Item description for One True God: Understanding the Large Catechism II 66 by Edward Engelbrecht...
Overview The study thoroughly investigates Martin Luther's comments in the Large Catechism II 66 that touch on the question: do Muslims, Christians, Jews, and pious philosophers all believe in and worship the same God? This study will walk you through the challenging history, interpretation, and translation of Luther's thoughts and will provide you with context for understanding Luther's view in contrast with other Christian thinkers. This book is a result of the conversations and work that Concordia Publishing House did with LCMS Commission on Doctrinal Review to prepare the second edition of Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions.

Extremely Well Done & Necessary Clarification Aug 15, 2007
This is outstanding contribution to clarifying a disagreement in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod over a fellowship issue, namely that of Christians and other world religions.
The controversy has surfaced centered around the interpretation of Large Catechism II 66b.
Engelbrecht carefully, meticulously goes through the possibilities surrounding Luther's use of the concessive conjunction in this passage as well as the the verbs "worship" and "believe" in this passage to show that Luther would not allow the liberal interpretation and application of this passage that non-Christians have the same God as the Christians.
This is vital not only in midst of LCMS controversy, but as well in Christian body.
