A lost treasure has been found! The Apocrypha, which went missing in action in English speaking Lutheranism, has been restored. Since the time of Luther's first complete Bible translation, through the hundreds of years that followed, faithful Lutheran theologians, pastors and laity had the Apocrypha as part of their Bibles and spiritual heritage. It was quoted in doctrinal works, devotional works and in sermons by all orthodox confessional Lutherans, down to the days of C.F.W. Walther who referenced it in his writings and sermons. But, when the church here in America, the Apocrypha was lost because it was not printed in English Bibles that were used by Lutherans. Now, for the first time, a special Lutheran study edition is ready for you to dig into.
