Product Details

An English translation of one of the basic documents of the Reformation. Martin Luther's theology and his key doctrines, the sovereignty of the Divine Grace in man's salvation and the importance of justification through faith are here fully developed.

About the Author
Martin Luther February 18, 1546) was born the son of the miner, November 10, 1483 in Eisleben, Germany. He later became an Augustinian monk, and then an ordained priest.

Luther is most famous for the symbolic blow that began the Reformation when he nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Church on 31 October, 1517. That document contained an attack on papal abuses and the sale of indulgences by church officials.

But Luther himself saw the Reformation as something far more important than a revolt against ecclesiastical abuses. He believed it was a fight for the gospel. Luther even stated that he would have happily yielded every point of dispute to the Pope, if only the Pope had affirmed the gospel.

And at the heart of the gospel, in Luther's estimation, was the doctrine of justification by faith—the teaching that Christ's own righteousness is imputed to those who believe, and on that ground alone, they are accepted by God.

Some of Luther's best known works are: Commentaries on Galatians, Romans, Peter and Jude, The Bondage of the Will, Treatise on Good Works, Larger and Smaller Catechism, Smalcald Articles, and Table Talk.

Endorsements

A trenchant answer to Erasmus. Luther's theme here is vital to an understanding of his teaching and underlines the rediscovery by the Reformers of the true extent of the Fall upon nature. The volume has a lengthy and excellent historical and theological introduction.
The Best Books W J Grier
The Bondage of the Will is Martin Luther’s finest theological writing. Few works more convincingly tell us of man’s depravity and need for God’s sovereign grace.
