Chapter 2 elucidates Martin Bucer’s missiological and unitive strategy centered on the doctrine of justification. While providing a brief survey of Bucer’s career in Strasbourg, this chapter highlights Bucer’s unitive program based on the idea that if agreement was achieved on this doctrine, then other more peripheral matters could be tolerated. In addition, he believed that agreement on justification would result in a slow reformation from within.
