no previewIn a footnote in Bonomo’s Incarnation and Sacrament, he quotes Brenner’s description of that profound meeting of two of the greatest minds in 19th century Reformational history:

The meeting of Nevin and Schaff was like the concurrence of two heavenly bodies of the first magnitude. The splendor which ensued is known as the Mercersburg Theology, for these two intellectual giants of Presbyterian-Reformed household of faith wrought out a theological system of singular boldness, relevant to its time distinctively ecumenical, and of unquestioned enduring worth.
