The Knowledge of Christ comprises a series of studies on important dogmatic topics, developed by commentary on traditional Christian authors, including St. Augustine, St. Bernard, Meister Eckhart, Martin Luther, Maximus Confessor, Martin Chemnitz, St. John of Damascus, St. Thomas Aquinas, and Johann Gerhard. These studies are also informed by a traditional metaphysical perspective (philosophia perennis) which is brought to bear on the meaning of the dogmatic Symbols and of the 'heart' in which faith is said to abide. As implied in its subtitle, the book seeks to exemplify the use of metaphysical understanding in the practice of dogmatics within the Lutheran theological order of the Church.
