"The Lord's Supper in the Lutheran Church" Herman Sasse

This is a great letter Sasse wrote to Lutheran pastors speaking of the importance of the Lord's Supper and how it was being neglected by the Lutherans. I like what he says in here about theology:

"All genuine theology must proceed from the principle of speaking where God's Word speaks and being silent when God's Word is silent. For this reason, Luther is the greatest teacher of the church for us, because he held unshaken to this principle even when the great temptation came to him, in which even the greatest theologians have always been caught at some point, to let something else hold sway in addition to the Word of God."
