Mark Mattes Publishes 13th Book Project

June 20, 2019

Dr. Mark Mattes, Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Grand View, has published his 13th book project. The book he edited is a collection of the works of his mentor at Luther Seminary, Gerhard Forde. It is titled “The Essential Forde:  Distinguishing Law and Gospel.”  

Organized around "Law and Gospel," the selections start off with some historical background on that doctrinal locus, but for the most part express Forde's own views of the law and the gospel, including death and resurrection, the bondage of the will, good works, preaching, and the sacraments.
