9781331025597: The Doctrinal Theology of the Evangelical Lutheran Church: Verified From the Original Sources (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Doctrinal Theology of the Evangelical Lutheran Church: Verified From the Original Sources

For twenty-three former editions of this translation have been widely used in Lutheran Seminaries. The aim of its compiler was of a purely historical character. It was not to afford a summary of the absolutely final definitions of Luth eran Theology, but to exhibit the teaching that had been current up to the time of the beginnings of Rationalism. As such, it does not grow obsolete. No public teacher in the Lutheran Church is qualified for his work without knowing the positions held by the leading Dogmaticians, even though he may often regard them open to criticism. The book re quires the living teacher to indicate the weaknesses, as well as the excellences of these revered authorities. Definitions in Theology are always to be interpreted historically. The roots of Biblical Theology are found in Chemnitz and the theologians who lived nearest the time of Luther; but a different method prevails in their successors. While occasionally giving a hint concerning the changes that are thus produced, Dr. Schmid does not make this a prominent part of his treatment.

The second edition of this translation, published in 1889, aimed at a faithful reproduction of the Fifth Edition of the original, the last published in the life of its author, together with such additions from the same authorities from which Dr. Schmid had compiled as would render the work more service able to American students.
