Mission Statement

LOGIA is a quarterly journal of Lutheran theology published by The Luther Academy featuring articles from diverse contributors worldwide on exegetical, historical, systematic, and liturgical theology that promote the orthodoxy of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. We cling to God’s divinely instituted marks of the church: the gospel, preached purely in all its articles, and the sacraments, administered according to Christ’s institution.

In Greek, LOGIA functions either as an adjective meaning “eloquent,” “learned,” or “cultured,” or as a plural noun meaning “divine revelations,” “words,” or “messages.” The word is found in 1 Peter 4:11, Acts 7:38 and Romans 3:2. Its compound forms include homologia (confession), apologia (defense), and analogia (right relationship). Each of these concepts and all of them together express the purpose and method of this journal.

LOGIA is committed to providing an independent theological forum normed by the prophetic and apostolic Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. At the heart of our journal we want our readers to find a love for the sacred Scriptures as the very Word of God, not merely as rule and norm, but especially as Spirit, truth, and life which reveals Him who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life—Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore, we confess the church, without apology and without rancor, only with a sincere and fervent love for the precious Bride of Christ, the holy Christian church, “the mother that begets and bears every Christian through the Word of God,” as Martin Luther says in the Large Catechism (LC II, 42). We are animated by the conviction that the Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession represents the true expression of the church which we confess as one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.

We are also distributors of confessional Lutheran resources, such as the Confessional Lutheran Dogmatics, the Pieper Lectures, and other media from theological conferences.

LOGIA is indexed in the ATLA Religion Database, published by the American Theological Library Association, 250 S. Wacker Drive, Suite 1600, Chicago, IL 60606
