The best one-volume reader of Luther's writings -- now revised
Martin Luther's Basic Theological Writings has become the gold standard for use in seminary and college environments. It not only offers Luther's most influential and important writings, but also includes excerpts of his sermons and letters shedding light on Luther's own religious and theological development. This volume takes readers straight to Luther the man, to his controversial Reformation insights, to his strongest convictions about God, Scripture, and the life of the church, and most valuably to his theology—a still-exciting encounter with the meaning of Jesus Christ for each age.
This new edition includes an index, revised introductions, updated bibliography, and the addition of "Sermon of the Blessed Sacrament" (1518), "Sermon at Castle Pleissenburg" (1539), and "Comfort to Women Who Have Had a Miscarriage" (1542), and new translations of "A Simple Way to Pray" (1535) and "On the Freedom of a Christian" (1520).
