Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lutheran Theology for the Person in the Pew  Feb 28, 2006
This book was written for those without theological education. It is easy to read yet substantial. It's an excellent book for readers who are curious about what Lutheranism stands for, as well as for those who have forgotten what the "non-negotiables" of Lutheran Protestantism are.
 
Wonderful book for all Lutherans  Dec 9, 2005
Pastor Fryer speaks to you in plain language with a wonderful sense of humor. I think every confirmation class should read it. Our adult Sunday class did, and it was a refreshing change of pace from bible passage discussions. The basic principles she suggests are a solid foundation for any congregation and ones we used during a troubled time in ours. This is a great summary/refresher of what it means to be Lutheran.

If you are looking for dry, over-educated theology, this is not the book for you. This is a book for everyday Lutherans, young & old, who are looking for some basic insight on their chosen religion or non-Lutherans who want to know a little more about how we think.
 
Insightful, thought-provoking and funnry  Sep 30, 2005
Pastor Fryer's take on Lutheranism is enlighening and humerous. She touches aspects of the church community that certainly
relate to both small (rural) and large (urban) congregations. All can surely learn from her insights. It's touching to see a little bit (or a lot) of ourselves and our former (and present?) congregations in her stories of her own congregation and church life. This is a must-read for pastors, church staff, both paid and volunteer, including Sunday school teachers, secretarial staff, choir directors, council members, and the like. After all, as Fryer reminds us as the book concludes, Luther asked us all to be pastors.
 
Depth in plain language  Sep 1, 2005
This is an outstanding work, combining solid theological insight and practical application to the everyday life of a parish, with simple, readable language. Fryer writes well about something she knows a lot about. The result is excellent. If I had the resources I would buy a copy for every member of the Lutheran Church of Australia!
 
excellent read for all Lutherans  Jul 1, 2005
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a Lutheran. It is also a great gift idea. It is very easy to read- in fact I read it in 2 days! In the age of non-denomination mega-churchs it is easy to question and even defend traditional lutheran congregations. After reading this book I felt proud and re-connected to why I am a Lutheran! At the end of each chapter there are questions and thinking points to help you reflect and generate discussion which is ideal for church book clubs!
