Product Description

Written by one of the world's foremost protestant theologians and historians, Luther's Theology of the Cross: Martin Luther's Theological Breakthrough explores the development of the late medieval intellectual, cultural, and religious world of the Reformation and its impact on Luther's early development, and on his seminal doctrine of justification. Many recent contributions to studies in this era have not, until the present volume, been incorporated into the panorama that constitutes our knowledge of Luther and his world. Luther's 'theological breakthrough' continues to be of central importance to Reformation Studies and the development of Protestantism in general. Here, McGrath's expert guidance leads us through the maze of Luther's intellectual life showing just how Luther formulated his doctrine.
