Writing with the premise that any Christian dogmatics must be a systematized, biblical dogmatics, traditional Lutheran theologian Andrew Voigt provides a succinct treatment of core confessional Christian doctrines, including God, humanity, sin, Christ, redemption, the Holy Spirit, the means of grace, and the church. Voigt demonstrates both the exegetical justification and internal coherence of the doctrines, establishing them as not mere deductions but as expressions of the Christian faith given through divine revelation. As Voigt states, “The study of Christian doctrine must view the question of the essence of religion from the standpoint of Christianity, which assumes that true religion is given from above. It begins with the judgment of faith that the Christian has the true religion.”
