Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church
$69.00

Commissioned in 1993, this translation of The Book of Concord brings a new generation of scholarship and sensitivities to bear on the foundational texts of Lutheran identity. The fifth English translation since 1851, this edition succeeds that edited by Theodore Tappert published in 1959 by Muhlenburg Press.

A review of the text in light of a mountain of new scholarship and other factors dictated the new translation and apparatus, including changes in the English language over the past forty years, differences in the training and preparation of seminarians and pastors, limitations in the introductions and annotations to the various parts of the book, new knowledge of the history and theology of these very documents, and the occasional error in Tappert's translation.

Kolb and Wengert's team of leading Reformation historians was augmented by consultation with one hundred other scholars and teachers who use The Book of Concord continually, and two other teams of scholars who have reviewed the translations. In coming years, two volumes of related documents will follow.

Benefits of this new translation:

Expanded introductions and annotations offer richer historical context

New translation aims at accessible but accurate translation

Format is easier to read and use

Leading American scholars have been involved or consulted

Die Bekenntnisschriften Der Evangelisch-Lutherischen Kirche: Vollstandige Neuedition
$104.99
English summary: For the first time since the publication of the Confessio Augustana in 1930 this volume presents an edited edition of the Confessionals of the Protestant Lutheran Church. It is based on new sources and the results of new theological and historical research. The texts are presented parallel in Early Modern High German and in the Latin original. The critical apparatus reproduces the various readings, and the commentary provides important information for our understanding of both the historical and theological background. German description: Die Bekenntnisschriften der Evangelisch-Lutherischen Kirche orientieren sich an dem Konkordienbuch von 1580, das die innerprotestantischen Lehrkontroversen der zweiten Halfte des 16. Jahrhunderts befrieden und die Evangelischen - auch auf europaischer Ebene - erneut unter einem gemeinsamen Lehrbestand und Bekenntnis einen wollte. Dazu diente zum einen die durch die Konkordienformel vorgenommene Klarung der theologischen Fragen in Interpretation der Confessio Augustana, zum anderen die Zusammenstellung von Bekenntnissen und theologischen Schriften, die uberwiegend aus der Feder Martin Luthers stammten. Dieses "Corpus Doctrinae" bestand aus den drei altkirchlichen Bekenntnissen, der Confessio Augustana invariata und ihrer Apologie, den Schmalkaldischen Artikeln mit dem Tractatus de primatu et potestate papae, dem Kleinen und Grossen Katechismus Luthers, der Konkordienformel und einer Vorrede. Diese Vorrede erlauterte die Entstehungsbedingungen und versuchte letzte Einwande auszuraumen. Sie und damit das gesamte Konkordienwerk wurde von zahlreichen - jedoch nicht von allen - Fursten und Standen, unter ihnen die Kurfursten von Sachsen, Brandenburg und Pfalz, unterschrieben. Das Konkordienbuch wurde am 25. Juni 1580, dem 50. Jahrestag der Ubergabe der Confessio Augustana auf dem Augsburger Reichstag von 1530, veroffentlicht und in den Territorien der Unterzeichner eingefuhrt. Bis heute gilt es in der Form der Bekenntnisschriften der Evangelisch-Lutherischen Kirche als theologisch massgebliches Referenzwerk des Luthertums in der Welt.

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
$39.99
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.

Lutheran Difference (new edition)
$39.99

This book began as a popular eighteen-booklet Bible Study series. In this new work, we gather together all the rich content of the series, order it around the Nicene Creed, and present it in one accessible volume so readers can access the facts they need.

As Lutherans interact with other Christians, they often find themselves struggling to explain their beliefs and practices. Although many Lutherans have learned the "what" of the doctrines of the Church, they do not always have a full scriptural foundation to share the "why." When confronted with different doctrines or denominations, they sometimes cannot clearly state their faith-much less understand the differences.


Because of insecurities about explaining particular doctrines or practices, some Lutherans may avoid opportunities to share what they have learned from Christ and His Word. The Lutheran Difference identifies how Lutherans differ from other Christians and shows from the Bible why Lutherans differ. Such information will prepare Lutherans to share their faith clearly; it will help non-Lutherans understand the Lutheran difference.

This book was written entirely for the lay person but may also serve well as a high school or college religion class text. This resource would be handy for anyone looking for an additional resource beyond Luther's Small Catechism.

This book deals with Reformation theology in terms of its historical context and its relevance to the late 20th-century theological scene.

A New Look at the Lutheran Confessions distinguishes and discusses the significant differences between Roman and Protestant views, particularly those differences pertinent to contemporary ecumenical encounters. The author also explores the relationship between the private writings of Luther and Melanchthon and the confessional writings that they produced between 1529 and 1537.

An introduction to previous works by other scholars in this field precedes chapters dealing with basic topics

  • The Bible, Scripture and tradition
  • Law and Gospel
  • The Trinity
  • Justification
  • The sacraments
  • Ministry and the church
  • Christian life.

    Sources and Contexts of the Book of Concord - POD Not Returnable
    $39.00
    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.
