The Baier-Walther Compendium

Did you know that Emmanuel Press offers Baier’s Compendium Theologiae Positivae (Compendium of Positive Theology) as print-on-demand? Seven years ago, we reprinted it after being out of print for over a century.  This rare masterpiece is a 17th-century Lutheran dogmatics work in Latin and German to which C.F.W. Walther, first president of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, added copious quotations from Luther and orthodox Lutheran theologians such as Martin Chemnitz and Johann Gerhard.  This work was used as the systematic theology textbook at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, for many years, and was the basis for Francis Pieper’s well-known Christian Dogmatics.  These hardcover volumes include the complete text and a helpful index.
