Law and Gospel: A Must Read
I’m working my way through the new [fantastic] edition of Walther’s Law and Gospel. It is truly superb. It is a must read for anyone who desires to be a faithful Lutheran pastor. I have heard of some seminary professors dabbling around with offering “better” distinctions than Law and Gospel, such as, “two kinds of righteousness.” How horribly unwise, when there is such a treasure to be found in Walther’s lectures on Law and Gospel. Walther himself would correct me and say, “I am merely guiding you through the treasures of Holy Scripture and our Lutheran fathers, particularly our own dear Luther.”
If you have not purchased and read Law and Gospel: How to Read and Apply the Bible I heartily encourage you, plead with you, beg you, to do so! Now. You will be profoundly blessed!
