Why study the Lutheran Confessions? Because they clearly explain what Holy Scripture teaches. This means they are filled with the life-giving water of God’s Word.
Like many Lutherans, Pastor Carlson was not raised to know and appreciate them. He thought they were dry and dusty relics of the past. But when he finally dove into them, he found a refreshing source of life and strength that points constantly to Christ and his work (and away from our own!). If you’ve always wanted to know what Lutherans believe - and why we believe it - Diving Into Concord offers an entry point to learn what we believe, teach, and confess, drawn from the scriptures, and centered on Christ.
If you are looking for a full copy of the Book of Concord, consider the CPH Reader’s Edition, available from Concordia Publishing House.
