About this title


The issue of church and office is too often a muddle among us, and Walther can be most helpful if he is allowed to speak with the precision he intended.

Matthew C. Harrison

President of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod
Matthew Harrison s new edition of this seminal writing by the first president of the LCMS restores Walther s precise language on the doctrines of church and ministry. As the subtitle of the original German edition states, The Church and The Office of The Ministry is a collection of testimonies . . . from the Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and from the private writings of orthodox teachers of the same. Professional church workers and interested lay members will find a wealth of insights from the Bible, the Confessions, ancient church fathers, Luther, the orthodox Lutheran fathers, and more on the key questions of what or who is the Church, what is and who holds the Office of the Ministry, and what are the powers and duties of each.

side notes highlighting texts from the Bible, Lutheran Confessions and Martin Luther
marginal references to Johann Gerhard
glossary of key German and Latin terms
