This book combines a rich description of the (Lutheran) "Formula of Concord" (1577) with experiences in today's Lutheran parishes to demonstrate how confessional texts may still come to life in modern Christian congregations. Timothy Wengert takes the "Formula of Concord", traditionally used as ammunition in doctrinal disagreements, back to its historical home, the local congregation, giving pastors, students, and theologians a glimpse into the original debates over each article. The most up-to-date English commentary on the "Formula of Concord", "A Formula for Parish Practice" provides helpful, concise descriptions of key theological debates and a unique weaving of historical and textual commentary with modern Lutheran experience. Covering the entire "Formula of Concord", the book includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
