Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gerhard O. Forde has stood at the forefront of Lutheran thought for most of his career. This new collection of essays and sermons — many previously unpublished — makes Forde's powerful theological vision more widely available. The book aptly captures Forde's deep Lutheran commitment. Here he argues that the most important task of theology is to serve the proclamation of the gospel as discerned on the basis of the doctrine of justification by grace alone through faith alone. For Forde, the doctrine of justification is not one topic among other theological topics; rather, it is the criterion that guides "all theology and ministry. Throughout the book Forde applies this truth to issues of eschatology, authority, atonement, and ecumenism. Also included are seven insightful sermons that model the Lutheran approach to proclamation.

Synopsis:

This series explores themes of Christian faith and life from the perspective of the Lutheran confession. Written by respected scholars and teachers, these volumes aim to apply Lutheran principles to the problems of contemporary society and to promote greater understanding between Lutherans and other Christians.
