"The publication of a new translation of the Book of Concord has been made desirable, if not necessary, by a number of considerations. In the first place, in so far as every translation is an interpretation, the tremendous advances must be taken into account which have been made during the last generation in our understanding of the literary and historical backgrounds of the documents included in this book. In the second place, allowance must be made for the literary tastes of modern readers for whom the English style of earlier generations seems heavy, cumbersome, and sometimes almost unintelligible. In the third place, the needs of those who may use the volume must be considered by furnishing them with quick and easy reference, in both the introductions to several documents and the footnotes, to persons, events, literary citations, and other tools essential to understanding and study...." Foreword from The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church

Synopsis

The Book of Concord or Concordia (1580) is the historic doctrinal standard of the Lutheran Church, consisting of ten credal documents recognized as authoritative in Lutheranism since the 16th century. They are also known as the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. The Book of Concord was published in German on June 25, 1580 in Dresden, the fiftieth anniversary of the presentation of the Augsburg Confession to Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Augsburg.
