Confessional Lutherans are those Lutherans who subscribe to the Book of Concord because ("quia") it is entirely faithful to the Bible. This is in contrast to nonconfessional Lutherans, who subscribe to the Book of Concord as far as ("quatenus") it agrees with the Bible.
Confessional Lutherans tend to be more Conservative in their views. About 20% of Lutherans identify as confessional.
