Item description for Christian Dogmatics, Volume 1 (Christian Dogmatics #1) by Francis Pieper, Theodore Engelder & T. Engelder...
Overview Pieper served on the faculty and later as president of Concordia Theological Seminary in St. Louis. He also served as chief dogmatician and president of the Missouri Synod from 1899-1911. Pieper's chief concerns in his dogmatics are the infallible authority of scripture, which he saw crumbling in the German, Lutheran Church, and the person and work of Jesus Christ. The significance of this work has not faded in the 80 years since its first publication, and all Christians both within and outside the Lutheran tradition will benefit from these volumes. Volume 1-Deals with the nature of theology, Holy Scripture, God, creation, divine providence, angels, and man. Volume 2-Deals with the grace of God in Christ, Christ's person and work, saving faith, conversion, and justification by faith. Volume 3-Deals with sanctification, preservation, the means of grace, the Church, the ministry, the election of grace, and eschatology. Volume 4-Serves as an index to the first three volumes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Dogmatics, Vol. 1?
The Classic Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics May 18, 2000
This 4-volume set has been the standard in the more confessional Lutheran churches for decades.
Pieper thoroughly covers the doctrines of Scripture. He not only supports the doctrines well from the Word, but he also gives varying views (mostly from the Reformed and Roman Catholic way of thinking). This is a good help in finding out what other church bodies teach on a given topic.
Another good Dogmatics text that is in the process of being translated and will come out soon is Hoenecke's Dogmatics. Actually Vol. IV is already out.
Timeless classic on Christian Faith and Teaching Jan 6, 1998
Professor Francis Pieper, Lutheran theologian, has done Christianity as a whole and Lutheranism in particular a great service with his volumes, collectively entitled "Christian Dogmatics." These volumes have served pastors, students, and professors of confessional Lutheranism well over the decades. Its clear and concise wording help to explain the many mysteries of the Bible. They are easy to read even for the average layperson; they are especially helpful for anyone who seeks to learn more about Christian teaching and faith or to prepare to defend Christian doctrine. Though written several generations ago, the volumes seem to still speak with a relevant voice to people poised on the brink of the 21st. century. this site.com's price makes it a bargain and a must buy/must read. Buy each volume! You won't regret it!
