Church Fellowship

The People’s Bible Teachings is a series of books on all of the main doctrinal teachings of the Bible. Following the pattern set by The People’s Bible series, these books are written especially for laypeople. The authors of The People’s Bible Teachings are parish pastors and professors who have had years of experience teaching the Bible.

This book examines three parts of a doctrine– taught by God in Scripture– that has led to separations in church bodies, congregations, and families. Church Fellowship, from the People’s Bible Teachings Series, brings understanding to the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) practice of closed Communion and opposition to lodges and scouting. It reviews the historic Lutheran debate for new generations and teaches us to show love for our neighbors as we assert a clear testimony to the truth.
