    Answered every question

    Coming from a Baptist background of many years to a Lutheran church. This book answered all of my questions on how the Lutheran view is different from my former Baptist church. A very short book. A very excellent book. Well written. IMHO the Lutherans do have a very beautiful spirituality when compared to the Baptists. Not knocking any. I've well immersed in both, and have been for years. In closing, this book describes Lutheranism incredibly. If I could meet Mr. Veith personally to thank him, I certainly would.

    Lutheran, Non-Lutheran, or Non-Christian all must read!

    I highly recommend everyone to read this book, following through it closely with a hi-liter.There are some very profound statements on Lutheranism as well as general Christianity. He dichotemizes those things that people search for when seeking God, thus it being a great book for the Non-Christian. It seems that almost every topic is covered in this book, from the, 'theologia crucis (theology of the cross),' to the,'theologia gloriae (theology of glory).' I have not enough room to state it all, just buy. God Bless.

    Inspired Insights!

    This book of Gene Edward Veith¿s is not a thick tome burdened with theological jargon; it is well-written book on Christian faith and how it influences the living of life. I suppose Veith could have titled the book, The Theology of the Cross: The Way of Lutherans, for he makes a very valid point on how Lutherans are considered the first Evangelicals. In truth, Luther himself preferred the moniker Evangelical Catholic, with catholic being used to mean ¿universal.¿ I especially found Veith¿s chapter on vocation quite compelling. Each person has a calling to be many things: a citizen, a mother or father or child, a worker, et cetera. Many things have happened to bring a person to a particular point in life. If a person is a parent, then as his vocation he should do the best he can at it. Of course, this is a very inelegant, abbreviated (and terse!) way of explaining one¿s vocation. It would be much better to read the book. In short, this is a lucid book on faith and sanctification. Yet, the book is not a ¿how-to¿ book reduced to giving out tips from the Bible. This book centers on the Christian faith and the living of it, with some of the focus being on Lutheran thought and belief. This book will edify the reader, cause him to think, and turn even more the to revealed Word: Scripture and the God-Man, Jesus.
