The best one-volume reader of Martin Luther's writings, this volume has become the gold standard for use in seminary and college environments. It not only offers all of Luther's most influential, noted, and important writings in the modern translations from the American Edition of Luther's Works. It also offers excerpts of sermons and letters that shed direct light on Luther's own religious and theological development.This new edition adds several other texts that teachers have identified and, on the CD-ROM, includes a biography of Luther, a historical timeline, links to Reformation-era graphics, links to biographies and pictures of key Reformation figures, and a glossary of key theological terms. Timothy F. Lull was President of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley, and Professor of Systematic Theology at PLTS and in the Graduate Theological Union.
