Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Concord?

Outstanding Translation of Christian Doctrine!  Mar 27, 2006
This is a beautiful exposition of the Holy Bible and Christian doctrine. It's outlined in well-organized articles, and contains English translations of both the original Latin and German versions of the Augsburg Confession. This also contains the Small and Large Catechisms, which were written by Martin Luther for teaching Christians about God's Word and Sacraments. Included amongst the other sections is the Formula of Concord, which is the most extensive of the Lutheran Confessions of faith. Although this edition lacks the footnotes and other resources of the newer Kolb edition, this translation is definitely the most accurate.
For those not familiar with the Book of Concord, I would highly recommend reading the Small Catechism section first, followed by the Smalcald Articles.
Lutheran Agreement of 1580  Feb 3, 2006
The Book of Concord provides the basis of beliefs for today's Lutheran Synods of WELS, ELS and Missouri Synod. This book covers the Augsburg Confession, Smalcald Articles, Formula of Concord and Luther's Small and Large Catechism. It discusses religious belief arguments between Catholics, Baptists, Calvinists and applies to most of today's TV Evangelical teachings. The book supports 100% Biblical teachings of Justification by Grace, through Faith, through Christ's blood as stated in Ephesians 2:8. Faith is a gift of God; man cannot be justified by works, or make any personal decisions to come to faith as everyone is born, "dead in sin", Psalm 51.5. Natural man's free will can only sin; therefore, God must reveal himself through Biblical scriptures where a person reading or hearing may be made "spiritually alive" by the Holy Spirit. Only those chosen (predestined, elected) by God the Father in eternity will be saved, Ephesians 1:4-6. Man can by free will read and study the Bible, which has the power to believe built-in, Romans 10:17 and Ephesians 1:13. Since ony God knows who is chosen, the Gospel must be preached throughout the world so that it can reach the elect. Everyone can read and study the Bible, but not everyone does as it is considered "foolishness to those who are perishing,"1 Corinthians 2:14. This explains the fact that those who will perish, do it by choice for failure to read and study Biblical Scripture. For those who do believe in By Grace Alone through Faith, I would also suggest reading Luther's Works, any of 54 volumes.
Good solid documents  Jun 17, 2003
For those of you who are on the more conservative end of the Lutheran spectrum, I would recommend picking up this translation of the Book of Concord. The newer "blue cover" version has been PC'ed and "inclusified". Let's stick with tradition, and get a copy of the Tappert translation - still the most widely used translation of the BoC.
Book of Concord - Central Lutheran Teaching  Mar 31, 2000
The Book of Concord is, apart from scripture, the central basis on which the Lutheran Church forms its beliefs. It contains many of the chief works of Martin Luther, guiding the church in most areas of life. While the book can be heavily theological, it is required reading of anyone who wishes to know what Lutherans believe.
