Overview
Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess offers an overview of the major doctrines of Christianity in a comprehensive, but accessible way. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book is a helpful resource to those within that tradition and to others who seek a deeper theological understanding. Firmly rooted in Scripture, this book emphasizes the interrelatedness of all Christian teaching, with its central teaching being the doctrine of justification by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. This book is ideal as a text for university students and other educated Christian adults who seek to expand their knowledge of God's revelation and its application in human lives. It introduces and uses classical theological vocabulary and terminology, while offering clear definitions and application. Key terms, study questions, glossary, and sidebars help make this a valuable resource. Suggested readings from Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and other secondary sources guide the reader into deeper study.

Called to Believe, teach and Confess - A layman's review  Dec 20, 2007
This is the third book on Lutheran Doctrine that I have read and it certainly is the best work to date. It covers the the whole of Lutheran doctrine in a clear and concise manner that makes the work a useful book in any Lutheran's library. Unlike other scholarly works that tend to be dry, and boring, Dr. Mueller has done an excellent job at making his book readable; no easy task given either the material or the depth that Dr. Mueller covers the subject. This work has an audience that is not limited solely to pastors, but extends to the laity as well. We will be using this text as a basis of a series of doctrinal reviews for our congregation over the next two years and I personally would not have a problem with quoting sections to an adult study group. Pastors will find it useful for directing congregational members who have questions they wish to research on their own. I have found the work very useful as a reference work for bible studies and for material to use in confirmation training. I heartily recommend this book!
 
Not so bad...  Feb 1, 2007
I had to read this book for a class in college, and suprisingly it wasn't that bad at all. I thought "Oh great, another boring textbook," but this book makes Doctrine interesting and easy to understand.

Definetly something everything religion buff needs at their disposal.
 
The Best Introduction to Lutheran Doctrine  Nov 26, 2005
"Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess" is the best and clearest introduction to Lutheran doctrine available. It is written at the university level without watering down the quality. It is an excellent book for 1) pastors to review their doctrine 2) for interested laypeople 3) for lay level study groups who want to systematically study Christian doctrine 4) university students 5) non-Lutherans who want to learn more about traditional conservative Lutheran theology from a reliable source. The book makes conservative, confessional Lutheran theology accessible to the average layperson and non-Lutherans because is clearly explains Lutheran theology without having to know Greek, Latin, German or "Lutheranise". The book has a very useful glossary of theological terms. Also at the end of each chapter there are questions for study and review, key terms, a bibliography for further reading that includes sections of the Book of Concord that are relevant to the topic. The only drawback is that it is a little pricey for a paperback, but since the content is excellent and uniquely written, you will find it worth every cent.

If you want a more academic/scholarly treatment of Lutheran doctrine I would recommend "Christian Dogmatics" (4 vols.) by Francis Pieper and the "Book of Concord".
 
Solid, Clearly Written Approach to Christian (Lutheran) Doctrine  Sep 13, 2005
I had the honor of being Rev. Dr. Steven P. Mueller's work study student at CUI while he was putting the finishing touches on this text. It is excellently written and formatted for clarity and ease of understanding. I am not someone who grasps theological concepts readily, but I found this text to be very informative, interesting, and easy to comprehend. I highly recommend it.

Review from publisher website:

Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess offers an overview of the major doctrines of Christianity in a comprehensive, but accessible way. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book is a helpful resource to those within that tradition and to others who seek a deeper theological understanding. Firmly rooted in Scripture, this book emphasizes the interrelatedness of all Christian teaching, with its central teaching being the doctrine of justification by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Key terms, study questions, glossary, and sidebars help make this a valuable resource. Suggested readings from Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and other secondary sources guide the reader into deeper study.

This valuable resource achieves faithful accuracy and commendable clarity. Students of doctrine need both. This book supplies both. Following the traditional order of the ecumenical Creeds, the authors deftly place each locus in biblical context and connect each with Christian life today. This volume fills a need for an accessible undergraduate text and could also enrich congregational study groups. Anyone seeking a ready resource for exploring the foundations of orthodox Christian teaching will welcome this book.
