    This book is a collection of three loosely related novellas about the cure of souls in Lutheran Sweden It is all very good, and parts of it are glorious I think it would be particularly encouraging to pastors involved in the hard slog of pastoral care.

    Bo Giertz s book, The Hammer of God, covers the theological drama that unfolds in a small Swedish parish of Odesjo over 150 years Each generation struggles with its expression of piety along with struggles with legalism, liberalism, and so forth Even though each of the stories is separated by time and space, there is continuity to the whole book because of its location and the centrality of the Gospel as a solution to each time period s struggle.More specifically, James Nestingen comments on Bo Giertz s book, The Hammer of God, covers the theological drama that unfolds in a small Swedish parish of Odesjo over 150 years Each generation struggles with its expression of piety along with struggles with legalism, liberalism, and so forth Even though each of the stories is separated by time and space, there is continuity to the whole book because of its location and the centrality of the Go...

    Five stars for the theology this book is really on point with solid doctrine and the pitfalls of error Two stars for the fiction I found it boring and repetitive, though some of that may be translation.

    I ve had this book on my physical shelf for a long time Possibly two years, I m not sure I was putting off reading it because I knew it was a Lutheran book and I was a little wary of how Lutheran it might be I wasn t interested in something that was like reading the catechism or the Book of Concord.Thankfully, it wasn t like that at all In reality, the book doesn t talk much of Lutheranism, it simply preaches Jesus only grace, redemption, and salvation through Christ alone Yes, this is I ve had this book on my physical shelf for a long time Possibly two years, I m not sure I was putting off reading it because I knew it was a Lutheran book and I was a little wary of how Lutheran it might be I wasn t interested in something that was like...
