The Baier/Walther Compendium served as the systematic theology
textbook for the first few generations of Lutheran Church --
Missouri Synod pastors. Written in Latin, it is a revised edition
of a classic work by the Seventeenth Century Lutheran dogmatian
Johannes Baier. This edition contains an english translation of
the theses at the head of each chapter. Later editions will offer
the full text of the work.
