Morgendämmerung, oder, Wie man mit dem Hammer theologirt.
Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit id es semper esse puerum.
Orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.
Homo sum humani nihil a me alienum puto.
Semper idem sed non eodem modo.


Verbum domini manet in aeternum. The word of the Lord endures forever.
1 Peter 1:24-25, quoting Isaiah 40:6,8. Motto of the Lutheran Reformation.

Fayth onely justifieth before God. Robert Barnes, DD The Supplication, fourth essay. London: Daye, 1572.

Lord if Thou straightly mark our iniquity, who is able to abide Thy judgement? Wherefore I trust in no work that I ever did, but only in the death of Jesus Christ. I do not doubt, but through Him to inherit the kingdom of heaven. Robert Barnes, DD, before he was burnt alive for "heresy", 30 July 1540.

What is Luther? The doctrine is not mine, nor have I been crucified for anyone. Martin Luther, Dr. theol. (1522)

The Lutheran Study Bible.

My copy of The Lutheran Study Bible, or TLSB as it looks like will be its functional name, arrived yesterday, and I gotta tell ya, this is an absolutely amazing product! I would encourage anyone reading to go to the widget for it on the sidebar to the left and order it if you haven't already. It's just that good.

As to why it's that good, most of my favourite blogs have already reviewed it in some detail, so rather than go all over that again here, also go to the sidebar on the left, and click on the blogs in my "Daily Read Lutheran Blog List" where you will find excellent reviews.

I think for just reading the Bible, as distinct from study, I'll continue to use my Concordia ESV Deluxe Reference Edition, because the pages are mostly Bible text and are thicker and easier to turn. But for study and reference, wow, TLSB is just astoundingly good!

LCMS has its problems indeed, but if we can produce a study Bible like this, somewhere some of us are doing something right, and the people involved in producing this study Bible are definitely doing something right. Get it!
