Walther's Hymnal: Church Hymnbook for Evangelical Lutheran Congregations of the Unaltered Augsburg Confession
$39.99
Walther's Hymnal: Church Hymnbook is the first of its kind: an English translation of the first official hymnal of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. This was the hymnal that C.F.W. Walther edited and used, and that provided Christians throughout the LCMS a common experience during the Church's early years in America, in the same way that Lutheran Service Book provides a common experience for us today.



Now presented for the first time in English, this is an invaluable resource for history enthusiasts, church musicians, and anyone who wants insight into how our grandfathers sang and prayed. This is a chance to share in that song and prayer of the saints gone before us.



Matthew Carver, MFA, is a translator of German and classical literature. He resides in Nashville, TN, with his wife Amanda and their young son, where they pursue interests in art, orthodox Lutheran theology, liturgy, and hymnody.

$9.95
Welcome to the Feast is an invitation to explore the theme of celebrating God's unfolding covenant relationship with humanity in the context of a meal. Starting with Abraham's hospitality in providing a feast for three divine visitors, the menu in Welcome to the Feast begins with ample servings from the Old Testament before delving into Jesus' many controversial meals with his disciples and other sinners. After savoring the accounts of miraculous feedings, the accounts of the Last Supper as recorded in Paul and the Synoptic Gospels become the main course. Yeary follows with the "breaking of the bread," in the book of Acts. Finally, we hear in Jesus' bread of life discourse in John the call for all who are hungry for true food to come to the feast.

Whole Church Sings: Congregational Singing in Luther's Wittenberg

Whole Church Sings: Congregational Singing in Luther's Wittenberg
$22.00
Authoritative study by a renowned musicologist and Reformation scholar

Many scholars think that congregational singing was not established in Lutheran worship until well after the start of the Reformation. In this book Robin A. Leaver calls that view into question, presenting new research to confirm the earlier view that congregational singing was both the intention and the practice right from the beginning of the Wittenberg reforms in worship.

Leaver's study focuses on the Wittenberg hymnal of 1526, which until now has received little scholarly attention. This hymnal, Leaver argues, shows how the Lutheran Reformation was to a large degree defined, expressed, promoted, and taken to heart through early Lutheran hymns. Examining what has been forgotten or neglected about the origins of congregational hymnody under Martin Luther's leadership, this study of worship, music, and liturgy is a significant contribution to Reformation scholarship.

“Why do you Lutherans do that?” Every Lutheran pastor has heard the question (and some of them have asked it themselves). Most Lutherans don’t know as much about the liturgy as they would like to know—this book is a solution to this dilemma! Dr. Eckardt’s insightful“Why?” column ran for years in the pages of Gottesdienst. Now, Repristination Press has published a collection of these essays, together with several new “Whys?,” providing answers to 65 of those questions which begin, “Why...?”

Worship as Pastoral Care

Worship as Pastoral Care
$25.99

Demonstrates how worship and pastoral care can be blended to sustain and enrich each other.

Using insights gained from pastoral care and pastoral psychology, William H. Willimon explores what happens to people when they become involved in Christian worship. True pastoral care, he shows, cannot take place apart from an active worshiping community of faith.

Worship as Pastoral Care sensitizes pastors to the many ways Christian worship and pastoral care methods can be blended to enrich and support one another. It encourages pastors to broaden their understanding of corporate worship and to become aware of the importance of their role as priests.

To illustrate his concepts, Dr. Willimon examines four familiar acts of worship: the funeral, the wedding, baptism, and the Lord's Supper. The psychological dimensions are discussed and suggestions are given on ways pastors can nurture and sustain their congregations through these services.
