The back cover reads:


The doctrine of Scripture determines precisely how theology is done and what authority theological statements—including those in sermons, dogmatic texts, and confessional writings—possess. At stake is nothing less than truth itself and the possibility of communicating the truth of Christ to mankind.
” A very valuable and needed work, pointing out the grave dangers facing the Lutheran Church today—largely owing to the refusal of its theologians to “think theologically” (Sasse) and to the laxity of ecclesiastical and institutional bureaucrats to take their disciplinary responsibilities seriously.”
John Warwick Montgomery, Ph.D., D.Théol. LL.D.

Director, International Academy of Apologetics, Strasbourg, France
