Lord's Service

Lord's Service
$32.00
Worship in the Old Testament has been frequently misunderstood. Its rites and ceremonies are often perceived as legalistic works that were required by an angry God to gain his favor or avert his wrath. But is that really what the Bible teaches? To be sure, the LORD did institute the divine service in the Old Testament with all of its laws, rites, and ceremonies. Yet did God do this in order to be appeased or pleased by the ancient Israelites? When the priests enacted the offerings and sacrifices at the sanctuary, was it merely to do good works that God required but without meaning or purpose for his people? Was worship in the Old Testament always what the people did for the LORD or did God do anything that was beneficial to the Israelites? This book answers these questions and, furthermore, dispels the recurring misinterpretation of worship in the Old Testament. The LORD established the divine service in the Pentateuch not to receive what he demanded from the people of ancient Israel, but, on the contrary, to cleanse them from their sinful impurities, sanctify them to share in his holiness, and dwell among them with his blessing.

Lutheranism vs. Calvinism

In 1586, six years after the Book of Concord was published, Lutheran theologian Jakob Andreae and Calvinist French Reformed theologian Theodore Beza met to debate the differences between the two confessions. Their debate centered on the Lord's Supper, the person of Christ, Baptism, art and music in churches, and predestination. These are the classic issues between these two Protestant confessions, and this is the classic debate between two leading theologians of the second generation of the Reformation.

On the Legitimate Interpretation of Holy Scripture

On the Legitimate Interpretation of Holy Scripture
$16.95
Johann Gerhard (1582-1637) is widely acknowledged as the most scholarly and insightful theologian of the Lutheran Church in the seventeenth century. Not only Gerhard's writings in the realm of dogmatic theology, but also his devotional works, have had a powerful influence on the Church for four centuries.

Gerhard wrote his Tractatus de legitima Scripturæ Sacræ Interpretatione (1610) to serve as a corrective for flawed Roman Catholic and Reformed methodologies which he was concerned were imperiling the faith of Christians by detracting from the authority of Sacred Scripture. Gerhard's book is a carefully reasoned response to such methodologies and as a valuable resource for all students of theology.

One Lord, Two Hands: Essays on the Theology of the Two Kingdoms
$34.99
"This collection of essays serves as a sourcebook of significant writings on the reception and use of the theology of the two kingdoms. The Lutheran teaching of the two kingdoms, in one way or another, touches on every article of faith from creation to eschatology. It is critical to vocation, as the Christian navigates life as a citizen of this world while simultaneously a citizen of the heavenly kingdom through faith in Christ Jesus. Without the distinction between the two kingdoms, faith is misplaced, and the neighbor is deprived of the love owed him or her. Pastors, church leaders, teachers, and theology students will find in these essays a respect for Luther's confession of God's two kingdoms and a desire to see it fruitfully utilized in addressing the issues we now encounter in the world"--

Prolegomena: A Defense of the Scholastic Method

Prolegomena: A Defense of the Scholastic Method
$24.00
Since the Luther Renaissance in the early twentieth-century, many scholars of the Reformation period have argued for a strong discontinuity between the early Protestant reformers and the following age of Protestant Scholasticism. Such a claim is exemplified by Radical Lutheranism, which purports that Luther's theology is incommensurate with that of the scholastic movements of the seventeenth century. In this work, Jordan Cooper defends the scholastic approach as a genuine outgrowth of Reformation theology and offers a critique of the theological system of Radical Lutheranism. He does this through a thorough exposition of the method used by Martin Chemnitz, Johann Gerhard, and other post-Reformation thinkers. He demonstrates that the foundational metaphysical assumptions of the Lutheran scholastics are both consistent with the Reformation and necessary for the church today. This book is the beginning of a series titled A Contemporary Protestant Scholastic Theology.

$39.99
Combining his deep knowledge of Luther with a passion to speak the promising word of the gospel with clarity and integrity in our age, Oswald Bayer has emerged as a leading Lutheran theologian.

These essays, written by scholars from North America and Australia who have been influenced by Bayer's pioneering work, demonstrate the resources that his work has for not only Reformation studies and systematic theology but also for preaching, liturgical theology, pastoral care, and apologetics. For those who are not yet acquainted with the contributions of this Tubingen theologian, Promising Faith for a Ruptured Age: An English-Speaking Appreciation of Oswald Bayer will serve as a guide to and commentary on Bayer's multifaceted approach to theology. Those familiar with Bayer's work as a systematic theologian and Luther scholar will discover new applications of fundamental themes for in interdisciplinary research, ecumenical conversation, and church life.

Reason I Believe: The Basics of Christian Apologetics

How would you respond to the question, "Why should I be Christian instead of Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist?"

In answering, you might focus on what Scripture teaches and what you believe - namely, the Gospel message. But the skeptics will press you for more. They'll ask why a loving God allows evil in the world. They'll promote science that supports Darwinian theories. They'll challenge the reliability of Scripture. People don't often believe something just because someone says they should, especially when it comes to religion.

But what if you answered, "You should be Christian because Christianity is the only religion that can be proven to be true"? And what if you had the evidence to support this powerful claim?

Reclaiming the Reformation: Christ for You in Community

Reclaiming the Reformation: Christ for You in Community
$22.95

What treasures of the Reformation can pastors, Christians, and the church make use of today when trying to navigate burnout and scandal? What should a person look for in a church?


In Reclaiming the Reformation, Magnus Persson examines his own journey from popular preacher where church was a party, to the Lutheran faith and a pastor in the Church of Sweden where he relishes the liturgy nourished by its historic roots. Persson relies heavily on Luther's book On the Councils and the Church to answer this question and explain his journey.


Originally titled Christ's Church, On the Marks of the Church - Reclaiming the Reformation shows the influence of Bo Giertz but also draws on many different influences from within and without the Lutheran tradition to explain how everything the church does needs to be focused on communicating Christ crucified for you.


The church does this through the Word, the liturgy, and the sacraments. Through these means the soul is nourished and matured to handle the distress and tribulation with which the world harries the church and her people. Here, true rest is found for the souls of pastors battered by the pressure to be the next biggest church in town before they burnout and check out with scandal.

In the second volume of this great devotional work, Gerhard builds on the foundation established int he first volume: "In the first volume of this treatise I have related in an orderly way the main, important, and motivational reasons which should generally encourage and awaken every person toward godliness. Now, additionally, follows that we provide a sure form and good directions from the Word of God as to how and in what manner a person should and can practice godliness. It is necessary for us to know both, for God has prescribed both for us in His Word."Rev. Dr. Elmer Hohle's translation of the Schola Pietatis (1623) is his latest contribution to the Repristination Press collection of Gerhard's works.
