“An Indispensable Resource for Everyone Involved in Lutheran Education”

The Pedagogy of Faith, New Release from Concordia Publishing House


Concordia Publishing House announces the release of The Pedagogy of Faith: Essays on Lutheran Education. This collection of essays from various teachers, pastors, and parents involved in Lutheran education covers a diverse group of topics that will surely edify any reader, but the collection’s teaching-focused theology, illuminating insights, and practical classroom tools make it essential for Lutheran educators.

Bernard Bull, the editor of the volume, points out that “The Pedagogy of Faith is the first of its kind in Lutheran education.” While many great books have been written on the topic of Lutheran education, none to date have assembled such a varied group of authors and topics. Each essay presents important concepts as the authors provide their experienced perspective for today’s Lutheran educator.

The Pedagogy of Faith is divided into three sections: Foundations; Teaching and Learning; and Context and Culture. Each section addresses important elements of the Lutheran educator’s vocation with theological surety and nuanced practicality.

And when they’ve read it, educators can’t put the collection down.

The Pedagogy of Faith is an indispensable resource for everyone involved in Lutheran education whether in the classroom, the home, or the parish.”

—The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Philp

Director of Institutional Research and Integrity

“Here is something for everyone. . . . This little gem should find itself on the desk of every teacher and administrator in the LCMS. It should be read, digested, and discussed by every teacher who desires to remain engaged in the hard work of educating the next generation.”

—Rev. Bart Day

Executive Director
