I am a lutheran and i am wanting to see what is up with the PBB.   I was contemplating creating a book in docx format to learn about PBB and what it really takes to do it.....i do not have any idea what book you lutherans might want.....Consider this an offer of free labor.....if it is a big deal...it will take me longer....if its easy.....i will not take as long.  Just let me know what you'll want and i will choose from the offers and then give my creation out.....

I'm not a Lutheran but some of the position papers of the ELCA, MSL or other group would be nice. You can find links to them by searching for "lutheran" or "church document" on the reading lists. These are under copyright and I don't know the Lutheran policy - for Catholics one has rather broad copy & share rights.

Martha,

That's a good idea.  I was sort of thinking of a public access book for copywrite issues.   Maybe Melanchthan or one of our other fathers would have something that is not available in Logos.....I just don't know...

May want to look in Files forum; have noticed several Personal Books posted by Kenneth McGuire including => Krauth - Baptism

Internet search finds a dozen threads:

Unfortunately, the ones I really really want are not only in Swedish, they also don't seem to have any electronic files available... Crying

If it's possible for copyright reasons I'd also very much like the official Lutheran/Catholic dialogue documents.

Scriver's The Soul's Treasure would also be worth having if you can locate a file. I haven't read it, but I ought to some day; it was incredibly influential on Swedish folk piety. The same goes for Tersteegen, though with Wikipedia down I can't easily check the English title right now.

Look at http://justandsinner.blogspot.com/2011/01/free-lutheran-kindle-books.html  It's a list of books available for free that the blog owner converted to Kindle. The symbol/confessional ones would interest me.

A vast library is out there. Take a look at http://www.archive.org/search.php?query=subject%3A%22Lutheran%20Church%22%20AND%20mediatype%3Atexts

What is your interest?  Theological Classics?  What is a classic and what is rubbish is, uh, debated.  I have tried to find some significant texts and put them out there, but am admittedly an amateur and I have my priorities...  One problem is to find things in English that are classics for more than just any wing.  Too many of the 16th and 17th century figures were left in Latin and German dress for too long.

Devotional?  Loehe's Seed Grains of Prayer would be good - or Gerhard's Sacred Meditations, or some of Catherine Winkworth's translations of the chorales (even if her background did lead to her missing the sacramental imagery in some of them)

Pretty soon I will be doing http://www.archive.org/details/funeralsermonsby00schu or http://www.archive.org/details/iamresurrectionl01amer for some Lutheran preaching, as well as some sources from the Predestination Controversy...  The list of stuff out there is more than I can put out there myself.

I would like this too - the problem is copyright.

At one point I created a personal edition of the "Joint Declaration" but have not shared it because I haven't bothered to check on rights.  It is freely available on the Vatican web site (http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_councils/chrstuni/sub-index/index_lutheran-fed.htm) but just because it is on a web site doesn't mean you have permission to distribute it yourself...  Have to check out Rome's permissions first...

Ok,

It seems this small Number of return postings is what I need to choose from.  I personally was considering something but, I wanted to let someone else choose for me this time.....To see if Ican get it formatted properly and such.  Martha, which ones specifically would you want?  I saw a website that had letters and such written between Rome and World Lutheran Org.  etc...   I could probably put all the letters in  a book....

What are you'll thinking or hoping??

I think the 5 documents on http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/pontifical_councils/chrstuni/sub-index/index_lutheran-fed.htm  which are available in English compiled as a single book would be of interest to Lutherans, Catholics and a number of others. This covers the issue of justification - but not the question of eucharist.  I'll try to find the correct agency for a copy of the latter - but I think justification is a topic of more general interest.

William, once you've created the PB and gotten it all tagged and ready to share with others, please post it in the Files forum so I'll notice it and can create a link to it in the new wiki page http://wiki.logos.com/User_Contributed_Personal_Books
