24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By John L. Hoh Jr. VINE VOICE on January 6, 1998
Format: Hardcover
Professor Francis Pieper, Lutheran theologian, has done Christianity as a whole and Lutheranism in particular a great service with his volumes, collectively entitled "Christian Dogmatics." These volumes have served pastors, students, and professors of confessional Lutheranism well over the decades. Its clear and concise wording help to explain the many mysteries of the Bible. They are easy to read even for the average layperson; they are especially helpful for anyone who seeks to learn more about Christian teaching and faith or to prepare to defend Christian doctrine. Though written several generations ago, the volumes seem to still speak with a relevant voice to people poised on the brink of the 21st. century. Amazon.com's price makes it a bargain and a must buy/must read. Buy each volume! You won't regret it!

16 of 18 people found the following review helpful By "gottliebschaller" on May 18, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This 4-volume set has been the standard in the more confessional Lutheran churches for decades.
Pieper thoroughly covers the doctrines of Scripture. He not only supports the doctrines well from the Word, but he also gives varying views (mostly from the Reformed and Roman Catholic way of thinking). This is a good help in finding out what other church bodies teach on a given topic.
Another good Dogmatics text that is in the process of being translated and will come out soon is Hoenecke's Dogmatics. Actually Vol. IV is already out.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Steven H Propp TOP 100 REVIEWER on December 6, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The author (1852-1931) was a Lutheran (Missouri Synod) theologian who was professor of theology and later president at Concordia Seminary. This volume was first published in 1924. (Christian Dogmatics, Vol. II and Christian Dogmatics Volume 3 were actually published earlier: in 1917 and 1920, respectively.)

Here are some quotations from the volume:

"A man may... lack that foundation of his faith which the Sacraments supply, but still have the true faith in the forgiveness of sins if he trusts in the Word of the Gospel, as heard or read." (Pg. 86)
"Now, since Scripture furnishes no information on these open questions and theological problems, it is foolish to spend much time and energy on them." (Pg. 95)
"There can be no development of Christian doctrine, because the Christian doctrine given to the Church by the Apostles is a finished product, complete and perfect, fixed for all times." (Pg. 129)
"What we object to in the Reformed theology is this, that in all doctrines in which it differs from the Lutheran church... it denies the Scriptural principle and lets rationalistic axioms rule." (Pg. 186)
"Scripture is indeed 'no textbook of the natural sciences'... But when, even though only in passing, it does teach matters of natural science, its statements are the inviolable truth..." (Pg. 473)
"The reason why God did not provide a Savior for the fallen angels, as He did for fallen man, lies hidden in the 'unsearchable judgments' of God." (Pg. 508)

It is absolutely magisterial in parts of it. Pieper was one of the great ones.
But because it doesn't really focus on sin, the law, and sanctification and free will as the confessions outline those doctrines, it will fail to be all that relevant to current issues that swirl around those foundational doctrines. We Lutherans need to return to a study of sin, the law and repentance. All in the matrix of law and gospel distinction..
