As an experienced theology teacher, Franklin Weidner looked to spread knowledge through his writing. He wrote works to benefit theology students and teachers across all denominations—not just his own students and fellow Lutheran theologians. In an ambitious undertaking, Weidner sought to explain the major divisions of dogmatics and provide a foundation for teaching them. These texts are the culmination of over 20 years of teaching, and are based on Christoph Ernst Luthardt’s famous text, Kompendium der Dogmatik, as well as the works of his own teacher, Charles Porterfield Krauth.
