What's the difference between a Lewis and Bronsted acid and base?

A Lewis acid is an electron pair acceptor and a Lewis base is an electron pair donor. Whereas, a Bronsted acid is a proton donor and a Bronsted base is a proton acceptor.

Lewis and Bronsted acids/Lewis and Bronsted bases are the same thing, just different ways of viewing them.

Same concept, just named after different people/theories.
