Item Description...
This volume of Chemnitz's Works contains three writings of this 16th-century professor, pastor, and church superintendent. It provides the opportunity to learn firsthand from this systematic and pastoral theologian. Ministry, Word, and Sacraments: the Enchiridion This is a translation of Chemnitz's 'little book' for pastors. It covers the Call into the Ministry, the Word and Sacraments, ceremonies of the church, and the conduct of ministers. Includes Index and end notes. The Lord's Supper This is an English translation of De coena Domini, Chemnitz's defense of the real presence of Christ's body and blood together with the bread and wine in the Lord's Supper. Arguing from Scripture and fortifying his presentation with many citations from the ancient church fathers, Chemnitz explains that the real presence does not entail a crass, cannibalistic eating, but a sacramental eating of Christ's true body and blood. Chemnitz maintains that the Words of Institution are the last will and testament of the Son of God and are therefore to be taken literally and understood with the utmost seriousness. Figurative interpretations of the Words should be avoided because they are bound to be uncertain, and they rob the Christian of the comfort furnished by Christ's body and blood, given and shed for the forgiveness of sins. The Lord's Prayer God Commands us to pray, and twice in the New Testament, Jesus gives us the pattern for prayer in the Our Father. In this work, whose full title is A Substantial and Godly Exposition of the Prayer Commonly Call the Lord's Prayer, Chemnitz unpacks the richness of each petition of the Lord's Prayer: how many words to use, what things to ask for, and in what order to ask for them. He offers a fresh and inspiring interpretation based on the biblical texts. The English translation of this work was originally published in 1598 by the University of Cambridge in England at a time when theologians were becoming increasingly aware of the power of the press. This edition, updated to modern English by Georg Williams, makes Chemnitz's timeless exposition available to today's readers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A "yearly" read.  Jan 24, 2007
This book has made it onto my yearly read list (with Walther's Proper Distinction between Law and Gospel and Giertz' Hammer of God).
The book is a question and answer format summary of the ministry. It deals with the means of grace in Biblical ways. Chemnitz is very brief, but his brief answers pack unbelievable depth. In an age where multiple volume sets on doctrine show up, it is refreshing to see such a short treatment that is still deep. If you are ordained, or are considering the Office of Holy Ministry, read and re-read this book. This is the charge of pastors, this is what they are given. Similarly, if you want to know what your pastor has been given by God to do, then read this book.
Small--but packed with powerful theology  Aug 9, 2000
This book is a translation of Chemnitz' "little book" originally written for pastors. The text is written in a catechetical style, a question-and-answer format, with chapters covering such topics as the Word and Sacraments and ceremonies of the church. The translator, Luther Poellet, tried to keep some flavor of the original Latin and German and, thus, the sentences are often wordy, which to the modern reader can be an impediment. Nevertheless, this book asks and answers some questions that are important to the modern Church; this book is definitely worth reading and using as a reference.
