Like any 101 class, Lutheranism 101 examines Lutheran beliefs and heritage in a introductory way that is quick, usable, comprehensive and concise.
Whether you’re a lifelong Lutheran, a newcomer to the faith, or someone interested in learning what Lutherans believe, Lutheranism 101 helps make core principles simple. With a popular and fun style, major theological concepts are broken down into easy-to-read articles, charts, and bullet points.
Pastor James Wetzstein, university associate pastor at Valparaiso University, contributed Agnus Day lectionary comic strips which are a humorous addition seen that show the lighter side of theological concepts.
“The only lectionary comic on earth is a part of our book, helps our presentation, and really gives you an interesting look at Lutheranism,” said CPH editor Scot Kinnaman.
With Lutheranism 101, readers have the opportunity to learn about God and His Son, faith and belief, heaven and hell, church and fellowship, sin and forgiveness.
“This resource just looks marvelous! I mean what a great tool! It’s packed with great stuff and a wonderful diversity of authors. It looks good; it feels good; it’s exactly what that average person who doesn’t want to be overwhelmed with information would want,” said LCMS President Rev. Matthew C. Harrison.
Beginning now through Reformation Day (October 31st) customers receive an introductory Web-only price of $14.99.
“Lowering the price of Lutheranism 101 is one of our ways of giving back to the Church. We realize that this is an essential resource that’s needed for today’s ministry and practical living,” CPH president and CEO Dr. Bruce Kintz said.
“Readers can look up a topic and read a little bit about Luther or every other aspects of the faith. Another marvelous product,” Harrison said.
