Product Description

The Reformation revolutionized church life through its new appreciation for God's presence working through the Bible. Coinciding with the five hundredth anniversary of the genesis of the Reformation, Martin Luther and the Enduring Word of God explains how Luther's revolutionary approach to the Bible drew his colleagues and contemporary followers into a Scripture-centered practice of theology and pastoral leadership. With cutting-edge research that offers fresh insights, world-class scholar Dr. Robert Kolb examines the Reformer's work as professor, preacher, and translator; explains how the Wittenberg circle grew around him; and shows how students then continued his work in subsequent generations.

    A Unique Work in the Study of Luther

    The Year 2017 has brought along a lot negative and some positive elements so far, yet a high point in 2017 is that this year is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On October 31st 1517 Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of Wittenberg Abby, the spark which began a reformation, a reformation which is still going on today. In the new book Martin Luther and the Enduring Word of God: The Wittenberg School and Its Scripture-Centered Proclamation authored by Robert Klob, he digs deep into the life and the roles of Luther and the entire Wittenberg School and their view of how the Gospel is proclaimed.

    In Klobs Work he takes a new approach to the study of Luther by expanding it to the academy. While Kolb does not completely ignore a detailed biographical approach on the life of Luther but instead he expands it to those who Luther directly affected, which is a welcomed relief to a saturated market on biographies on Martin Luther. With this in mind, Klob beings with the early life of Luther and his theological background to give the reader the presuppositions in Luthers worldview that he viewed scripture though.

    After delving into his past Klob concentrates on three different roles which Luther held in his life in so much as they affected the proclamation of the Gospel, which are his roles as professor, preacher, and translator. An overlooked role which was not mentioned in the work was that of husband, but since that role did not directly affect the academy it makes sense that Klob glosses over it. In each of these roles Luther held the Word of God above all else. He not only taught Sola Scriptura, he embodied it, in his life, teaching and translating.

    Klob further skillfully expounds upon this thesis by demonstrating how Luthers view of Sola Scriptura not only impacted his life but the lives of all the people whom he was an influencer of. Which were not only people whom Luther taught with, taught to, or preached at, but also anyone who hears of his life, reads his works, or who believes in the foundational doctrine of Sola Sciptura.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Baker Academic Publishing in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
