It is well that, when the "Pastor's Professional Growth" series was planned by the editors of the Theological Monthly, there was included in it also an article on the minister's professional growth in the study and knowledge of the confessions, both of our Lutheran Church and of other denominations. We state this because since time immemorial there has prevailed in some circles the false and hurtful notion that symbolics makes an extremely tedious study and that, since it is merely a sort of repetition of dogmatics ultimately matters very little whether one knows his Concordia or not.
