Christs Gift Our Response


Sacramental theology has often been a challenging area of conversation between Catholics and Protestants. In Christ’s Gift, Our Response, Benjamin Durheim envisions a collaborative way forward, forging a conversation between two contemporary approaches to the connection between sacraments and ethics.

Drawing primarily from Louis-Marie Chauvet and the Finnish school of Luther interpretation, Durheim constructs a mutually enriching theological dialogue. Beyond comparison and contrast, this is an attempt to draw these theologies together as sources for each other, rather than as competitors.

Benjamin Durheim received his PhD from Boston College and is an adjunct instructor of theology at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. He has published articles on liturgical and sacramental theology, especially as they relate to issues of Christian identity and ecumenical conversation.
