    Excellent Edition of a True Treasure for All Christians

    The Book of Concord should be in every Lutheran home. If a person isn't familiar with this book, he'll think, 'That old book is just for pastors. I don't have to preach. After working all day, I can't sit down and study in the evening. If I read my morning and evening devotions, that's enough. No, that is not enough! The Lord doesn't want us to remain children, blown to and fro by every wind of doctrine instead of that, He wants us to grow in knowledge so that we can teach others. - Dr. C.F.W. Walther Nothing is more important than clearly confessing and bearing witness to the truths of God's Holy Word which reveal the glorious Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is what the Book of Concord is all about. This edition of the Lutheran Confessions will instruct, inspire and educate all who use it and help them learn what it means to be, and to remain, a genuinely confessing Lutheran Christian. Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions is a remarkable achievement in Lutheran publishing. In 800 beautifully presented pages, the reader will find helpful introductions, insightful notes and annotations, and helpful tools and guides to aid reading and comprehension. The dramatic history and heroic persons associated with the various documents in the Lutheran Confessions are brought to life. There are more than 115 black and white and 31 full-color plates illuminating the text of the Confessions. The second edition offers several significant improvements including * An expanded timeline and general index. * Enhanced page layout features and design elements * New essays in the introduction which provide an overview of the textual issues and history of the Lutheran Confessions * A summary of the nature and meaning of the Church's commitment to the Lutheran Confessions. The Book of Concord is the authoritative collection of the Lutheran Churchâ¿¿s statements of faith. It contains documents which Lutheran Christians have used since the sixteenth century to explain, defend, and advance their witness to the truth of Godâ¿¿s Word. What Others Are Saying At a time of great perplexity, Lutheranismâ¿¿s theological treasure has been opened to the general public. This beautifully edited and elegantly presented â¿¿Readerâ¿¿s Edition of the Book of Concordâ¿ is a wonderful guide out of the spiritual labyrinth created by liberal fudge on the one hand and simplistic self-righteousness on the other. Often it seemed that Lutherans had buried their assets. Now finally we have an intelligible elucidation of what they â¿¿believe, teach, and confessâ¿ and what they â¿¿reject and condemn.â¿ What emerges is an unambiguous and certain witness to the Christian faith that has at this instant been made accessible to allâ¿¿Lutherans and non-Lutherans alike. â¿¿Dr. Uwe Siemon-Netto, Director of the Institute on Lay Vocation at Concordia Seminary
