Lutheran Questions, Lutheran Answers: Exploring Christian Faith

This book covers A-Z when exploring the Lutheran Faith through the eyes of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). Very easy to read and understand, this book answers most questions and then some anyone would ask about how this church believes. Of course, not everyone is going to believe everything exactly the same, but if your beliefs match well, the ELCA might be for you. Dr. Marty adds quite a bit of humor along the way so that the reading is fun too. Hope everyone enjoys it, like I did.

Martin E. Marty has written a little book that is clearly applicable to all flavors of Lutheran teaching and practice. Marty provides enough detail to satisfy while keeping the answers short enough to be useful. He covers important points I had not thought of and filled many gaps in my understandings. An excellent resource for Lutherans and non-Lutherans alike. It can be read in just a few hours and discussed for many days. Highly recommend it for anyone interested in understanding the Lutheran perspective and practice.

Martin Marty writes a thorough, thought provoking and exciting essay on Lutheran theology. He includes many Bible references, quotations from Luther's Small Catechism and interesting notes on everyday life. This is written in a simple and plain language that anyone can understand. Recommended for those who want to think in detail about Christian theology or as a guide for group study.

This is a great, easy to read book that puts common questions on God, faith, and Lutheranism on the table and answers them in a practical, easy to understand way. There's a lot of background in why we do what we do, with references to back up what is said.

I needed a book that would help with a paper I was writing. Marty's writing is clear, His topic is complex, and he has chosen his questions and answers well. I recommend the book to people who want to learn more about their Lutheran faith.

My husband and I read this book as part of a church study group. Neither of us liked this book. The author seems to make a point and then reiterate the same point over and over. Very long winded. I think he could have condensed his message into about 10 pgs. Maybe great if you're a theologian but for the average person...I would suggest looking for a different book.

I was hoping to find concise answers to the myriad of questions posed in the book...didn't learn anything new because most, if not all, the answers lacked specificity. I'm not sure why the book was written...it failed to differentiate between ELCA Lutherans and those of the Missouri Synod and other smaller groups. Maybe if I'd read this as part of a study group it would have made more sense but as a stand-alone book, it was a disappointment.
