Gerhard’s Theological Commonplaces

The greatest doctrinal text in the entire history of Lutheranism.

The Theological Commonplaces series is the most significant theological work of Lutheran orthodoxy after the Reformation and remains a classic of Lutheran theology. With skill and precision, Johann Gerhard sets forth the Christian faith from Scripture in dialogue with the Church Fathers, medieval theology, Luther, and a multitude of contemporary theologians.

Each hardback volume features:

  • The English translation of Gerhard’s Loci Theologici (originally published 1610–25).
  • Glossary of key theological, rhetorical, and philosophical terms.
  • Name and Scripture indexes.
  • Carefully researched list of works cited, which presents guidance for deciphering the numerous abbreviations of the other titles from which Gerhard quotes.

Latest Release: On Justification through Faith

Gerhard’s basic position is that justification is a judicial term, and thus the appropriation of God’s grace through faith alone (justification) is not the transfer of divinity—of the essence of the God-man—or of any qualities (created or divine) from God to the believer, but instead it is a change of status before God. For Gerhard, justification is unthinkable without the real person of Christ being apprehended through faith.

About Johann Gerhard

Johann Gerhard (October 17, 1582–August 17, 1637) is remembered as the “Archtheologian of Lutheranism.” Gerhard was the most influential of the seventeenth-century Lutheran theologians. He decisively influenced Protestant theologians to study the evangelical (i.e., Gospel-centered) character of the pre-Reformation Christianity.
