Item Description...
Overview
Gerhard O. Forde has stood at the forefront of Lutheran thought for most of his career. This new collection of essays and sermons (many previously unpublished) makes Forde's powerful theological vision more widely available. This volume aptly captures Forde's deep Lutheran commitment. Here he argues that the most important task of theology is to serve the proclamation of the gospel as discerned on the basis of the doctrine of justification by grace alone through faith alone. For Forde, the doctrine of justification is not one topic among other theological topics; rather, it is the criterion that guides all theology and ministry. Throughout the book Forde applies this truth to issues of eschatology, authority, atonement, and ecumenism. Also included are seven insightful sermons that model the Lutheran approach to proclamation.

The book itself aptly demonstrates Forde's deep Lutheran commitment. Here he argues that the most important task of theology is to serve the proclamation of the gospel as discerned on the basis of the doctrine of justification by grace along through faith alone. For Forde, the doctrine of justification is not one topic among other theological topics; rather, it is the criterion that guides "all" theology and ministry. Throughout the book Forde applies this truth to issues of eschatology, authoriy, atonement, and ecumenism. Also included are seven insightful sermons that model the Lutheran approach to proclamation.

"A More Radical Gospel" will be of special interest to pastors, students, and general readers curious about the Lutheran perspective on Christian faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great Intro to Lutheran Theology  Sep 4, 2005
Back in seminary I took a class on Lutheran theology. We spent the semester reading Luther, and rightly so. I learned a lot about Luther and the theology of the cross, however I never realized how vibrant Lutheran theology was today until I read this book. Gerhard Forde was a brilliant mind; through his writing I gained a whole new respect for Luther and the tradition that bears his name.

I was especially appreciative of the sermons printed at the book's end. True to the impression I got reading these theological essays, this theology is not reserved for academia. It is relevant and necessary to the person in the pew as well as in the pulpit.
 
Powerful, unmistakably Lutheran theology  Apr 12, 2005
Like many others, I read Forde's _Where God Meets Man_ back in college, and it blew my mind. His unmistakably Lutheran critique of Lutheranism showed me how the truth that never changes still speaks across the centuries. Here is a guy who takes the "difficult" topics from the tradition (eg. Law/Gospel - Justification - Predestination - Theology of the Cross) and shows how they can still and should still inform our thought today. Most importantly, Forde shows this in closer to natural English than almost any other theologian.

That book was published back in the early 70's, and he has not stopped his work at all, and in this book two of his students have gathered together some of his best essays, talks, and sermons from the last thirty years. They are grouped topically into various categories and together with the introduction, provide a good one book overview of his thought.

Since the essays are meant to stand by themselves, there can be significant overlap between them, but this often helps the reader see how these topics can and do overlap and gives hints of how to treat other topics from the same Christocentric perspective.

Forde's Eschatology seems to have particularly developed since the 70's. I was aware of some of this from his sections of Braaten/Jenson _Christian Dogmatics_, but was not fully aware of how this had bloomed in his thought.

While I do not view this book as quite as important as _Where God Meets Man_, it is still a powerful witness to an often ignored voice - namely our tradition. The essays are small enough and self contained enough that they stand on their own, but after reading them in book form, it turns into a Gospel voice that crys out to world the good news of our savior. Very much recomended. Thanks to Lutheran Quarterly, Eerdmans, and Professors Mattes and Paulson for this much needed book.
