best book on Lutheranism contra Calvinism Sasse is an incredible theologian with an uncanny grasp of Lutheran doctrine and what makes it so Part 3 of Here We Stand is a tour de force which clearly lays out a strong argument for the Lutheran Church and clearly defines where it stands between the Roman and the Reformed churches Although a basic understanding of Reformation history is necessary to understand much of it, this is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the Reformation as it lives today.However, the rest of the Sasse is an incredible theologian with an uncanny grasp of Lutheran doctrine and what makes it so Part 3 of Here We Stand is a tour de force which clearly lays out a strong argument for the Lutheran Church and clearly defines where it stands between the Roman and the Reformed churches Although a basic understanding of Reformation history is necessary to understand much of it, this is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the Reformation as it lives today.However, the rest of the book is a victim of its age and geography I benefited from my familiarity with the German Evangelical church even so, much of the book was wasted on me, because the nature of the Lutheran Church in America today is so dramatically different than in Nazi Germany Part 2, in which Sasse champions a religious view of the Reformation in opposition to a historical critical or nationalistic approach, holds little reward for the modern American reader despite its truth Karl Barth, although still considered the greatest theologian of the 20th Century, is not as fashionable as he once was, and Sasse s refutation of his work does not carry the weight it did when the Lutherans in Germany were under pressure to join the Confessing Church.Despite its drawbacks, the meat of the book that is, Part 1 and most of Part 3 is well worth reading Anyone interested in Protestant doctrine and theology, and the place of the Lutheran Church in the Christian landscape will find great value here.This review is based on the 1946 American edition from Augsburg Publishing House `DOWNLOAD E-PUB ⇭ Here We Stand ⇰ Book by Hermann Sasse
