Valuable as extracts of Luither that go beyond the famous early pamphlets to his more serious theological writings ( )
  antiquary | Mar 24, 2012 |
A standard reader in the works of Martin Luther, Dillenberger is a useful, well-rounded introduction to the reformer's thought. One of the standard textbooks at many universities and colleges, this work is recommended for anyone who wants to quickly get up to speed on the thoughts and theology of the father of protestantism.

A great introduction to Martin Luther and his major writings. i have read and reread "The Freedom of a Christian" and "The Bondage of Will." Indispensible for understanding historic Christianity and for making sense of the sovereignty/free will debate. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385098766, Paperback)

The development of Martin Luther's thought was both a symptom and moving force in the transformation of the Middle Ages into the modern world. Geographical discovery, an emerging scientific tradition, and a climate of social change had splintered the unity of medieval Christian culture, and these changes provided the background for Luther's theological challenge. His new apprehension of Scripture and fresh understanding of man's relation to God demanded a break with the Church as then constituted and released the powerful impulses that carried the Reformation. Luther's vigorous, colorful language still retains the excitement it had for thousands of his contemporaries. In this volume, Dr. Dillenberger has made a representative selection from Luther's extensive writings, and has also provided the reader with a lucid introduction to his thought.
