Martin Luther was not only a theologian but a pastor engaged in the care of souls. Through the use of selected letters, Martin Luther: Preacher of the Cross presents compellings evidence for the reformer's application of his evangelical theology. Luther believed that above all else, the pastor offers spiritual counsel, and this is nothing less than speaking for the stuff of faith: the centrality of Christ alone, the theology of the cross, the externality of the Gospel and Sacraments, use of Law and Gospel, the consolation of the resurrection, and the Christian congregation as the context for pastoral care. This insightful book advances the scriptural and confessional role of the pastor as the caretaker of souls.
