As profound as Martin Luther's ideas are, this giant of Christian thought was concerned above all with practical instruction. This new volume mines Luther's reflections in key areas of theology, ethics, and church practice. Presenting the latest work by well-known Luther scholars from Europe and the Americas, Harvesting Martin Luther's Reflections is both accessible and engaging. Its chapters range broadly over theological questions about baptism and righteousness, ethical issues like poverty and greed, and pastoral concerns like worship and spirituality. As a result, the book is both a state-of-the-art discussion of Lutheran themes and an excellent introduction for newcomers to Luther's work.
Timothy J. Wengert is Ministerium of Pennsylvania Professor of Church History at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. He is also coeditor of the 2000 English edition of The Book of Concord.
