    A solid book of devotional prayers composed by Johann Gerhard, who is by general consensus the third greatest among the Lutheran theologians after Luther and Chemnitz These prayers are less theologically rich than the prayers you find in, for example,The Valley of Vision, but they are quite a bitaccessible to the average Christian They are also nicely arranged into categories of confession e.g., The Seriousness of Original Sin, Participation in the Sins of Others , thanksgiving A solid book of devotional prayers composed by Johann Gerhard, who is by general consensus the third greatest among the Lutheran theologians after Luther and Chemnitz These prayers are less theologically rich than the prayers you find in, for example,The Valley of Vision, but they are quite a bitaccessible to the average Christian They are also nicely arranged into categories of confession e.g., The Seriousness of Original Sin, Participation in the Sins of Others , thanksgiving e.g., Thanksgiving for all Goods of Soul, Body, and Property , supplication e.g., Prayer for the Preservation and Increase of Humility , and intercession e.g., Prayer for the Household, Prayer for the Afflicted and Those Who are Suffering.The collection is valuable for Lutherans, obviously, but really for all the people of God Especially salutary in these prayers is the seriousness with which sin is opposed in the Christian s life One cannot read and pray Gerhard s prayers and come away still believing that Lutherans think of justification as nothingthan a cold legal fiction, especially since Gerhard and his nephew Quenstedt practicallyareclassical Lutheran orthodoxy These are warm hearted, earnest, doctrinal, devotional, and doxological prayers
