Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co.One Teacher: Doctrinal Authority in the Church
In this book, "one teacher": Doctrinal Authority in the Church, Le Groupe des Dombes - a widely respected yet unofficial dialogue of Reformed, Lutheran, and Catholic scholars from French-speaking Europe - undertakes a comprehensive study of the complex issue of doctrinal authority in the church, including the role of Scripture, of confessional texts, and of decision-making bodies.
While a number of previous ecumenical dialogues have studied the question of authority with a particular focus on the ministry of the Bishop of Rome, the Groupe des Dombes lays out the complex constellation of questions at issue in the differing ethos of Protestant and Catholic traditions. Its challenge to the churches reflects the agenda of ecumenical dialogue for decades to come.
