Martin Luther, Friend or Foe of the Jews by Armas Holmio on 'Concerning the Jews and Their Lies'

“One of the areas in which the Reformer has been repeatedly misrepresented has to do with the relationship of the Church with the Jewish people, frequent attempts being made to link him with modern anti-Semitism. Such attempts call for clarification by the Church of the Reformer’s actual position. “[Luther] reflects his true heart attitude toward the Jews with this prayer: ‘O God, heavenly Father, turn and let thy wrath over them be brought to an end, for the sake of thy dear Son.

Christian Liberty by Charles Krauth

“The body without the spirit is dead, but it retains for a while the form; and while the form is there, hope may sometimes lie cherished that life will yet revisit it; but when even the form is gone, and the body fallen to ashes, unless God shall speak, hope is extinct forever. “It is a sad thing to see the form robbed of the power; but there is one stage of misery below this.

The Life of Philip Melanchthon by Joseph Stump

“The life of so distinguished a servant of God as Melanchthon deserves to be better known to the general reader than it actually is. In the great Reformation of the sixteenth century, his work stands second to that of Luther alone. Yet his life is comparatively unknown to many intelligent Christians. “In the preparation of this book, the author has made use of a number of biographies of Melanchthon by German authors…His aim has been to prepare a brief but sufficiently comprehensive life of Melanchthon, in such a form as would interest the people… That these pages may, in some measure at least, accomplish their purpose, and make the Christian reader more familiar with the work and merit of the man of God whom they endeavor to portray, is the sincere wish of the author.

The Lutheran Confessions: A Brief Introduction by Henry Eyster Jacobs

“There are points in the Church’s history, years, months, days, in which all the evil that has ever assailed the Church, seems brought to a focus, and to overcome it, the Holy Ghost, who never deserts his charge, concentrates against it not only the sum of all the experience of the Church of the past, but also the endowments of new, fuller, richer unfoldings of the sense and power of God’s Word.

A Compact Biography of Charles Porterfield Krauth by Beale Melanchthon Schmucker

“Dr. Krauth was beyond all question the most learned and distinguished among all Lutheran theologians that use the English Language, and the great scholars of our church in other parts of the world have long ago ranked him among the chief scholars of the great church of theologians.” – Dr. G. F. Krotel “He understood the faith, and he gave his best energies to its exposition, inculcation and defense against all assailants.

Walther and the Predestination Controversy or The Error of Modern Missouri by Schodde et al.

The rise of the Synodical Conference under the LCMS has made Universal Objective Justification the Shibboleth of American Lutheranism.

Intuitu Fidei or In View of Faith. Part 2 of Walther and the Predestination Controversy or The Error of Modern Missouri by Schodde et al.

Calvinism’s “doctrines of grace” make unconditional election the first cause of a person’s salvation.

The rise of the Synodical Conference under the LCMS has made Universal Objective Justification the Shibboleth of American Lutheranism.

Infant Baptism And Infant Salvation In The Calvinistic System – A Review Of Dr. Hodge's Systematic Theology by Charles Krauth

“What happens to young children who die? If you’ve ever wondered about the so-called “Age of Accountability”, or how “Original Sin” relates to infants, this small book can help.” …Many of the greatest of the Reformed divines have been overwhelmed with what they grant is on this point – the objective force of Baptism – the faith of all the fathers and of the entire Christian Church through all the ages before the rise of Calvinism.
