Publisher's Description

David Monge believes that many modern Christians no longer think carefully about scripture and tradition, because they don't believe it is essential to their faith -- and, he says, that's strikingly similar to the prevailing situation which confronted Martin Luther 500 years ago. An excellent introduction for laypersons, Life-Changing Faith For Today examines Luther's thought to discover how relevant it remains to Christians today -- and why it is important to all people of faith, whatever their denominational background. Very simply said, the core of his message is that we do not choose God, but He chooses us. Despite our unworthiness, salvation is ours because God loves us beyond all human comprehension. And that's why we need to rediscover Martin Luther -- since his theology is solidly rooted in both the Bible and human reality, it points us back to a radically authentic Christian faith.Monge is correct: teaching justification by faith is concentrating on a rather simple reality that gets blurred and muddied not because we who hear it are stupid but because we like to hang on to our own efforts and achievements, and these compromise the direct address of a justifying God to our situation. That is why he wrote this book... to reach out to those who welcome growth, who have curiosity, who wish to grow in faith, and want to use Luther's life and teaching as a prism through which to view the Christian reality.
