Gerhard O. Forde has stood at the forefront of Lutheran theology for most of his respected career. This new collection of essays and sermons -- many previously unpublished -- makes more widely available Forde's powerful theology vision.z

The book itself aptly demonstrates Forde's deep Lutheran commitment. Here he argues that the most important task of theology is to serve the proclamation of the gospel as discerned on the basis of the doctrine of justification by grace along through faith alone. For Forde, the doctrine of justification is not one topic among other theological topics; rather, it is the criterion that guides "all" theology and ministry. Throughout the book Forde applies this truth to issues of eschatology, authoriy, atonement, and ecumenism. Also included are seven insightful sermons that model the Lutheran approach to proclamation.

"A More Radical Gospel" will be of special interest to pastors, students, and general readers curious about the Lutheran perspective on Christian faith.

This is one of the best books i have read, and i highly recommend it to pastors and teachers who know the necessity of a bold radical proclamation of the gospel. He encourages preachers to be uncompromising in their proclamation of the gospel in the face of evil... His insights into church history and what was at the heart of the reformers is a treasure to be received for the church today.

Gerhard O. Forde was a brilliant theologian for which all Lutheranism can be thankful. This book a collection of essays, shows his brilliant mind at work.
Upon receiving the book I devoured it. It was actually hard to put down. It forces you to look at subjects in completely new light, and is perhaps somewhat a corrective to both the most conservative of Lutheranism, and the most Liberal of Lutheranism.
I found especially helpful his essay on the meaning of Satis Est, and its implications for modern Ecumenical dialogue that seems to want to focus on everything but what is actually needed, agreement in the gospel and the sacraments.
His other Essays and sermons hammer home salvation by Grace through faith, in clear and compelling language leaving the sinner dead, and bringing the new man to life. Perhaps not all is to be agreed with, but none of it is to be ignored, and the Christian is impoverished for not reading and grappling with this book at all.

Like many others, I read Forde's _Where God Meets Man_ back in college, and it blew my mind. His unmistakably Lutheran critique of Lutheranism showed me how the truth that never changes still speaks across the centuries. Here is a guy who takes the "difficult" topics from the tradition (eg. Law/Gospel - Justification - Predestination - Theology of the Cross) and shows how they can still and should still inform our thought today. Most importantly, Forde shows this in closer to natural English than almost any other theologian.

That book was published back in the early 70's, and he has not stopped his work at all, and in this book two of his students have gathered together some of his best essays, talks, and sermons from the last thirty years. They are grouped topically into various categories and together with the introduction, provide a good one book overview of his thought.

Since the essays are meant to stand by themselves, there can be significant overlap between them, but this often helps the reader see how these topics can and do overlap and gives hints of how to treat other topics from the same Christocentric perspective.

Forde's Eschatology seems to have particularly developed since the 70's. I was aware of some of this from his sections of Braaten/Jenson _Christian Dogmatics_, but was not fully aware of how this had bloomed in his thought.

While I do not view this book as quite as important as _Where God Meets Man_, it is still a powerful witness to an often ignored voice - namely our tradition. The essays are small enough and self contained enough that they stand on their own, but after reading them in book form, it turns into a Gospel voice that crys out to world the good news of our savior. Very much recomended. Thanks to Lutheran Quarterly, Eerdmans, and Professors Mattes and Paulson for this much needed book.
