Over the last fifty years, Lutherans and Roman Catholics have engaged in profound theological dialogue leading to increasingly close ties between two church bodies that have historically been divided. From Conflict to Communion contains the report produced by the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Commission on Unity along with an accompanying study guide and liturgical material suitable for a joint Catholic-Lutheran worship service.

This book presents the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation as an opportunity for deeper communion between Roman Catholics and Lutherans and for celebration of their common witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Including a timely new introduction by William G. Rusch, this will be a valued resource not only for Lutheran and Catholic theologians but also for people around the world who seek greater unity in the church.
William G. Rusch
— from the introduction
"In an ecumenical age, how should Catholics and Lutherans note the Reformation? . . . From Conflict to Communion can contribute much to an atmosphere of trust and comfort between formerly estranged Catholics and Lutherans that would make future ecumenical reception a reality."
