Reclaiming Lutheran Confirmation

All New Briefs

Oliver Olson has written a 72 page monograph revisiting the practice of confirmation.  Says Mark Mattes in his introduction: “If we were to adopt the implication of Olson’s work, admit that a grave error was made in the late 1960’s, the educational program of the church for young people would look quite different. We would reassess our beliefs about the relations between confirmation and first communion. We would also increase our expectations for young people’s admission to the Lord’s Supper.”  Review in Logia.
