Rather than asking if theology is theoretical or practical--a question which reveals a fundamental lack of understanding about the nature of theology in general--the better question is what exactly is theology? It is this question that Bayer attempts to answer in Theology the Lutheran Way, clearing up misconceptions about theology's very nature. Rather than being something we do, Bayer, along with Luther himself, claims that theology is what God does. Based primarily on the third section of Bayer's original German work of the same title, this book is a consideration of the main problems of prolegomena. Predominantly a systematic theology, it evaluates certain approaches to theology that have been influential, from Schleiermacher's understanding of theology to debate with Kant, Hegel, and Bultmann. It also includes a substantial section on Luther from the original in order to clarify the tradition, which anchors the present work. Like its original German counterpart, Theology the Lutheran Way will be a useful handbook in systematic theology for students, pastors, and teachers of theology.
