The Theological Commonplaces series is the first-ever English translation of Johann Gerhard's monumental Loci Theologici. Gerhard was the premier Lutheran theologian of the early seventeenth century. Combining his profound understanding of evangelical Lutheran theology with a broad interest in ethics and culture, he produced significant works on biblical, doctrinal, pastoral, and devotional theology. Gerhard interacts with the writings of the church fathers, Luther and his contemporaries, and the Catholic and Calvinist theologians of his day. His Loci are regarded as the standard compendium of Lutheran orthodoxy, with topics ranging from the proper understanding and interpretation of Scripture to eschatology. In this first volume (of Seventeen) of the Theological Commonplaces series, Gerhard presents a brief introduction on the nature of theology, then addresses the source of all Lutheran doctrineHoly Scripture. In 28 chapters, Gerhard explores the efficient cause of Scripture, the subject matter of Holy Writ, offers specific treatment of each canonical and apocryphal book of the Bible, and discussed inspiration of Scripture. Finally, Gerhard offers insight on versions of Holy Scripture and its interpretation. Useful for research on Lutheran doctrine, Gerhard's accessible style makes this a must-have on the bookshelf of pastors and professional church workers.
