Upcoming Volumes of Johann Gerhard, Theological Commonplaces

Johann Gerhard, theologian at Jena Johann Gerhard, theologian at Jena

2013          On Creation and Predestination

Includes the commonplaces On Creation and Angels, On Providence, On Election and Reprobation, and On the Image of God in Man before the Fall. This volume is notable for its section on the angels and its discussion of many aspects of the doctrine of election.

2014          On Sin and Free Choice

Includes the commonplaces On Original Sin, On Actual Sins, and On Free Choice. This volume is notable in opposing “decision theology,” in which one’s conversion and salvation depend ultimately on human choice.

2015          On the Law

Includes the commonplaces On the Law of God and On Ceremonial and Forensic Laws.

2016          On the Gospel and Repentance

As the title says, this one includes the commonplaces On the Gospel and On Repentance. This volume is notable for its in-depth examination of confession and absolution, one of the means of grace.

2017          On Justification

Includes just one commonplace, On Justification through Faith—right in time for the quincentennial of the Reformation. (Luther posted his theses for debate on indulgences on Oct. 31, 1517).
