Modern Lutheran Quote of the Day

And how is the clergyman to find the books, or buy them when found, or read them when bought, destitute as he is too wont be, alike of money and time? We reply, that ann immense treasure lies in a narrow compass, and within that reach of every minister of our land. By a careful study of the symbolic books of our Church, commencing with the Augsburg Confession and its Apology, a more thorough understanding of the history, difficulties, true genius, and triumphs of the Reformation will be attained, than by reading everything that can be got, or that has ever been written about that memorable moment.
