Reviews - What do customers think about The Lutheran Handbook?

BIZARRE  Jan 20, 2007
This book has been presented as a humorous, lighthearted attempt to instruct Lutherans on their religion. Not so! It is peculiar and bizarre as opposed to being comical. An example: On page 127, number 5 of a list of Ways to Banish the Devil From Your Presence, "BREAK WIND The devil (along with anyone else in the room) might well leave you alone (This was one of Martin Luther's favorites.)" Witty, if you are perhaps in the 3rd grade. On page 161 of The Five Grossest Bible Stories shows this statement in a box, "Jeremiah strapped on some filthy underwear to show God could no longer be proud of the people." Inside the box is a cartoonish drawing of Jeremiah in a diaper with a diagram arrow pointing to "dirty underwear". What we are given here is simple mindlessness posing as hilarity. Pathetic and insulting. Don't buy it and if your church has already purchased any, return them and demand your money back. The book has no redeeming value.
 
Excellent Resource  Jan 3, 2007
The Lutheran Handbook has been a smashing success for it's publisher, Augsburg Fortress, and for good reason. It is funny, concise, thorough and well-organized. I am a Lutheran pastor and we have used this book as the basis for both adult education studies and confirmation class. People new the the Lutheran tradition find it an informative and quick read and always appreciate borrowing the church's copy.
 
Serious Theology?  Nov 27, 2006
This book might be a fun read, but there is a dearth of serious theology being taught in the ELCA these days. I would not consider this serious theology.
 
New Insight for an Old Lutheran  Sep 4, 2006
Wonderful book that combines humor and
Christian beliefs. Very easy to read and
apply to every day life
 
Highly recommended  Mar 11, 2006
This book covers everything you might expect: Lutheran theology, comparison of major branches of Christianity, pointers to some interesting parts of the Bible, how to handle disruptive people in church, how to behave at various church-related events, what to bring to a covered-dish dinner (do Californian Lutherans really feature Tofu in their covered dishes?), and more.

Most of the book applies very well to non-Lutherans.

... Oh, and a lot of it is funny.
