Product Description

Martin Luther is best known for the way in which his writings and speeches caused a radical Reformation of the Church in the sixteenth century. It is forgotten that Luther was first and foremost a pastor with a heart for his people. In fact, the Reformation started because Luther was concerned what his parishioners were believing about salvation and the necessity to purchase indulgences. This volume is an English translation of works of Luther with the theme of pastoral care. These are personal letters Luther wrote to encourage, admonish, and exhort his friends and those in his church. These are timeless messages of spiritual guiding from a historical theologian.

The Library of Christian Classics has long been acclaimed for its quality translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes. The series ensures that modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological works written before the end of the sixteenth century are available for scholars and students, allowing contemporary readers to mine the theological riches of the Christian church though the centuries.

Publisher's Description

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. Freshly translated from the original German and Latin, the letters shed light on the fascinating relationship between his pastoral counsel and his theology.

Long recognized for the quality of its translations, introductions, explanatory notes, and indexes, the Library of Christian Classics provides scholars and students with modern English translations of some of the most significant Christian theological texts in history. Through these works--each written prior to the end of the sixteenth century--contemporary readers are able to engage the ideas that have shaped Christian theology and the church through the centuries.
