Table of Contents
This is a comprehensive and systematic
survey of Martin Luther's entire thought by
an internationally recognized authority in
the field of Reformation research. The main
theological questions which engaged the
Reformer's attention are set forth in clear
and simple fashion, along with a host of
quotations from this own writings to
illumine the presentation. Scholars and
laypersons alike will appreciate the more
than a thousand instances in which the
author allows Luther to speak forcefully and
directly for himself.
"It is likely to remain a standard source book for American theologians for some time to come."
"In this book, Althaus further distinguishes himself by demonstrating a marked capacity to communicate the profundities of Lutheran theology in a strikingly lucid, comprehensible way...a wholesome exercise for both the Lutheran scholar and the uninitiated."
