Baier-Walther Compendium – One Set Available at 10% off

About eight years ago, Emmanuel Press reprinted Baier’s Compendium Theologiae Positivae (Compendium of Positive Theology), which had been out of print for over a century.  This rare masterpiece is a 17th-century Lutheran dogmatics work 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 three volumes, bound into two books, are the complete text.  Volume IV is a helpful index volume.   All are hardcover.

While these volumes are normally only print-on-demand, we do have one set in stock that we are offering at 10% off the retail price. This set of three volumes is available at 10% for $76.50 plus $6.00 shipping/handling. Email us at to arrange for payment via Paypal.
