Some Reading for ’09 Theological Conference

March 14, 2009

While we’re waiting for the other papers to be posted and reading lists to be produced, might I suggest the reading and discussion of the following papers that will be a part of the reading assignments for my session at the conference? “Guilt by Association” (an Adobe Reader .pdf document) was my contribution to the Winter Free Conference sponsored by the Association of Confessional Lutheran Churches and the Evangelical Lutheran Diocese of North America; “Making a Clear Confession in Muddy Waters” (a Microsoft Word document) is Pr. Rolf Preus’s contribution to that same discussion. These, together with another online resource or two, as well as readings in Werner Elert’s Eucharist and Fellowship in the First Four Centuries, Pieper’s Christian Dogmatics, Kurt Marquart’s The Church and Her Fellowship, Ministry, and Governance, and C.F.W. Walther’s Communion Theses on Church Fellowship with Those Who Teach Differently will be the chief resources for the portion of the discussion that I will lead at our Theological Conference in May.
