Lutheran Spirituality explores the rich depths of spirituality in the Lutheran tradition. It is a spirituality that begins at Baptism and is founded on God's word. There, the incarnate, crucified, and resurrected Lord proclaims his victory over sin, death, and the devil, and from there flows the proclamation of his Gospel and the administration of his Sacraments. Written by respected Lutheran scholars, this book emphasizes the Bible, Luther's catechism, and the Lutheran hymnal as concrete and integral resources for a truly Lutheran spirituality.
Appreciate anew eight God-given components of true spirituality: the Word, prayer, confession, the cross, witness, vocation, community, and promise. Discover how these biblical practices and concepts support your Christian walk of faith in a world full of self-made theologies and religious philosophies.
