|One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism|
Von Hagel, Thomas A. Beskrivelse.
Paul wrote his letter to the Ephesians while he was a prisoner and reminded them of what Gods great power and grace has done for believers. He refers to the calling of all Christians to faith through the grace of God and states that in order to establish and maintain the unity of the one true Church, we are asked to confess one Lord, one faith, one baptism. This book, a collection of short, 1-2 page biographies, offers a means to understand history through the heroes of the Christian faith as they confessed the truths of Christ and His teachings. It includes an introduction to the role of the saints in the Church from a Lutheran perspective, the relation between Christian lives, and the life of Christ. Read about Adam Eve Isaac Samson Ruth Mary John Stephen Paul Lawrence Cyprian Gregory I Origen Polycarp Benedict Hilda Francis Augustine Elizabeth I John Gerhard Martin Luther George Whitefield John the Alsgiver Constantine Mary the Younger John Calvin C.
