531195NOW AVAILABLE: On Sin and Free Choice

August 2016: On the Gospel and Repentance

2017: On Interpreting Scripture; Method of Theological Study

Gerhard sets forth guidelines for properly interpreting Scripture (hermeneutics). The Method of Theological Study expands on those guidelines and gives advice to seminary students on how best to study theology and prepare for service to the church.

2018: On Justification

This volume, consisting of just one commonplace, handles the heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and controversial topics such as: “Do sins against conscience deprive a person of faith, the Holy Spirit, and salvation?”

2021: On the Resurrection and Last Judgment
