Martin Luther believed that Baptism is the foundational sacrament. Among Lutherans, Baptism has not received the level of attentions generally given to the Eucharist or to the recently renewed interest in the practice of private confession and absolution.
Luther did not value one means of grace over another in offering forgiveness, but he did make distinctions. He viewed each sacrament as having a unique function, and one could not be substituted for another. Baptism was not simply an entrance ceremony into the Christian community, but was equated with the Christian life and established the church's boundaries.
Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics (CLD) Series is based upon the outline and thought pattern of the Lutheran Confessions. The series is strictly and consciously confessional in its presentation of doctrine and its assessment and analysis of modern theological trends throughout the Christian church.
