Johann Gerhard was the premier Lutheran theologian of the early seventeenth century. Combining a profound understanding of Lutheran theology with a broad interest in ethics and culture, he had a significant influence on biblical, doctrinal, pastoral, and devotional theology.
Johann always remained steadfast in his commitment to spreading God’s Word, even though he faced many trials in his life. At various times, he suffered from asthma, dry fever, rheumatism, kidney trouble, and weakness of his entire body. His father died when Johann was only 16 years old. On top of his health and home-life struggles, he was threatened with imprisonment many times during the Thirty Years’ War. Still, he always remained faithful. He was known for his perseverance; to this day, it shines through in his writings.
His Loci Theologici are regarded as the standard for Lutheran orthodoxy, with topics ranging from the proper understanding and interpretation of Scripture to eschatology. They interact with the writings of the Church Fathers, Luther and his contemporaries, and the Catholic and Calvinist theologians of his day. Now they’re available in English for the first time ever.
