Product Description

Commissioned in 1993, this translation of The Book of Concord brings a new generation of scholarship and sensitivities to bear on the foundational texts of Lutheran identity. The fifth English translation since 1851, this edition succeeds that edited by Theodore Tappert published in 1959 by Muhlenburg Press.

A review of the text in light of a mountain of new scholarship and other factors dictated the new translation and apparatus, including changes in the English language over the past forty years, differences in the training and preparation of seminarians and pastors, limitations in the introductions and annotations to the various parts of the book, new knowledge of the history and theology of these very documents, and the occasional error in Tappert's translation.

Kolb and Wengert's team of leading Reformation historians was augmented by consultation with one hundred other scholars and teachers who use The Book of Concord continually, and two other teams of scholars who have reviewed the translations. In coming years, two volumes of related documents will follow.

The benefits of this new translation include:

  • Expanded introductions and annotations offering richer historical context
  • New translation aiming at accessible but accurate translation
  • Format easier to read and use
  • Leading American scholars involved or consulted

    I enjoyed the fact that it has translated both the German and Latin text for the Augsburg Confession. The pages are easy to read. The reference in the back make it easy to identify different topics. Love it.

    I recently ordered the Book of Concord to use in expanding my knowledge. It is a nice book, custom made, and seems to be of high quality. Whether you need this book as part of your faith, or just to complete your library, it's a good book at a good price.
