Luther in Context

product image
Luther in Context places Martin Luther within his theological world -- a world in which he dialogued with other key thinkers including Plato, Augustine, Calvin, and Okham. This collection of essays casts light on Luther's thought by placing it within the context of his theological predecessors and contemporaries.

David Steinmetz explores some of the issues that were of considerable importance to Luther, including temptation, the hiddenness of God, and justification by faith alone. This expanded edition contains three additional essays, one of which is appearing in English for the first time. Students of the Reformation will find Luther in Context to be an insightful glimpse into the thought and theology of Martin Luther.
