Product Description

In Luther: Out of the Storm Derek Wilson provides a pentrating and scholarly look at one of the seminal and without question pivotal figures in Western culture, thought, and religion. Intensely controversial in his own day, Luther's thought remain so today. His thought today remains the center piece in political, cultural, and theological debates.

Specifically, in the areas of Pauline scholarship, and the influence of Christianity on politics, Luther remains a polarizing figure. As Wilson states in the introduction, "[Luther is] a massive mountain dominating the historical landscape so that it is impossible to ignore him and equally impossible to deny his significance."Yet, the significant contributions Luther made cannot be understood apart from an intimate connection to the life that brought them forth.

Luther, a painfully emotional figure whose intellectual life was shaped by his own hristian experience and supremely detailed exegetical work must understood in tandem, and in this biography Derek Wilson accomplishes the unification of Luther's intellectual and personal life. It is powerful and engaging, scholarly, yet accessible. Luther: Out of the Storm is a must read for all who wish to understand Luther person and Luther the towering influential intellect. This is now the book on Luther's life and will be an excellent for course on historical theology, or on Luther himself.

    Luther: Out of the Storm shows in detail how one man created a crusade to rectify and revive a dying church and bring it back to the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Luther was, indeed, in many ways, an intellectual genius! Moreover, Derek Wilson's story shows that Martin Luther was really all about Jesus Christ!
