      I purchased this book based upon the title and product description. I was disappointed for it really lacked comparisons of other Christian traditions. >>>>>>

      It is weak on comparisons with other Christian traditions. The author would quote one or two sentences, maybe a paragraph from different Traditions confessional statements or catechisms. There was no interactions with the other traditions. Thus the book has little value in this respect. I wished there would have been some interaction when a comparison was supposed to be made. For example what is the difference between Orthodoxy's view of sin vs Lutheran view of sin, etc. I know that Orthodoxy view of sin is based on a medical model while the Lutheran view is based upon a forensic model. Yet I would not know this from this book. >>>>>>

      Its strengths are (1) giving an excellent presentation of what conservative Lutheran churches believe regarding the confessional statements found in the book of Concord; (2) a clear view of the inerrancy of Scripture; (3) an excellent resource for those who want to explore Lutheranism; (4) a good resource for comparing your Christian tradition with conservative Lutheranism.>>>>>>>

      My wish: Instead of comparing Lutherans with other traditions, I wished it would have made the comparison with what is going on with the liberal Lutheran churches and used current documents instead of quoting a liberal view from the 19th century and early 20th century.

      Every Lutheran Preacher and every Lutheran congregation should read this book. Lutheranism today has moved far from the tenets of faith stated so clearly in this book.

      A book like this is long overdue. Professionals and laypersons will enjoy the read.
