The wisdom and biblical teachings of the early Lutheran Church have been locked away in German and Latin for centuries. But coming soon from Concordia Publishing House, Lives and Writings of the Great Fathers of the Lutheran Church provides a key to this treasure chest by introducing the chief confessional Lutheran theologians from the era of Lutheran Orthodoxy (1580–1700).
Short biographical sketches reveal the little-known life stories of these pastors and theologians, while selections of their best writings are presented in first-time English translations. Each chapter also lists all English translations of their work, along with their greatest writings in the original languages.
