New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The one church is invisible in respect to the "who," and visible in respect to the "where."—Pastor Kurt Marquart, The Church, p. 23.

What a great quote! This is what I keep trying to tell my fellow Lutherans any time the subject comes up; but Pr Marquart puts it more concisely and more powerfully than I ever did. He was a gem, wasn't he?

On the strength of this quote I went to Amazon and ordered the book.

I agree. It's a gem—and so is Prof. Marquart's little treatise as a whole.

I read the book a while ago and didn't realize the significance of this statement. It helps clarify a lot of the debate, especially in understanding the valid points of both Walther and Loehe.
