5.0 out of 5 stars A Theologian For Our Times May 26 2004
The import of this theologian is so vital to our time, long running schism and division within, questioning and quarreling over what is the identity of a Lutheran?
This was Chemnitz's context, and God was very gracious through this man, who by luxury of being a librarian, became very well read in theology and especially that of the early church fathers. God used this particualarly later on with his magnificent evidence for the two natures of Christ.
Preus has devoted much of his life to translating Chemnitz from Latin, and has left a wonderful heritage. Here, though, he departs from translation and gives us a theological biography that is rich in its scope and wordsmithing. If anyone today knows Chemnitz, it is Preus.
Chemnitz was all about sources, not about cutting down personalities in debate. The Formula of Concord was the outcome primarily due to his work of resolving theological tension. Oh, the Lutherans today would use this as our model.
Worth finding before it goes out of print, or finding a copy somewhere for your reading and library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A readable biography with summaries of Chemnitz' major works Oct. 14 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
A must for the Chemnitz fan (yes, there are some out there)! This is a very readable biography of the 16th century Lutheran theologian and pastor who helped systematize and defend the teachings of the Lutheran Reformation. Along with the chronological and personal information on Martin Chemnitz' personal life, this volume also contains summaries of his major works i.e. The Two Natures of Christ, Loci Theologica, The Lord's Supper, and The Examination of the Council of Trent. Chemnitz is shown to be both a major theologian of his day and a parish pastor and district supervisor who delt with the everyday needs and concerns of God's people.
