithart’s assertions, he does present great insights into the church and how Christians can move forward in an ever-changing world. If you are interested in a brief history of the church, how it has functioned and a plan for its survival, I recommend The End of Protestantism.
