Augsburg Confession: Renewing Lutheran Faith and Practice
$29.00

The Augsburg Confession is the single most-important confession of faith among Lutherans today. However, it is often taught either from a historical perspective or from a dogmatic one. Yet the context out of which it arose was far more practical and lively: marked from the outset as confessions of faith in the face of fierce opposition and threats. The original princely signers, while clearly outlining the teaching of their churches, were also staking their lives on the witness to the gospel that had been emanating from Wittenberg since 1517, when Martin Luther first published his Ninety-Five Theses. By situating both the history and the theology of this document within the practice and life of faith, Timothy J. Wengert shows just how relevant the Confession's witness is for today's Lutheran parishes and their leaders by unlocking how its articles can shape and strengthen the church's witness today.

Catechetical Discourse

Catechetical Discourse (St Gregory of Nyssa)
$28.00

St Gregory of Nyssa wrote the Catechetical Discourse as a handbook for his catechists, to help them defend and articulate the foundations of the faith, the Trinity, creation and the image of God, the fall and the nature of evil, the saving work of Christ, and the sacraments of baptism and the Eucharist. The Discourse draws upon the previous tradition--especially Origen, St Methodius of Olympus, and, above all, St Athanasius' On the Incarnation (PPS 44)--and influences later fathers like St John of Damascus in his On the Orthodox Faith (translation coming soon to SVS Press).

This complex work is also known for its ambiguous relationship to Origen's universalism, perhaps including the idea that the devil himself will be saved. The translator's introduction places this question, and a clear understanding of the Catechetical Discourse in general, in the context of St Gregory's use of rhetoric, his other writings and the broader patristic tradition.

    Church and the Office of the Ministry
    $49.99

    Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison's new edition of this seminal writing by the first president of the LCMS restores Walther's precise language on the doctrines of church and ministry. As the subtitle of the original German edition states, The Church and The Office of The Ministry is "a collection of testimonies . . . from the Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and from the private writings of orthodox teachers of the same." Professional church workers and interested lay members will find a wealth of insights from the Bible, the Confessions, ancient church fathers, Luther, the orthodox Lutheran fathers, and more on the key questions of what or who is the Church, what is and who holds the Office of the Ministry, and what are the powers and duties of each.


    During the 20th century, the ecumenical movement made the doctrine of the church one of the most discussed issues of its day. Today, this controversy still exists with congregations exploring the boundaries of what it means to define the church. C.F.W. Walther's classic study of The Church and The Office of The Ministry provides biblically-based answers to these questions facing congregations today.


    This new study edition includes:

  • New reader-friendly updated translation
  • Footnotes explaining terms and history
  • Side notes highlighting texts from the Bible, Lutheran Confessions and Martin Luther
  • Marginal references to Johann Gerhard
  • Glossary of key German and Latin terms
  • Appendices including supporting documents
  • Scriptural index
  • Topical index

    Commentary on Luther's Catechism, Lord's Prayer
    $46.99

    The German edition of Commentary on Luther's Catechisms by Albrecht Peters has long been the gold standard of research on the catechetical texts of the great reformer. This translation makes the wealth of research available in English for both the researcher and the catechist. Separate volumes address the Decalogue, the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Sacraments, and Confession with the Table of Duties, prayers, and the Marriage and Baptismal Booklets.

    For Luther, God's action in creation, redemption, sanctification, justification, and prayer are inseparably tied together with one another, and all true prayer finds the seed around which it can crystallize in the Lord's Prayer. The reformer develops these central insights throughout his several different explanations of the Lord's Prayer. This book shows what types of changes took place in Luther's explanations before reaching the present form in the catechisms and provides the needed context of Luther's interpretation within that of the Western tradition.

This translation makes the wealth of research available in English for both the researcher and the catechist. Separate volumes address the Decalogue, the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Sacraments, and Confession with the Table of Duties, prayers, and the Marriage and Baptismal Booklets.

    In this volume, an overview of Luther's sacramental thinking in general is followed by treatments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Peters clarifies the central role played by the Sacraments in the life of the Church, showing how the Lord's Supper is integral to worship and how Baptism is more than just a right of admission; it is a powerful way in which God applies the benefits of Christ individually to effect the new creation.

    Divine Rhetoric: The Sermon on the Mount as Message and as Model in Augustine, Chrysostom, and Luther
    $19.00
    Of the many themes that Classical Antiquity and Early Christianity had in common, for all their profound differences, none was more influential than their love of language. It was the Greek and Roman rhetorical theorists who called the attention of later generations to the importance of speech and language. Likewise, when the author of the Fourth Gospel needed a comprehensive metaphor to describe the eternal significance of Jesus Christ, he turned to speech, calling him the Logos -- the Word and Reason of God, through whom the universe was made and by whom it was upheld.

    What would happen when these two systems of interpreting persuasive language collided -- and yet in some sense converged? To answer that question, this book examines three interpretations of the most universally acknowledged piece of rhetoric in the history of the West, the Sermon on the Mount: from the Latin and Catholic tradition (St Augustine), the Greek and Orthodox tradition (St John Chrysostom), and the Reformation and Protestant tradition (Martin Luther). Each is acknowledged in his tradition as a "prince of the pulpit." Together and yet separately, they illuminate both the Sermon and the Speaker for anyone who still takes the challenge of the faith -- and of language -- seriously.
