5.0 out of 5 stars Traces the stages in Luther's thought-fine critical analysis, 23 Jan 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: LUTHERS THEOL OF THE CROSS: Martin Luther's Theological Breakthrough (Paperback)
Taking Luther's theology of the cross as the reformer's chief and most distinctive contribution to Christian thought, Mc Grath traces the stages in Luther's thought from his theological background in the via moderna, to this new position which broke so radically with it. Part 1 of the book starts with Luther as a late medieval theologian and reviews the theological climate at Wittenburg. Part 2 deals with Luther's breakthrough of 1515 which led to a departure from scholasticism through a development of a "theology of the cross" in which every salvific moment of a person's life is attributed to God and to Christ and not to the sinner who is justified. McGrath shows a fine critical analysis, not only of Luther's mind and theology, but of the complex scholastic background into which Luther was born and to which he addressed himself. McGrath has a clear grasp of the intellectual climate of the late medeival period.
