Critical reviews (by Lutheran pastors and church musicians) of books and other resources for Christian worship, preaching, and church music from a perspective rooted in Holy Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and good common sense. LHP Quarterly Book Review asks, "Is it worth the money to buy, the time to read, the shelf space to store, and the effort to teach?"
Celebrating the completion of a Chinese-language translation project
Missionaries, theologians and educators are celebrating the translation of "The Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature." This publication will serve as a reference for Chinese-speaking leaders and other scholars for generations to come. It was only 30 years ago that the Bible was forbidden in China. Now, this translation, and others like it, shows that the Gospel is spreading throughout the country.
Dr. Jeffrey Oschwald, former professor of New Testament scholarship at China Lutheran Seminary in Hsinchu, Taiwan, and current professor at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, Mo., shared, "The implications of publishing a research tool of this quality are very far-reaching, from the training of pastors and teachers to the practice of ministry in the field, from direct study of the New Testament text to the production of translations, commentaries and the full spectrum of biblical study tools."
