Five Volume Small Catechism Commentary for Only $100!
ALL FIVE VOLUMES AVAILABLE FOR A LIMITED TIME FOR ONLY $100.
Long the gold standard of research on Luther’s catechetical writings, this translation of Peter’s Commentary on Luther’s Catechisms places the catechisms in the larger context of the reformer’s writings and within the history of Christian teaching and theology. Luther remarked that he himself could never comprehend everything taught in the catechism. Readers will be captivated by how much is there and how their own understanding and perception will grow. Recommended especially for pastors and teachers who want deeper background for teaching young people, these volumes will also enrich the teaching of adults, whether in instruction classes or for ongoing growth in the faith. Many people may be unaware of how the “simple” is a distillation of revelation that may be anything but simple. Luther has been accused of being simplistic. Peters, however, addresses the issue by pointing out that the catechism was fashioned as a starting point for teaching the faith. He notes that in his other sermons and writings, Luther fleshes out the complexities of the Christian faith and what that means for salvation.
