A Lost Treasure Has Been Found! The Apocrypha is Back!

A lost treasure has been found!  The Apocrypha, which went missing in action in English speaking Lutheranism, has been restored. Since the time of Luther’s first complete Bible translation, through the hundreds of years that followed, faithful Lutheran theologians, pastors and laity had the Apocrypha as part of their Bibles and spiritual heritage. It was quoted in doctrinal works, devotional works and in sermons by all orthodox confessional Lutherans, down to the days of C.F.W. Walther who referenced it in his writings and sermons. But, when the church here in America, the Apocrypha was lost because it was not printed in English Bibles that were used by Lutherans. Now, for the first time, a special Lutheran study edition is ready for you to dig into.

    Are future editions of the Lutheran Study Bible going to have the Apocrypha in it?

    I’d love to see a compact edition, when possible.

    Why were the Apocrypha dropped from English bibles? I know that they aren’t considered divinely inspired in the Lutheran Church, but there’s a lot of history there that gets left out–Maccabees (the only part I’ve read) explains the reason for the Roman presence in Palestine and creates a backdrop from which Christ’s world came. It is good that they are available again!

      It was due in large part to the growing anti-Roman sentiments in the Church of England, from whence the KJV was born to begin with.

    @Rev. Paul J Cain
    Similar question here, will there be any leather/bendable covers available? Hardbacks and myself don’t always do so well. :)

      No plans for any other editions at this point in time nor for the foreseeable future.
