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.
