What a Way to Spend Memorial Day
It was perfect. Why? I spent it with Krauth and Bayer. (Cindi spent the morning scrapbooking with Jo, so I really did get some quality reading time in). Krauth I came to respect more and more; Bayer I came to scratch my head over more than a little. Bayer's got some really good stuff, but golly day in the morning does it ever take him forever just to spit it out. Krauth, on the other hand, is just dense with goodies. In Krauth I've been exploring especially again his treatment of the Supper. His demonstration from the Fathers about the true doctrine of the Eucharist was amazingly thorough and insightful - what I've come to expect of the man. I ask again: WHY wasn't I made to read this theologian at seminary? I would definitely include his writings as a MUST for theological education in the Lutheran Church.
