Book Of The Month For June 2019: Grace, Faith, Scripture: Portrait of a Lutheran
Grace, Faith, Scripture: Portrait of a Lutheran

By Rev. Dr. Daniel Paavola

2019 / Paperback / 112 Pages

Overview:

Grace, Faith, and Scripture.

These three solas, or “alones,” have long been used to characterize the unique theology of the Lutheran faith. The solas set up a relationship between God and us and between us and our neighbor.

A Look Inside

Book Of The Month For June 2019: Grace, Faith, Scripture: Portrait of a Lutheran - Image 1Lutherans are people of the Bible, basing our faith on God’s Word alone. In that Word, we find grace alone is the central message of God in His relationship with us. To receive that gift, we need faith alone. These three solas are Lutheran hallmarks, but they are also God’s gifts to all Christians.

Using stories and situations drawn from common relationships such as friendships and marriage, Daniel Paavola uses the three solas to deepen our understanding of Lutheran doctrine. The solas don’t encompass every single aspect of Lutheranism, but through them, we can get a picture of what it means to be a Lutheran.
