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.
Timothy J. Wengert is the Ministerium of Pennsylvania Professor of Church History at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. His previous works include Human Freedom, Christian Righteousness for which he received the Melanchthon Prize from the city of Bretten, Germany.
This collection of essays examines the practical side of Martin Luthers career. The authors explore Luthers thoughts as preacher, teacher, pastor, and communicator for the Reformations insights into piety and politics. They include his views on music, the arts, pastoral care, the role of women, and the life of the Christian in the world.
