JUSTIFICATION IN ECUMENICAL DIALOGUE: an assessment of the results Martien E. Brinkman During the past decade remarkable ecumenical results have been achieved on the doctrine of justification. A case in point are especially the North American and German Lutheran-Roman Catholic dialogues.' The results of these two dialogues together formed the basic material for a third document: Church and Justification of the international Lutheran-Roman Catholic dialogue commission. On the basis of the agreement reached in these documents there is the serious intention, both from the Lutheran and the Roman Catholic side, to issue a joint declaration in 1997 - 450 years after the promulgation of the decree about the doctrine of justification by the Tridentine Council - revoking the mutual condemnations with respect to the doctrine of justification. This intention confronts us at least with two important questions. In the first place the question arises of the exact content of the agreement. What exactly are the points of controversy one has mutually agreed on? In the second place this agreement raises the question of relevance. How relevant is the content of the doctrine of justification for our Christian reflection today ?3 The Content of the Current Agreement on the
