A surprising little book full of witty humor and useful reference lists I was skeptical at first since this is ELCA, but I loved it and would recommend to any Lutheran. Fun, informative, solid accessible beginner s theology, wish I d had access to this a year ago when I was plunged into the deep end of the christianity pool I highly recommend it to anyone dating a seminarian.ETA Very US centric, without being self aware about it, as with most things coming out of the US. This book is appropriate for Lutherans of all ages joining or being confirmed in the church It is pointedly a handbook, modeled after the 1970s vintage American Red Cross First Aid Handbook, with a similar style of illustration and step by step instruction, but with a bit of dry self mocking that Lutherans are sure to appreciate Lists such as those of Top 10 Bible heroes and villains are reminiscent of another classic handbook, The Official Preppy Handbook c 1980 But underneath the sur This book is appropriate for Lutherans of all ages joining or being confirmed in the church It is pointedly a handbook, modeled after the 1970s vintage American Red Cross First Aid Handbook, with a similar style of illustration and step by step instruction, but with a bit of dry self mocking that Lutherans are sure to appreciate Lists such as those of Top 10 Bible heroes and villains are reminiscent of another classic handbook, The Official Preppy Handbook c 1980 But underneath the surface of engaging presentation is a solid foundation of information that will help Lutherans to better understand their place in the context of the broader Christian faith, as well as a concise analysis of Luther s Small Catechism Great little reference guide that would be especially useful for those going through Confirmation or new to the religion It has some very valuable information, belief breakdowns, and historical context, along with some cheeky bits There were some new to me explanations and interpretations, which was interesting, as I was raised in this faith It also includes the Small Catechism, which no Lutheran should be without I can t say I agree with all of it, but a fast, interesting, read This is mo Great little reference guide that would be especially useful for those going through Confirmation or new to the religion It has some very valuable information, belief breakdowns, and historical context, along with some cheeky bits There were some new to me explanations and interpretations, which was interesting, as I was raised in this faith It also includes the Small Catechism, which no Lutheran should be without I can t say I agree with all of it, but a fast, interesting, read This is most certainly true This book is helping me take my Lutheran faith only as seriously as needed.I have seen myself reflected right into some of the wittiest parts welcome to our church you re in my seat , anyone and realize that sometimes we put too much emphasis on stuff outside of the Word and Sacrament. This is a very cute book, with an easily approachable take on the subject matter, while at the same time very informative with regard to the customs and theology of the Lutheran church My adult Sunday school class recently used it. A fun and handy guide to the basics of lutheranism Indepth in some places, and humorous in others, sefinetly good for the average theological reader but probably won t challenge theexperienced amateur theologians. Somewhat entertaining, and it does contain a little bit of actual useful information, but I think that only got in there by accidentit is on par with most of the stuff I have seen coming out of Augsburg lately. Entertaining, engaging, and witty, but at times a bitdogmatic than dialecticIf I were to use this as curriculum, I would make sure to open it for discussion, as it presents particular closed views on topics that are actually quite open in Lutheran theology. cute, light hearted synopsis of everything Lutheran.
