Dr. Klug has mined the voluminous writings of Luther to clarify Luther's understanding of church and ministry and has shown that, centuries later, Luther's views have shaped specific church bodies such as The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod and particularly its leading founder, C. F. W. Walther.

Divided in three parts the book looks at

  • the church
  • the ministry
  • an understanding of church and ministry

Dr. Klug interviews more than three dozen people who lend great interest and further clarification to the discussions in part 3. Although the interviewees may differ with Luther, amazingly, they agree as to what Luther says about church and ministry.

The same is true of the 'other interpreters' in the final chapter. A balanced analysis that recognizes the doctrine of the ministry, as well as the rights and role of the congregation.
