Confessional Lutheranism: does anyone care? Feb 3, 2001
Arand shows he cares by giving us a careful, articulate look at the systematics history of this confessional movement, sorting it into the categories of: protestant consensus, catechesis and teaching, doctrinal norms, historical decision, consolidation and crisis, ancient heirlooms, work in process confessions, catholic and evangelical witnesses and ecumenical proposals.
Weighing in with this question, does anyone else care about how, when or where we use our Lutheran confessions anymore? Arand purports that if Lutheran confessionalism is to continue to be a vital force in the future, then this is a most relevant question to resolve. Confessional hermenutics as well as current application go hand in hand. Amen.
Most valuable resource for digesting and re-examination.
