Lutheran theology survived the last five hundred years. But will it survive the next?

Since the time Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Lutheran theology has survived centuries of political, religious, and societal pressures that challenged its foundational teachings.

But the question remains: Do Lutherans today understand their theological heritage well enough to maintain and defend their unique beliefs when outside pressures dismiss them as irrelevant to modern-day Christianity?

Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity sets forth more than twenty important practices, doctrines, and beliefs that distinguish Lutheranism from all other denominations. Topics include:

  • Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura, and Solus Christus
  • The Dichotomy of Law and Gospel
  • Christ’s Presence in the Lord’s Supper
  • Luther’s Unique Insight on the Theology of the Cross

Engaging and insightful for both layperson and pastor, Hallmarks of Lutheran Identity will deepen your understanding of Lutheran theology and its rich historical traditions so you can confidently answer the question, “What do Lutherans believe?”

starsCanonicity of the NT books addressed in a clear manner

I have, being a convert to the LCMS, read several books about the uniqueness of Lutheranism, and would not have sought out another one like this. . However, I bought this book because I was interested in Dr. Schmidt's interview on Issues Etc concerning the early church's and early Lutheran understanding of the New Testament Canon in contrast to what the Roman Catholic Church proclaimed at the Council of Trenton in 1545, which was a major departure from the historic church and previous councils. . Although this seems like a purely academic exercise on the surface, there are some profound implications in the nuances. Most importantly it is foundational to the principle of Sola Scriptura. . By a blind acceptance to the Council of Trent's unorthodox determination of the canonical books, the whole of Protestantism, including most of Lutheran practice today, has put itself in the position of not being able to argue against the point that the Romans Catholic Church is the origin of the New Testament and we all are indebted to her and are lost children. . Now I see how to argue the point and those 2 chapters were worth the price of the book for me.
