Overview

Christoph Ernst Luthardt once said, “the truth which we need and seek is God—the living, personal God. This is the truth which is the foundation of the Christian view of the universe.” From this perspective, Luthardt grounds his lectures and essays of theology and science. In his apologetics, he speaks of a personal, knowable God, and of a singular true religion: “But, above all, Christianity is religion,” Luthardt writes. “The old world [religions] concluded with the question, What is Truth? The new era began with the saying of Christ, I am the Truth. And this saying is the confession of Christian faith.”

Luthardt stands tall among confessional Lutheran theologians of the Erlangen and Liepzig schools. Studied and cited by Bonhoeffer, Bavinck, and Torrey, Luthardt is an unforgettable theologian with a sharp wit and theological insights for any Christian.
