Publishers Description
First published in 1983, Principles of Lutheran Theology has guided students into theological reflection on the landmarks of Christian faith as understood in the Lutheran confessional heritage for a generation. The book sets forth the main principles of classical Lutheran theology but with an eschatological accent. Canon, confession, ecumenicity, Christ-centeredness, sacrament, law/ gospel, and two kingdoms are all examined not only in terms of their original meaning and historical development but also in light of current reflections.In this new edition, Braaten takes stock of the research and reflection of the last twenty-five years and also adds a chapter on the distinctive, Archimedean Lutheran insight into the hiddenness of God as a fount or ground of all theologizing. This new edition, cross-referenced to key readings in Luther's Works and The Book of Concord, will both equip and facilitate the search for a contemporary articulation of Christian identity in light of the church's historic commitments.

A great intro to Lutheran "movement" thought & theology, to Ecumenical progress, and to early vs. modern Reformation theology  Jan 21, 2006
Great read on Lutheran church theology (although the word "Principles" should be emphasized in the title), ecumenical thought, and early Reformation vs. modern thought theology.

Carl E. Braaten is clear and concise to pack a lot of chapters in this little 154 page book. The term "Principles" should be emphasized, as Braaten does not write or present a systematic theology.

The chapters are as follows:
1) The Canonical Principle,
2) The Confessional Principle,
3) The Ecumenical Principle,
4) The Christocentric Principle,
5) The Sacramental Principle,
6) The Law/Gospel Principle, and
7) The Two-Kingdoms Principle.

Carl E. Braaten, accomplishes a couple of things for me, through this little intro to the theology of the Lutheran-"movement":

a) covers the whole wide horizon on how various Lutherans look at these important theological principles,
b) is not shy of showing the catholicity and also the ecumenical flavor of the Lutheran movement, and
c) presents Lutheran theology not as a stand-along theology but as a theology of a "movement" (Evangelical or Lutheran) whose scope is to reform (or revive, renewal of) the church, its members, and the role of Christianity and Christians in our modern times.

I would also need to add that in my search for an ecumenically-minded, creedal, liturgical, and historical Protestant church (coming from a neo-Protestant, free-worship, insular church and background) this book has been instrumental towards my finding the conservative Lutheran church as my home church. A church as a member of the Church (of Jesus Christ)!

Doing a search on Carl E. Braaten will show that his writings are focused on: ecumenism or Christian unity theology, ecclesiology, and Lutheran theology. These subjects should be welcomed also by Roman-Catholics and Reform Protestants.
Excellent review  Jun 23, 2004
A great overview of Lutheran beliefs and schools of theology. If you want to learn more about Lutheranism, as a church member or as a non-Lutheran, this is a good place to start. Not too difficult to read or too long, this book nonetheless packs in a lot of information. As a Missouri-Synod Lutheran I found it very helpful in understanding other Lutheran viewpoints. The price is right too.
Lutheran heritage past and present  Oct 13, 2003
Carl Braaten has been one of my favorite lecturers and authors on t he subject of Lutheranism and the ecumenical movement. While he may be a little "circle the wagons", his points are always thoughtful and based upon a sound understanding the both the ancient and modern trends and writings.

With only 138 pages of text, this book is one of the best introductions to Lutheranism around. Braaten doesn't paint a romantic picture of the movement nor its theology, but rather shows the context out of which the movement began, as well as its relevance for today by asking the question, "What is the protest about for today?" Packed with sound scholarship and a general survey of the modern situation (although it is dated to 1982), topics include:

The Canonical Principal, The Confessional Principal, The Ecumenical Principal, The Christocentric Principal, The Contemporary Shape of the Soteriological Question, The Sacramental Principal, The Law/Gospel Principal, The Two-Kingdoms Principal.

Highly recommended, along with is another of his books on ecclesiology, "Mother Church".
