CJ5 Stars Out Of 5DICTIONARY OF LUTHER AND THE LUTHERAN TRADITIONSNovember 14, 2017CJQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5November 1517 and the 95 Thesis posted by Luther at Wittenburg had launched a Reformation which still
echoes today. The Lutherans were the shock force that kicked the doors down on the established church
at that time. All the more that such a reference Dictionary like this should be made public to understand
the historical situation with regards to theology, politics, economics, and international relations during that era.
This book is definitely the GO-TO Reference book for all things Lutheran. Early, Orthodox, Pietist,
Enlightenment, and American Lutheran ideology are firmly defined and discussed.
If you are a Lutheran pastor, seminary student, or a scholar, yep, this book can only contribute
significantly to your outreach and ministry....Buy it!
Definitely belongs in the reference section of all Lutheran College and Seminary libraries.
