In this first volume (of Seventeen) of the Theological Commonplaces series, Johann Gerhard presents a brief introduction on the nature of theology, then addresses the source of all Lutheran doctrine: Holy Scripture. In 28 chapters, Gerhard explores the efficient cause of Scripture and the subject matter of Holy Writ, offers specific treatment of each canonical and apocryphal book of the Bible, and discusses the inspiration of Scripture. Finally, Gerhard offers insight on versions of Holy Scripture and its interpretation.

The Theological Commonplaces series is the first-ever English translation of Johann Gerhard's monumental Loci Theologici. Gerhard was the premier Lutheran theologian of the early seventeenth century. Combining his profound understanding of evangelical Lutheran theology with a broad interest in ethics and culture, he produced significant works on biblical, doctrinal, pastoral, and devotional theology. Gerhard interacts with the writings of the church fathers, Luther and his contemporaries, and the Catholic and Calvinist theologians of his day. His Loci are regarded as the standard compendium of Lutheran orthodoxy, with topics ranging from the proper understanding and interpretation of Scripture to eschatology.

Useful for research on Lutheran doctrine, Gerhard's accessible style makes this a must-have on the bookshelf of pastors and professional church workers.

Features of the 2nd edition:
  • new translation of two original introductions by Gerhard, explaining the purpose of the Theological Commonplaces and giving autobiographical details; clarified text; explanatory footnotes
  • vocabulary list
  • Scripture index
  • person index
  • well-researched works cited list
