Lutheran Theological Review is an annual journal published by the two seminary faculties of Lutheran Church–Canada. It provides a forum for our professors and pastors to publish their research, and for the seminaries to provide resources and to stimulate the minds of our pastorate and laity. Free copies are sent to every pastor in LCC, and paid subscriptions are available.

In public service to the church we also provide the full text in pdf format on our website. Click here to download volume 28, the latest issue. This volume, guest edited by Dr John Stephenson, contains sermons and essays from the 14 September 2015 conference, “Pastoral Perspectives on Paul”. The conference recognised the release of Dr Thomas Winger’s Concordia Commentary on Ephesians. In addition, there are essays by LCC’s Communications Manager, Mathew Block, and President James Gimbel of Concordia Lutheran Seminary, Edmonton.
