The Rev. Dr. Maurice Lee
This is arguably Philip Melanchthon’s most important work. Anyone interested in the history of the Lutheran Reformation will find that this book, the first Lutheran work of “systematic theology,” is presented in a very lively, accessible English translation, with extensive, helpful footnotes that explain the people and concepts used by Melanchthon to explain the Gospel.
Maurice Lee is the pastor of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Abington, Pennsylvania, a lecturer in theology for the North American Lutheran Seminary, and a member of the North American Lutheran Church’s (NALC) Commission on Theology and Doctrine. He was educated at Wheaton College, the California Institute of Technology, Fuller Theological Seminary and Yale University, and did postdoctoral work at Harvard University and taught at Westmont College before becoming involved with the NALC. He lives with his family in Abington, Pennsylvania.
