Gift and Promise shows the relevance of the Augsburg Confession for today. In the first three chapters, Crossings Co-founder Ed Schroeder sets forth the theological genius of the Augsburg Confession as rooted in Luther’s theology of the cross and organized around the gospel hub of Justification by faith. In subsequent chapters, nine of his students, all active in the Crossings Community, show the continuing relevance of the 28 articles of the Augsburg Confession for today’s church and world.
