July 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Martin Luther started a reformation movement that revolutionized Europe in the sixteenth century. His far-reaching reforms of theological understanding and church practices radically modified both church and society in Europe and beyond.

This series is an essential supplement for first-time encounters with primary texts, a lucid refresher for scholars and clergy, and an enjoyable read for the theologically...


Growing up Lutheran: What Does This Mean
Janet Letnes Martin
1886627053
September 1997
Paperback
·
 
From AudioFile
Two "100% Norwegian Lutheran farm girls" read a hilarious account of what it means to grow up worrying about Catholics, not dancing, and memorizing the Lutheran Catechism. Humorists in their late 50s, they alternate narrating the abridged production, sometimes accenting the segments by simultaneously saying "This is most certainly true" over the sound of organ or piano music. Sounding like two friends giving a talk at a Tupperware party, they're funny in a self-deprecating way that belies their sharp insights on Lutheran culture. The presentation is so wry and underplayed that you can't help but laugh at the way they talk, even when they're not saying anything particularly funny.

Crossing Over: One Woman's Escape from Amish Life
Ruth Irene Garrett, Rick Farrant
006052992X
January 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Garrett lifts the veil from one of the most private, most fascinating Christian sects, the Amish. The fifth of seven children, she grew up in Kalona, Iowa, as a member of the strict Old Order Amish, who owned no motor vehicles and went without electricity and telephones. Unthinkably for an Old Order Amish young woman, she fell in love with an outsider 15 years her senior. Worse, he was divorced, and wedding him was equivalent to adultery in the eyes of the Amish. But leaving the order was her most serious offense, and for it she suffered the severe consequence of being shunned by her home community. Garrett is exceedingly honest, unafraid to criticize what she considers rigid and hypocritical in Amish behavior. Her subsequent life among "the English," as the low German-speaking Amish call outsiders, makes a wonderful tale...

Power Surge: 6 Marks of Discipleship for a Changing Church
Michael W. Foss
0800632648
June 2000
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Drawn from his own experience, Michael W. Foss presents a strong case for transforming congregations from a membership model to a discipleship model of church affiliation. Beginning with a careful analysis of recent patterns in church membership/demographics that argue for this paradigm shift, subsequent chapters detail the unique leadership and organizational needs of a discipleship model, explore the building and maintaining of fundamental trust—in God and in God's people—as the cornerstone of the model, and provide practical help for assessing the present and developing strategies for moving into the future. Addressed to professional and non-professional church leaders interested in transforming their churches into centers for discipleship and mission, it proposes a grace-centered rather than legalistic...


Dietrich Bonhoeffer's Meditation on Psalms
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
031026703X
Sept 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
A one-volume collection of legendary author Dietrich Bonhoeffer's profound and influential meditations on the Psalms, previously untranslated.




From the Back Cover
“The only way to understand the Psalms is on your knees, the whole congregation praying the words of the Psalms with all its strength.”
—Dietrich Bonhoeffer

At the time of his execution by the Nazis in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer was not quite forty years old. Yet already, his influence as a theologian was felt not only in Germany, but throughout the world. His interactions with the Psalms reveal a passionate heart and brilliant mind grappling with the Bible’s eternal truths and their application to human nature and temporal realities.

Martin Luther
Martin E. Marty
0670032727
Feb 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Marty, professor emeritus at the University of Chicago and winner of the National Book Award for Righteous Empire, offers a sterling biography of history's irascible reformer. In concise, accessible style, Marty outlines Luther's life and times, gauging why this man changed the face of Europe and Western Christianity. Marty excels in distilling debates that were matters of life and death 500 years ago but seem obscure to Christians today. Although the celibacy of the clergy is a controversy that no contemporary reader will need explained, other issues such as infant baptism, communion in both kinds (the laity receiving both the bread and the wine) and justification by grace through faith are made accessible by Marty's skillful narration. He depicts Luther as a "man of extremes," bound up in contradictions. Marty...

A Place to Stand
David Vaughan
1581824203
May 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Archimedes, the discoverer of the lever, said that if he had a place to stand, he could move the world. But, of course, there is no such place to stand. However, on April 27, 1521, a young monk from a small town in Germany declared before the powers of his day, who demanded that he take back his faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that his conscience was bound by the Word of God. "Here I stand," he declared. A PLACE TO STAND summarizes the German reformer's life and topically treats his worldview, inspiring readers to delve deeper into the man whose contribution to the betterment of the world LIFE magazine in 2000 ranked as the third most significant of all time and the TORONTO GLOBE & MAIL ranked number two. Nearly five centuries after his time, we can see that Martin Luther indeed had a place to stand. And he did...

Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church
Robert Kolb (Editor)
0800627407
July 2000
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Commissioned in 1993, this new translation of The Book of Concord brings a new generation of scholarship and sensitivities to bear on the foundational texts of Lutheran identity. The fifth English translation since 1851, this edition succeeds that edited by Theodore Tappert published in 1959 by Muhlenburg Press. A review of the text in light of a mountain of new scholarship and other factors dictated the new translation and apparatus, including changes in the English language over the past forty years, differences in the training and preparation of seminarians and pastors, limitations in the introductions and annotations to the various parts of the book, new knowledge of the history and theology of these very documents, and the occasional error in Tappert's translation. Kolb and Wengert's team of leading...
