9780758611130: Martin Luther Preacher of the Cross

Martin Luther was not only a theologian, but a pastor engaged in the care of souls. This new resource provides evidence for Luther s application of his evangelical theology to consciences burdened with sin, haunted by death, and afflicted by the devil.

Through the use of selected letters, Martin Luther: Preacher of the Cross presents compelling evidence for the reformer s application of his evangelical theology. Luther believed that above all else, the pastor offers spiritual counsel, and this is nothing less than speaking the stuff of faith:

the centrality of Christ alone
the theology of the cross
the externality of the Gospel and Sacraments
use of Law and Gospel, the consolation of the resurrection
the Christian congregation as the context for pastoral care
Foreword by Matthew C. Harrison

Review:

"This book is a significant contribution to pastoral theology. Not only do we read much about Luther, but this book also beckons pastors to follow suit. Pastors are entrusted with the task of being caretakers of people s troubled consciences and struggles in life; this book will again bring to the attention the truth and seriousness of pastoral care and ministry. --Dr. Klaus Detlev Schulz, Chairman, Pastoral Ministry and Missions, Supervisor of PhD Missiology Program, Dean of Graduate Studies, Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana

"Here is insight to do a daily ministry of teaching, challenging, and comforting that truly cares for souls. Pastors facing requests to be all things to all people will find in this guide a basis for discerning what is important from what is not. They will find focus and energy to fulfill their God-appointed calling." --Dr. Mark C. Mattes, Professor of Philosophy and Theology, Grand View University, Des Moines, Iowa

"Martin Luther: Preacher of the Cross is a great, useful, and inspirational book that sets a new standard for the pastoral care of the future. It is not to be missed!" --Dr. Steven D. Paulson
