Book: One in the Gospel 2016 edition

One in the Gospel - the Formula of Concord for our day is more than a commentary about the Formula of Concord, it explores how the Formula of Concord speaks to some of today's basic questions that we face throughout our life, including:
  • What are we here for? 
  • Where are we heading? 
  • Is there a God who cares?
  • What is expected of me?
This is a newly revised and updated edition of a book that first appeared in 1979 under the same title. The first edition, which gained a large readership, was particularly appreciated by lay people and was widely studied in church groups. The book helped many readers understand - sometimes for the first time in their life - what the gospel, the central message of the Christian faith, really is.

Contents include:

  • Discovering our identity
  • Dialogue with the Gospel
  • We are beggars - Is it true?
  • How do I find faith?
  • No strings attached!!
  • Fruits on a Good tree
  • Sinners and Saints
  • For Christ's sake, yes!!
  • Jesus only
  • Blueprint for action
  • Louder than words
  • And there's no other God
  • Happy ending?
  • Free -  to serve the Gospel
  • Chosen!!
  • Is God choosy?
  • Our Lutheran identity
