Reviews - What do customers think about Augsburg Confession The?
AC - Learn what the original Lutherans believe Feb 5, 2007
The Augsburg Confessions lays down the basic beliefs of the early Lutherans with commentary. The actual confession is very simple and to the point. The commentary elaborates and goes into detail, context, etc. I was amazed at the simplicity and conciseness.
