Product Description

About the Author

Martin Luther (1483, 1546) was a German monk, a theologian and church reformer, he is considered to be the founder of Protestantism. Luther was a professor of Bible at the University of Wittenberg when he posted his famous 95 Theses (1517). In addition to writing many books, Luther translated the Bible into German. Luther believed that salvation was only by faith in Jesus, unmediated by the church. He challenged papal authority by emphasing the Bible as the only source of religious authority and believed the church to be a priesthood of all believers.These ideas helped to inspire the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization. He married Katharina von Bora thus initiating the practice of clerical marriage within Protestantism.- Publisher.

Timothy F. Lullwas president of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkeley, and professor of systematic theology there before his death in 2003.

HASH(0x92ec89a8) out of 5 stars Great resource 15 April 2012
By Clint Walker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For several years now, I have become more interested in what the Reformer Martin Luther had to say in his writings. The problem is, I have not had any idea where to start in Luther's writings to hear what he had to say in his own words. So, when it became possible for me to get a copy of the new edition of the reader Martin Luther's Basic Theological Writings, I jumped at the opportunity.

For ease of reading, this collection of Luther's writings is organized thematically. This allows readers to quickly study what Martin Luther said on a certain subject, without having to wade through the chronological development of his thoughts. The subjects covered includes Luther's contributions to the academic disciplines of biblical studies, ethics, and theology, as well as more detailed discussion of certain issues, such as the sacraments, reform, and the nature of the gospel.

As is the case with many of the high quality academic works that Fortress publishes, the "extras" in the book are especially well done, and make the text even better. I especially enjoyed the timeline of the works of Luther in the front of the book, as well as glossary in the back.

Many of the entries in this book are excerpts from larger works by Luther. Other chapters contain entire "pamphlets" teaching about something or pursuading someone to a certain position. Together, the selections chosen give a well rounded picture of Luther as a man, a leader, a churchman, and theologian.

I think this book would be helpful for a number of people. For pastors who are like me, and believe that a pastor should be a pastor/theologian, this book will be great for becoming more familiar with Luther and his thought. For teachers and students in search of a textbook on Luther, this would be a great resource as well.

HASH(0x92fc636c) out of 5 stars Great addition to your library 17 Sept. 2015

This needs to be in your theological library. Lull's collection of Luther's works is invaluable to the theological student/pastor or layperson. It is easy to navigate and contains the great highlights that you need.

HASH(0x92f59870) out of 5 stars The portability of the text was wonderful as was the ability to highlight important passages 9 Feb. 2016

This was used as a class text the problem was it did not list page numbers (some kindle versions do) my professor was kind enough to look at the table of contents and let me know what I should be reading. The portability of the text was wonderful as was the ability to highlight important passages.

Nice selection, useful for my classes at an international seminary where I don't have the complete works available.. I find the introductory statements useful for my understanding.

Glad it's not in German or Latin. The English is hard enough.
