Remember our recent discussion about "Where are the Lutherans?", responding to another blog complaining that Lutherans are invisible in the evangelical world? Well, here is a post from Tullian Tchividjian. He is a Reformed pastor, the grandson of Billy Graham and the successor to the late D. James Kennedy as pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian church. He describes reading The Hammer of God by the Swedish Lutheran bishop and novelist Bo Giertz. The result? A "Copernican revolution" in his ministry:
I would add that I have just reviewed a manuscript by Rev. Tchividjian entitled Jesus + Nothing = Everything, in which he describes his growing understanding of the Gospel, with the help of writers including Gerhard Forde, C. F. W. Walther, and Harold Senkbeil. So there are the Lutherans for contemporary evangelicals.
