    Wonderful, easy to read

    Preus clearly and concisely explains why Lutheran beliefs are true and Biblical, since they focus on nothing but Jesus at the center, and Him crucified for sins.
    Written for the layperson, this is very well done and can be read easily by most and if studied in conjunction with the Bible correctly understood via law and gospel, will significant bless all readers.
    Preus does a wonderful job in this book of presenting a summary of the Christian faith and how the Lutheran church, by the grace of God, has upheld the teachings of the Bible. With clarity of explanation and thorough support from the Scriptures, Preus shows how all doctrine (teaching) is centered in Christ Jesus. He examines the main points of Christianity, and shows how Jesus is central for each of them. Not only that, but he show that when Christ is not kept central to our teaching, the glory of God is lost because man displaces God. Preus uses great illustrations to explain his points, and writes in an engaging style. This book is well worth a read by any Christian, and could only serve to help them understand the Christian faith more accurately (Acts 18:26). This book was not written to deny the faith of other Christians, which it does not do--however it does show how Lutheranism holds more accurately to the Biblical teachings. Read this book with a Bible in hand :)
