Reformed Perspectives on Luther: The Man and His Message
The 500th anniversary of the Martin Luther’s nailing of the Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg affords an opportunity to reflect upon the life, ministry and teaching of the Reformer. We should listen to Martin Luther – not to become experts in reformation history, nor to boast about our spiritual and historical descent from him, but to be mastered and captivated by his God.
‘I simply taught, preached and wrote God’s Word; I did nothing; the Word did everything.’
This book brings together perspectives from faculty members of the Reformed Theological College of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland.
‘Martin Luther’s significance reaches well beyond the bounds of the church. But for Christians his primary significance is surely that of his theology, his grasp of the gospel, and thus his understanding of the church…It is my pleasure to commend such a fine pastoral collection of essays on Luther.’ CARL TRUEMAN
