Commissioned in 1993, this translation of The Book of Concord brings a new generation of scholarship and sensitivities to bear on the foundational texts of Lutheran identity. The fifth English translation since 1851, this edition from Augsburg Fortress succeeds that edited by Theodore Tappert published in 1959 by Muhlenburg Press.

A review of the text in light of a mountain of new scholarship and other factors dictated the new translation and apparatus, including changes in the English language over the past forty years, differences in the training and preparation of seminarians and pastors, limitations in the introductions and annotations to the various parts of the book, new knowledge of the history and theology of these very documents, and the occasional error in Tappert’s translation.

Kolb and Wengert’s team of leading Reformation historians was augmented by consultation with one hundred other scholars and teachers who use The Book of Concord continually, and two other teams of scholars who have reviewed the translations.

Benefits of this new translation:

  • Expanded introductions and annotations offer richer historical context
  • New translation aims at accessible but accurate translation
  • Format is easier to read and use
  • Leading American scholars have been involved or consulted

Nothing new here... No new book to review. BUT, the good folks at Accordance have done the excellent work of bringing the Book Of Concord - the standing confessions of Confessional Lutheran Churches - into the most excellent world of all things Accordance. This is a happy day. Well done!
