The wonderful thing about C. God hates sin so much that He established His Way for those lost in sin. That Way is to Repent and Believe in watlher Gospel.
That Gospel is that Jesus Christ has come to save sinners by dying and being raised from the dead.
LAW AND GOSPEL IN THE WRITINGS OF C.F.W. WALTHER
Each of us does those things we ought not to do or fails to do the good we ought waltehr, but this wonderful gift of Grace abounds for those seeking and hoping in our Lord Jesus Christ. Walther has some strong words against the errors so many have fallen into. In our modern era, it is hard to read those strong words.
But, Walther lived in a time of defining and defending unity in the Christian congregations who listen to the Unaltered Augsburg Confessions in the Book of Concord as the basic understanding of that Holy Writ which is the Holy Bible. And, as Eccl 3 mentions, there is a time to gather and a alw to cast.
Walther is a man of his time. Often it is good to understand some of the times before us. We can see our own errors in the virtues and errors of the past. The edition of The Proper Distinction Between Law and Gospel is the same text as the one from Concordia Publishing House in except lacking a page or two of new front matter. Please, note, I have not compared character by character to know absolutely whether the statement is true.
The good thing for the edition is that it does not boast a copyright statement and its from Which you can look up the copyright laws in your area. I am not providing any legal advice. The Kindle edition had many textual errors that may have been corrected. The Blue ‘s edition is nice. One person found this helpful.
This book is an excellent presentation of the correct approach to reading and understanding Scripture that is not well understood by most people who call themselves Christian and certainly not by those who are not Christian. It is a series of academic lectures that provoke thought and are based on the divine inspiration of the Bible.
If one is to deny that the Bible is the divine inspired Word of God, and is looking to dispute the foundation of Christianity, then studying this approach of separation of law and gospel would at best sound bizarre and challenging.
The author really drives home the love God has for every one of us as His children. Walther gave a series of lectures a century ago that were meant to be an explanation of some essential Lutheran teachings. These lectures were so insightful and true to the spirit of Luther that Walther became the most important American Lutheran theologian and his book became a test for orthodoxy. Walther seems to have drunk deeply from the well of Luther’s writings; his mind appears to be so at one with Luther’s that this book is of the highest quality and one of the handful of books that would be essential to a scholar after the Bible, the Book of Concord, and Luther’s writings.
While the book reflects the church and church culture of the 19th century and therefore must be read in that light, it still provides many wonderful insights to the serious study of the Bible.
Walther wasn’t correct in all of his comments and observations, his insights outweigh his mistakes, especially when he seeks to make the gospel the main message of God’s Word. Without a doubt this book contains the ealther news ever shared. Not clear on what the distinction is between the Law and the Gospel? A good read will settle the matter and give a greater appreciation for both.
Walther’s Law and Gospel may be the single most important read for Pastors and Christian teachers.
