Doctrine of Faith: A Study of the Augsbury Confession

product image
$33.99
The Doctrine of Faith is invaluable for understanding the theological dimension of today's ecumenical dialogues. Beck takes you back to the sixteenth century for painstaking and incisive exegesis of the doctrine of justification by grace through faith for Christ's sake. His careful analysis is based on the historical source documents and Melanchthon's finished confession itself. He compares the Augsburg Confession to modern ecumenical dialogs.

Historical Introductions to the Lutheran Confessions

Historical Introductions to the Lutheran Confessions
$35.99
The history of the Lutheran Confessions is the story of men and women who risked everything, and in some cases died, for the sake of the truth of God's Word. Friederich Bente tells the dramatic story of their joys and sorrows, their defeats and victories, their fear and their courage, with a wealth of detailed first-hand reports and eyewitness accounts of the events, people, and places that make up the dramatic history of the Lutheran Confessions. Lutheran Christians who fail to remember their history are cast adrift in an increasingly stormy sea of controversy, division, and disregard for our Lord's Word and Sacraments. What is more, they rob themselves of the opportunity to thank and praise the Lord of the Church for His rich and varied blessings through specific persons, events, places, and times.

Sources and Contexts of the Book of Concord - POD Not Returnable
$34.00
Born in controversy and raised in university settings, the Lutheran reform movement was embroiled immediately, publicly, and perennially in theological disputes and political battles. While controversies during Martin Luther's lifetime centered on disagreements with Rome and Geneva, present and later differences emerged over interpreting Luther's and Melanchthon's theologies on such issues as governmental interference, liturgical practices, justification's implications for good works and sin, the Lord's supper, and election. It is this defining dis-concord, alternating with attempts at concord and conciliation, that is reflected in the documents newly translated in this indispensable documentary companion to The Book of Concord, which includes the works of Agricola, Eck, Chemnitz, Melanchthon, and Luther.
