Henry Eyster Jacobs was one of the greatest American Lutheran theologians of the 19th century. In this work, Jacobs summarizes the basics of Dogmatic Theology in the Lutheran tradition. Following the traditional Loci method, Jacobs discusses every major topic of Christian theology such as: The Doctrine of God, Christ, Salvation, the Means of Grace, and the Church. He treats these subjects in a Biblical and Confessional manner. With a lack of contemporary Dogmatics texts in English, Jacobs' work serves as a much needed introduction to, and overview of, Lutheran theology. He writes in a manner that is engaging, readable, and practical.
