Product Description

Martin Luther read and preached the biblical text as the record of God addressing real, flesh-and-blood people in their daily lives. He used stories of the faithful as depicted in biblical narratives to drive home his vision of the Christian life, a life that includes struggling against temptation, enduring suffering, praising God in worship and prayer, and serving one's neighbor in response to God's callings and commands.

Against the backdrop of these stories--which reveal God's action to reclaim and restore his fallen human creatures--Luther cultivated a life of repentance based on faith in God as he has revealed himself in Christ.

In Luther and the Stories of God: Biblical Narratives as a Foundation for Christian Living Luther scholar Robert Kolb explores, With both depth and clarity, how Luther used the narrative of Scripture as the foundation to his highly developed process of spiritual formation. Professors and students in theology and Reformation courses, pastors, and readers interested in narrative theology and nurturing a faithful Christian life will value this work. Luther, like us, lived in a rapidly changing and at times uncertain world, and he used the Bible's stories to create trust and build disciples.

Publisher's Description

Martin Luther read and preached the biblical text as the record of God addressing real, flesh-and-blood people and their daily lives. He used stories to drive home his vision of the Christian life, a life that includes struggling against temptation, enduring suffering, praising God in worship and prayer, and serving one's neighbor in response to God's callings and commands. Leading Lutheran scholar Robert Kolb highlights Luther's use of storytelling in his preaching and teaching to show how Scripture undergirded Luther's approach to spiritual formation. With both depth and clarity, Kolb explores how Luther retold and expanded on biblical narratives in order to cultivate the daily life of faith in Christ.
