Review: The Fire and the Staff: Lutheran Theology in Practice

User Review  - Luke Brown - Goodreads

Strong rebuke of American evangelicalism, revivalism and the Church Growth Movement. Doctrine follows practice, he strongly asserts, and it has a negative affect on the assurance of our faith. I agreed with a lot of what he said, and other parts I'll have to think about. Read full review
