Martin Luther: Selections from His Writings

Overview

The development of Martin Luther's thought was both a symptom and moving force in the transformation of the Middle Ages into the modern world. Geographical discovery, an emerging scientific tradition, and a climate of social change had splintered the unity of medieval Christian culture, and these changes provided the background for Luther's theological challenge.

Overview

The development of Martin Luther's thought was both a symptom and moving force in the transformation of the Middle Ages into the modern world. Geographical discovery, an emerging scientific tradition, and a climate of social change had splintered the unity of medieval Christian culture, and these changes provided the background for Luther's theological challenge. His new apprehension of Scripture and fresh understanding of man's relation to God demanded a break with the Church as then constituted and released the powerful impulses that carried the Reformation. Luther's vigorous, colorful language still retains the excitement it had for thousands of his contemporaries. In this volume, Dr. Dillenberger has made a representative selection from Luther's extensive writings, and has also provided the reader with a lucid introduction to his thought.

    Best (only?) inexpensive Luther anthology

    Unchanged since its first appearance 50 years ago (down to the back-cover copy), this is pretty much the only game in town for a general Luther anthology. Fortress Press has a larger one w/ a CD-ROM too, but it's $50 or more. This volume gives you the "greatest hits" and lets you appreciate what Luther was up to. Don't miss the Heidelberg theses tucked into the back of the volume, with their essential exposition of the "theology of the cross."

    Made me think differently about Luther

    This book is a must have, both as an introduction to Luther and as a detailed account of what Luther actually taught and believed. The translation is easy to read, without overly simplifying complex theological concepts. I was raised Catholic, and as such I tended to view Luther with suspicion. This book changed my mind and shows how in love Luther was with not only the Bible, but the Church. The book shows Luther's progression from pointing out a few excesses of the Church to his all-out war on the 'Romanists'. This book will help one to appreciate the Protestant Revolution and the Reformation more completely.

    A shocking revelation from the past!

    This book gives an excellent overview of the beliefs of Martin Luther through his writings. You can hear God speaking through Luther's works as he searched the scriptures to find the truth amidst the great apostasy that Paul wrote of. His philosophy of 'Bible only' is as useful today as it was in Luther's time. As a former Lutheran I was very surprised (if not shocked) at the results when I compared the teachings/beliefs of Martin Luther to the teachings/beliefs of the present day Lutheran Church especially with regards to such topics as the state of the dead, eternal torment, keeping the ten commandments, and even the identity of the beast of revelation (Babylon the great). You can see how the Lutheran church has flat out rejected the Bible truths taught by Luther in favor of popular tradition even though it still keeps his name. A must see for Lutherans and all Christians. This book is a must for furthering your Christian experience and studying the word of God as well as avoiding the obstacles Satan has placed in our path.
