THE BRIDE OF CHRIST has been published four times per year by Lutheran Liturgical Renewal, Inc., a non-profit society of evangelical catholics who have united to recall the Evangelical Lutheran Church to the position of the Reformers as stated in the Augsburg Confession, Article XXI, "There is nothing [in our confession] that varies from the Scriptures, from the Church Catholic, or from the Church of Rome as known from its writers." Lutheran Liturgical Renewal, Inc., is dedicated to the production and distribution of materials that exhibit a catholic form of doctrine, liturgy, and ministry. from the masthead of the last published issue:

WELCOME to the blog for THE BRIDE OF CHRIST: The Journal of Lutheran Liturgical Renewal (BOC). This is a resurrection of the BOC Journal website which is dedicated to the publication of "The Bride of Christ" and Lutheran Liturgical Renewal. With the resurrection of this site it is our hope that THE BRIDE OF CHRIST will once again see publication, either as a published quarterly journal, or in a digital version, or both. To this end we are re-constructing the website and are offering a companion blog for the purpose of discussing issues related to the journal and Lutheran Liturgical Renewal. Miscellaneous articles, essays, etc. from past issues will be made available on the blog from time to time. We invite you to join us in the discussion and share your ideas and suggestions.

1. Providing a digital version of the journal.
2. Use of the journal as a print forum in connection to the annual St. Michael Liturgical Conference.
3. Call for papers - articles, papers, book reviews.
4. Additional suggestions.

Thank you for visiting the blog. We hope to hear from you.

In Christ,
Rev. Timothy D. May
