Product Description

In his sermons on texts from John's Gospel the Reformer deals lucidly with what the evangelist says about Christ, the Savior of fallen mankind. Luther lays special stress on what the evangelist states about the Messiah as the one and only Way to salvation and about good works as the inevitable fruits of that faith. The Reformer's discourses are plain, clearcut, and logical. He calls John a master in the doctrine of justification. The forty-five sermons contained in this volume of the AMERICAN EDITION of LUTHER'S WORKS were delivered in Wittenberg while the pastor, Johannes Bugenhagen, was in Lubeck to do what he could to eliminate trouble and dissension. Luther's discourses are couched in simpled language. Their forcefulness springs to a large extent from the straightforward and homespun quality of the Reformer's way of speaking. These sermons, translated by Martin H. Bertram, are not constructed in accordance with hard and fast rules; they are discussions that come straight from the shoulder. Furthermore, they are as relevant today as they were when the Reformer delivered them from the pulpit in Wittenberg.
