Item Description...
Overview
This book combines a rich description of the (Lutheran) Formula of Concord (1577) with experiences in today's Lutheran parishes to demonstrate how confessional texts may still come to life in modern Christian congregations. Timothy Wengert takes the Formula of Concord, traditionally used as ammunition in doctrinal disagreements, back to its historical home, the local congregation, giving pastors, students, and theologians a glimpse into the original debates over each article. The most up-to-date English commentary on the Formula of Concord, A Formula for Parish Practice provides helpful, concise descriptions of key theological debates and a unique weaving of historical and textual commentary with modern Lutheran experience. Covering the entire Formula of Concord the book includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Very Fine Attempt  Jul 18, 2008
Timothy Wengert makes a very fine attempt at making the Formula of Concord relevant to today's parishioners. This is all the more appreciable if you read the Formula of Concord. It is hardly the first thing on most people's minds these days. Wengert, relying heavily on Robert Kolb's scholarship, gives a fine historical introduction to each article. He then explains the article in question and then relates a charming story from his days in the parish. Since this is not supposed to be a scholarly analysis of the Formula I suppose I could say that Wengert makes it as relevant as it can be made for today's laypeople.
