"Concordia Discordia" posted a week ago by Aardvark Alley discusses the recent LCMS Doctrinal Review decision to revoke their certification of the Reader's Edition of the Lutheran Confessions. The post also includes commentary and sources and links to others who have been commenting on this topic.

Also worthy of a look is Watersblogged's "If the Confessions may contradict your position", as well as Cyberstone's posting of Pastor John Frahm's Fact Sheet on Concordia: The Lutheran Confessions.
On with the Concordiareaders! I had hoped to start off with a few biographical sketches of people who had in one way or another attached themselves to the Lutheran Confessions. Opening the floor up to suggestions, Harry kindly commented about how the Confessions had impacted his life. It wasn't quite where I had intended to go (I was thinking mostly about dead people,) but it might make for interesting conversation to hear from living people how the Lutheran Confessions have impacted their lives. Eventually, my goal is to take up some of the well-known historical figures (C. F. W. Walther, Wilhelm Loehe, Hermann Sasse, Samuel Simon Schmucker) and look at how they interacted with the Lutheran Confessions.
