More > death, under the title Casual -Predigten und Reden [in 616 pages] . Heavily emphasized in the collection are the Reformation and themes of repentance, as well as the informal services very much still common in the church, like weddings and funerals.

This exhortation to use rather than abuse the Sacrament needs a hearing in the modern church! Avail yourself of this glimpse of nineteenth century Lutheranism and be opened to the possibility that we contemporary Lutherans yet have something to learn from C.F.W. Walther today!
