Pastor Trevor Faggotter from Australia has been needling me for some time to do a ThTh review of John Kleinig's book proposing a "Lutheran" spirituality.

Key, says Trevor, for Kleinig is Luther's understanding of the posture of "faith" being the posture of receptivity.
Grace Upon Grace: Spirituality for Today, by John Kleinig. St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House. 2008. 287pp. $15.99 [10.92 Amazon]
John Kleinig has served the church as a lecturer at Luther Seminary in Adelaide, South Australia-specialising in the Old Testament. In an age when everyone is supposedly spiritual, and the trading of spiritual wares is at a premium, his book, 'Grace Upon Grace' serves the church by teaching us to rediscover receptivity spirituality-God's gift in Christ through the gospel.
Christian spirituality, John shows us, is better likened to being a beggar than what often amounts to little more than play acting. However, John sets the context for our life as spiritual beggars squarely within the liturgical life of the Christian church, amidst the attendance at Divine Service, where Father, Son and Spirit serve the receptive community of faith, and where God's people participate, through faith in Christ Jesus' merits and ministry, in baptism, the hearing of God's Word in the gospel story, the intercessory prayers, the saying of the creeds, the Lord's Supper, the fellowship and the deeds of mercy and service.
As a steward of the mysteries of God, John really likes to emphasise the matter of mystery, and so we have chapter headings as follows: The Mystery of Christ, The Mystery of Meditation, The Mystery of Prayer, The Hidden Battle and Hidden Holiness.

From Luther's Works (10:17), translation by John Kleinig in Lutheran Theological Journal 20 (1986): 143.

All Sin is Rooted in Unbelief
Uniquely of the reformers, Martin Luther fleshed out the teaching of scripture that faith provides victory over sin, based upon the writings of John.
And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith" (1 John 5:4 NKJV). Luther further drew from John's gospel that unbelief is the root sin, the sin of man, (See John 3:18, 5:23, 12:48, and 16:3.) In one of Luther's sermons on the gospel of John, Luther states: "Unbelief is the chief sin, and the source of all other sins.
And, in a sermon based upon John 3:16-21, the remedy for sin is faith, "for faith makes our stink not to rise up to God.

Stoner, Jr. and Donna M. Hughes.
Lewis desired to rehabilitate friendship as a virtue, as in the Biblical example of David and Jonathan.
The Angel Gabriel prophesied that John the Baptist would be "filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb" (Luke 1:15). At six months gestation in Elizabeth's womb, the preborn John recognized the voice of Mary who
And when these words and sounds follow familiar patterns that are repeated often, like the confessing of the Creed or the signing of a familiar part of the liturgy, the response can be similar to that of the preborn John the Baptist.
