Generally the Lutheran Confessions are understood in the traditional sense as the normative sources for Lutheran doctrine; in addition, they are also documents which offer valuable missiological insights. To support the latter observation the following study attempts to read the Lutheran Confessions with a heightened missiological perspective. Such a reading takes up the interests and concerns frequently raised by Lutheran theologians who in light of the increasing changes in mission see the theological integrity of Lutheran mission endangered. Consequently, they plea for a return to the Book of Concord from which guiding principles for Lutheran mission m Confessions, though, should not be regarded as a violation of the original message and primary intent of the Confessions but should rather be seen as a legitimate attempt to elucidate their missionary affirmations inherent to their theology must be taken. This proposed missiological interpretation of the Confessions, though, should not be regarded as a violation of the original message and primary intent3 of the Confessions but should rather be seen as a legitimate attempt to elucidate their missionary affirmations inherent to their theology.
