This book traces Luther's theological development from medieval Augustinianism to evangelical theology. It provides a theological study of how Luther became a ''Lutheran''. As readers explore Luther's spiritual and theological journey, they gain a context for the teaching of Lutheran doctrine and the development of those documents that would become the Lutheran Confessions. The author specifically shows the teachings that make Luther's theology evangelical, that is, uniquely poised to deliver the Gospel. In addition, Saarnivaara also explores other theologies touted as evangelical, yet when held to the Law-Gospel distinction, they are revealed to be flawed.
