Item description for Sources and Contexts of The Book of Concord by Robert Kolb & James A. Nestingen...

Relive the doctrinal controversies generated by Luther and the Reformers in this series of newly translated documents from the likes of Agricola and Eck, as well as rejoinders by Luther, Chemnitz, and Melanchthon. Includes articles and confessions that summarized points of agreement and disagreement.

Publishers Description
Born in controversy and raised in university settings, the Lutheran reform movement was embroiled immediately, publicly, and perennially in theological disputes and political battles. While controversies during Martin Luther's lifetime centered on disagreements with Rome and Geneva, present and later differences emerged over interpreting Luther's and Melanchthon's theologies on such issues as governmental interference, liturgical practices, justification's implications for good works and sin, the Lord's supper, and election. It is this defining dis-concord, alternating with attempts at concord and conciliation, that is reflected in the documents newly translated in this indispensable documentary companion to The Book of Concord, which includes the works of Agricola, Eck, Chemnitz, Melanchthon, and Luther.

Valuable Companion To the Book of Concord  Jul 1, 2006
As indicated by the title, this book is a useful compilation of Reformation Era documents surrounding the Book of Concord. The writings include both Lutheran and Roman Catholic material, including several polemical pieces. Perhaps the most valuable in my opinion, is the Roman Confutation of the Augsburg Confession, which would enables you to sit down with this book and your Book of Concord and read article by article the Augsburg Confession (AC), the respective response by the Roman Catholics, and the subsequent counter by the Lutherans in the Apology. Also very useful is the Catolog of Testimonies, which demonstrated to the Calvinist objectors that the Christology of the Lutheran theologians was not novel to the Christian church, but in fact entirely in line with the confession of the Early Church Fathers and Councils.

The book also contains various precursor documents to the writings in the Book of Concord, as well as some of the religio-political compromises that were attempted in the years after Luther's death. Altogether this book is a valuable companion to the Book of Concord, both for its historical and theological interest.
Get Into The Book of Concord with Context  Jan 6, 2002
This book is just excellent for all students of the Lutheran Confessions. All these fascinating and relevant sources for the Confessions were out of print, or never published in English before.

As now involved in teaching class on the Formula, fascinated by the Leipzig Interim and Chemnitz' "Judgment on Certain Controversies." He states things so plainly and is not politically correct at all, e.g. "it is of utmost importance to establish what limits are to constitute the defining elements of this harmony. Often in the church not only princes and political advisors, but even theologians have sought harmony on the basis of human judgment which led people away from the purity of the Gospel. Therefore, it is necessary in the church that the rule for such harmony be the Word of God."

Wingert's translation of Luther's catechetical material as well as Melanchthon's Disputation, The Catalog of Testominies, Luther's sermon on descent into hell, and the Saxon Visitation ARticles of 1592.

This is great collection of wealth of background info which we Reformation students will sink our theological teeth into and be well rewarded, having greater perspective on the Confessions.

Translated by renown group of Lutheran scholars. Highly recommended.
