Reviews - What do customers think about Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel?

preaching  Mar 15, 2008
The law and gopel must be preached every day and this is a good resouce if you want to do it right
Great Book of Lutheran Theology  Nov 4, 2006
This book is a compilation of speeches given to seminarians as they prepared for ministry, but it is a wealth of good theology for the laymen as well.
The gospel is not a demand, but the good news that Christ has already accomplished everything needed for your forgiveness  Sep 10, 2005
The book is not about separating the Old Testament from the New Testament, but about distinguishing justification from sanctification by observing the difference between God's demands for holiness and his promises offered in the good news. It answered most of the objections and misconceptions I had had about the topic.
Soul Care, the Christian Life, and the Bible  May 8, 2005
Walther's book is an excellent book and must read for every Christian, especially Lutherans. In this book, Walther discusses the distinction between Law and Gospel, and how these affect people and how God uses them. While the Law is truly from God, it terrifies the individual and points out their sin, it is God's alien work (Isaiah 28:17). The Gospel shows our Savior, and shows how we are forgiven, and how we live in thankfulness. The core of Christian and Lutheran theology.

Walther's story about what happened to him in college, in meeting the Pietistic Candidate of Theology to teach him the "real" way of being a Christian is something that resonated with me. Walther approaches this subject with first hand experience of the danger in not properly distinguishing Law and Gospel. One can find echoes of Walther's story among the throngs of thoughtful Christians in modern Evangelical, non-denominational churches where the Gospel is preached infrequently.

No one should preach, teach, or try to care for souls in the Church unless they have read this book and come to grips with the difficult things Walther brings up. The Christian may never master them in their life on this earth (Luther admitted he never did, but sure did try), but understanding the distinction aids one greatly. Read it.

Note: The book is long, and *very* insightful. I tried to sit down and read it through, but after reading one lecture I felt mentally "full." So much is said in each lecture I needed time to digest it. Read a lecture a day, and you'll finish the book in a little over a month... and have no end of wonderful things to chew on. :)
Classic American Lutheran work  Feb 21, 2005
Walther gave a series of lectures a century ago that were meant to be an explanation of some essential Lutheran teachings. These lectures were so insightful and true to the spirit of Luther that Walther became the most important American Lutheran theologian and his book became a test for orthodoxy. Walther seems to have drunk deeply from the well of Luther's writings; his mind appears to be so at one with Luther's that this book is of the highest quality and one of the handful of books that would be essential to a scholar after the Bible, the Book of Concord, and Luther's writings. A gem.
