During the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century, the Reformers most effective tool was the pulpit, and all of the Reformers were gifted preachers. This was especially true of Martin Luther, the man regarded as the father of the Reformation.
Luther used every legitimate means to make known the truths of Scripture. His strategies included writing books, tracts, pamphlets, and letters, as well as classroom lectures, public debates, and heated disputations in churches and universities. But his chief means of producing reform was the pulpit, where he proclaimed the truths of Gods Word with great courage. In a day when the church greatly needed to hear the truth, Luthers pulpit became one of the most clarion sounding boards for Gods Word this world has ever witnessed.
In The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther, Dr. Steven J. Lawson shows the convictions and practices that fed Luthers pulpit boldness, providing an example for all preachers in a day when truth once more is in decline.
Dr. Steven J. Lawson is founder and president of OnePassion Ministries. He is a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow, director of the doctor of ministry program at The Masters Seminary, and host of the Institute for Expository Preaching. He has written numerous books, including The Passionate Preaching of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, The Evangelistic Zeal of George Whitefield, John Knox: Fearless Faith, and The Moment of Truth. He is on Twitter at @DrStevenJLawson.
"In The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther, I found a Luther of whom little is told: a Luther who loved an inerrant Scripture, a Luther who preached a glorious gospel, a Luther who was passionate for Gods glory and Gods people, a Luther who was willing to suffer for the cause. I am convinced that Steve Lawson has come closer to capturing the heart of Luthers passions and desires as a gospel minister than anyone else. Here I found encouragement for my heart as I carry out my weekly ministry: read this and find encouragement for yours."
"With the quincentenary of the Reformation just around the corner, the publication of Steven Lawsons The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther could not be more timely. Indeed, with the modern church very much in need of the very kind of preaching Dr. Lawson portrays here, this books message is perhaps more vital than at almost any time since the days of Luther. Highly recommended."
"Here is a profile of Luther the preacher in all his red-blooded roughness and desperate, dogged faithfulness. Steven Lawson has captured the spirit of this volcanic Reformer superbly, and the result is deeply stirring. This is a most welcome book for today, when the church is in such desperate need of reformation. May it help to rouse a generation of Luthers."
