$44.00
The Cross of Reality investigates Bonhoeffers interpretation and use of Luthers theology in shaping his Christology. In this essay, H. Gaylon Barker uses the theology of the cross as a key to understanding the characteristic elements that make up Bonhoeffers theology; he also shows how Bonhoeffers conversation with his teachers and contemporaries, Karl Holl and Karl Barth in particular, develops.

Early Luther: Stages in a Reformation Reorientation

product image
$36.00
The development of Martin Luther's thought has commanded much scholarly attention because of the Reformation and its remarkable effects on the history of Christianity in the West. But much of that scholarship has been so enthralled by certain later debates that it has practically ignored and even distorted the context in and against which Luther's thought developed. In The Early Luther Berndt Hamm, armed with expertise both in late-medieval intellectual life and in Luther, presents new perspectives that leave old debates behind.
A master Luther scholar, Hamm provides fresh insights into the development of Luther's theology from his entry into the monastery through his early lectures on the Bible to his writing of the 95 Theses in 1517 and The Freedom of a Christian in 1520. Rather than looking for a single breakthrough, Hamm carefully outlines a series of significant shifts in Luther's late-medieval theological worldview over the course of his early career. The result is a more accurate, nuanced portrait of Reformation giant Martin Luther.

Fruit for the Soul: Luther on the Lament Psalms

Fruit for the Soul: Luther on the Lament Psalms
$29.00

Given a life spent in scholarship and controversy, it is easy to forget how much energy Martin Luther devoted to helping the common person understand and take comfort from God's word. This commitment extended to even the most challenging of biblical texts, and nowhere is this more apparent than Luther's work on the lament Psalms. Difficult to understand, and perhaps even more difficult to implement in life and devotion, the lament Psalms played a key role in Luther's thought. More importantly, the lament Psalms were for Luther an essential part of the Christian's understanding of the life of faith.

In this volume, Dennis Ngien helps contemporary readers engage Luther's commentary on the lament Psalms. What Luther intended for the education and encouragement of everyday Christians, Ngien unpacks and illuminates for life in the twenty-first century.

Introduced and commended by Robert Kolb, the volume will be appreciated by teacher and student alike.

Luther's Letters of Spiritual Counsel

product image
$29.95
Martin Luther is often thought of as a world-shaking figure who defied papacy and empire to introduce a reformation in the teaching, worship, organization, and life of the Church. Sometimes it is forgotten that he was also a pastor and shepherd of souls. Collected in this volume are Luther's letters of spiritual counsel, which he offered to his contemporaries in the midst of sickness, death, persecution, imprisonment, famine, and political instability. For Luther, spiritual counsel was about establishing, nurturing, and strengthening faith. Freshly translated from the original German and Latin, the letters shed light on the fascinating relationship between his pastoral counsel and his theology. Theodore G. Tappert taught Church History at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He also translated Pia Desideria by Philip Jacob Spener and The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

Martin Luther and the Called Life

Martin Luther and the Called Life
$24.00
One of the hallmarks of Luthers theology was its concern for daily life. In the midst of debates about justification and salvation, church authority, and the Lords Supper, Luther himself demonstrated his own powerful sense of vocation. In this refreshing book, Mark D. Tranvik turns attention to the importance of vocation in Luthers life and in doing so discovers renewed insights into this important doctrine. Drawing from the rich experience of twenty years of teaching undergraduates, Tranvik balances the historical roots of Luthers thought and contemporary relevance with skill and vigor.
