Product Description

Sixteen church historians here examine Martin Luther in an uncommon way - not as Reformer or theologian but as pastor. Luther's work as parish pastor commanded much of his time and energy in Wittenberg.

After first introducing the pastoral Luther, including his theology of the cross, the chapters discuss Luther's preaching and use of language (including humor), investigatehis teaching ministry in depth, especially in light of the catechism, and explore his views on such things as the role of women, the Virgin Mary, and music. The book finally probes Luther's sentiments on monasticism and secular authority.

Publisher's Description

Explores a long-neglected aspect of Martin Luther--his life and ministry as a pastor.

Sixteen church historians here examine Martin Luther in an uncommon way -- not as Reformer or theologian but as pastor. Luther's work as parish pastor commanded much of his time and energy in Wittenberg.

After first introducing the pastoral Luther, including his theology of the cross, these chapters discuss Luther's preaching and use of language (including humor), investigate his teaching ministry in depth, especially in light of the catechism, and explore his views on such things as the role of women, the Virgin Mary, and music. The book finally probes Luther's sentiments on monasticism and secular authority.

Editorial Reviews

Scott H. Hendrix, Princeton Theological Seminary
"A rich and reliable collection of essays that portray a less familiar but vital dimension of Luther's work."

John T. Pless, Concordia Theological Seminary
"The Reformation had its origin in a crisis of pastoral care, and Luther's reforming work would leave no aspect of ministerial practice, church life, catechesis, or piety untouched. In rich and informative essays drawn from the work of an international array of recognized Luther scholars, the Reformer's evangelical views on preaching and Christian education, sacramental practice and consolation in the face of suffering, art, and piety are presented in light of challenges faced by twenty-first-century pastors. The Pastoral Luther will be an indispensable tool not only for Reformation scholars but also for pastoral theologians who seek to understand and anchor contemporary practices in the ancient yet ever lively confession of God's grace articulated by the Wittenberg pastor. Luther's pastoral theology has been a neglected theme; this volume happily fills the void with first-rate scholarship that will serve both academy and church."
