Reviews - What do customers think about Loci Theologici, Part 1 (Chemnitz's Works)?
Confessional Lutherans MUST own this book Nov 4, 1999
This book is a required text in a Systematic Theology class at Concordia Theological Seminary taught by Dr. William Weinrich called "God and Creation". Chemnitz's loci on the Trinity is expounded with much credit to the Church Fathers, especially Augustine and John of Damascus. It is for this section alone that makes it worth your purchase. Please also note that this is not a full translation of the Latin Loci (e.g. the Lord's Supper is not included; buy Preus' translation of Chemnitz's "The Lord's Supper" to read a wonderful exposition on the Lutheran understanding of the Eucharist with much support from the Fathers as well as Blessed Martin Luther). This book is a must-buy for any man who desires the holy preaching office or a lay person who wishes to understand orthodox Lutheran dogma.
