Matthias Loy's Classic Work on Justification is Now in Its Second Edition!
The doctrine of justification, the "chief article of the Christian faith," is of paramount importance in the Christian life. This teaching was at the heart of the sixteenth century Reformation, and remains so in the contemporary church of the Augsburg Confession. When many today are seeking to downplay the importance of this teaching in the Pauline corpus and the proclamation of the church, traditional Lutheran evaluations of the great doctrine of justification are needed today more than ever. In this volume, Matthias Loy outlines the doctrine of justification in its classical Reformation formulation. Loy writes in the tradition of Lutheran scholasticism, though his work is not dry or purely academic, but immensely practical. Loy is concerned with the faith and assurance of the average Christian. He discusses the nature of justification, the means of justification, and the effects of justification in the Christian life.
The Entire Lutheran Commentary Series is Now Available!
The Lutheran Commentary Series is the first series of Lutheran commentaries written in English. These volumes were compiled by Henry Eyster Jacobs, who called upon the greatest Lutheran exegetes in America to write a series of commentaries on the New Testament. The first commentary was published in 1895, and the publications continues through the early twentieth century. These volumes cover the entirety of the New Testament.
The volumes in this series are unabashedly Lutheran. Each author holds to a firm commitment to the Lutheran distinctives as outlined in the Book of Concord. Yet, the method of treatment is not that of imposing preexisting theological categories on the New Testament text. Rather, these are careful works of studied exegesis. Though over one hundred years old, these volumes continue to be a valuable resource to the church, both pastors and laity, in explaining God's Word from a Lutheran perspective.
