“The authors have assembled a massive amount of material that will challenge readers to think more carefully about how we read the Holy Scriptures and confess the faith today. This is a provocative book that will engage both those within and outside of the Missouri Synod in coming to understand the development of modern hermeneutics.”
—Dr. John T. Pless, Assistant Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions, Concordia Theological Seminary
Breath of God, Yet Work of Man features definitions, benefits, and discussions of Lutheran biblical interpretation.
Focusing on The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, the authors explain tensions that underlie the use of Scripture in Christian witness, acts of mercy, and life together.
This reference book is produced in partnership with the International Lutheran Council.
