Professor Emeritus, LeRoy Aden, formerly of the Lutheran Seminary in Philadelphia and Adjunct Professor at Princeton Theological Seminary has just published with Wipf and Stock a volume of 116 pages entitled Guilt and the Search for Fulfillment. LeRoy is an articulate theologian deeply ensconced in the historic Lutheran equation of Law and Gospel. He knows more about guilt personally and theologically than anyone else I know. As in all his published works, he demonstrates here his superb skill in sharing his perspective with us in a highly readable style for anyone from a bright high schooler to an inquiring graduate student. The style is very similar to that of his 2005 Augsburg volume, In Life and Death, The Shaping of Faith. This book exudes the passion and heart of the pastor that Aden is in all his relationships. It would be nice if the book had zeroed in more aggressively and plainly upon the radical notion of universal and unconditional grace, which seems to be the core of Pauline and Johannine theology, as well as that of the Covenant of Grace in Genesis 12 and 17. However, to do that Aden would have had to depart from the classical line in the ortho Theology of Scripture, the fatal flaw of Christendom since the Ecumenical Creeds of the 4th and 5th centuries.
