The author argues that the classical and liberal exemplars of Reformed dogmatics are best compared when these two questions are thoroughly examined, and calls into question the contention of Reformed theologians Karl Barth and Emil Brunner that Schleiermachers theological use of the category religion signifies a departure from the tradition of Calvin.

He offers a revised comparative framework that discloses the material and formal similarities between Calvin and Schleiermacher with respect to their employment of the categories religion and revelation and allows the historical theologian to delineate the trajectory from Calvin to Schleiermacher in a way that accounts for both continuity and discontinuity in the transition from classical to modern Protestant theology. This allows the systemic-hermeneutical question of a contemporary Protestant theology informed by the historical and philosophical study of religion to be taken up anew.
