Developed and written primarily for Lutheran pastors, church workers, and seminary students, Luther's Large Catechism with Annotations and Contemporary Applications presents this foundational Lutheran text with more than 50 essays, written to help address and apply the Large Catechism in an increasingly complex contemporary world.
Nine introductory essays provide an overview of the Large Catechism and its influence around the globe. Each chief part of the Large Catechism is then treated with topical essays to underscore its relevance in contemporary society.
Extensive annotations address the needs of readers: terminology, translational challenges, biblical support, cross-references to the Small Catechism, confessional documents, and historical context.
Luther's Large Catechism with Annotations and Contemporary Applications is a project of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod's Commission on Theology and Church Relations.
