Herberger's Great Works of God, vol. 2

I would like to take this opportunity to advertise the publication of my translation of parts 3–4 of Herberger's Great Works of God, now available for purchase from CPH. This volume contains his commentaries and Christological insights on Genesis chapters 16–50 (The first volume, with Genesis 1–15, can also be gotten at CPH or Amazon.com.) It's a little later this year than last year, but certainly not ill-timed for those looking for last minute gifts (or observing gift-giving customs until Epiphany)! So, in case you were wondering why the Lutheran Orthodoxy Blog has several posts about this important writer of the period, it is because I, as one of contributing members, have been immersed in Herberger's works for the past 4 years. Here is some of the fruit of that welcome time with this great writer.

Blessed Advent to you.
—Matthew Carver.


  1. Great work, Matthew. Thanks for another great volume!

  2. It would be cool if you could translate Der Passionzeiger too. I would totally buy it.

  3. Thanks for the kind words! I also hope that the Passionzeiger will be available in English soon, though that may be a few years off.
