Martin Chemnitz--the Second Martin of the Lutheran Reformation--stands with Luther and Melanchthon as an author of the Lutheran confessions and father of Lutheran theology. He was the chief author of the Formula of Concord, the most consulted theologian of the late Reformation, and a voice to unite the factionalized Lutherans of Germany. He has been called, after Martin Luther, the most important theologian in the history of Lutheranism. This book is the first full-length biography and analysis of Martin Chemnitz to appear in English. It contains insights gained from 30 years of translating Chemnitz. Written by J.A.O. Preus, former president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. Dr. Preus has translated Chemnitz' Two Natures in Christ, The Lord's Supper, and the two-volume Loci Theoloici.
