Synopsis: Published in Finland in 1983, Two Kinds of Love is the second of Tuomo Mannermaa's provocative books offering a distinctly different interpretation of Martin Luther's theology. The other, Christ Present in Faith, was published by Fortress Press in 2005.

In Two Kinds of Love, Mannermaa unfolds Luther's understanding of love as the key to the reformer's theology of grace. Human love orients toward that "which is lovable to it" - toward that which is already "good and beautiful" - and, as such, comes into being only through "the prestige and glory of the loved one."In contrast, God's love, which "does not find but creates the lovable in its object," is a pure gift of grace, which makes possible our love for God and for one another.

Mannermaa spearheaded the Finnish Luther Research project for more than twenty years, and more than any other is responsible for the unique perspective on Luther contributed to Luther scholarship by the Finnish School. Two Kinds of Love concludes with an afterword, reviewing Finnish Luther Research since 1977.

About the Author: Tuomo Mannermaa is Emeritus Professor of Ecumenical Theology at the University of Helsinki, Finland. He is the author of Christ Present in Faith, Fortress Press 2005.
Kirsi I. Stjerna is Associate Professor of Reformation Church History and Director of the Institute for Lutheran Studies at the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. She is the editor of Christ Present in Faith and the author of No Greater Jewel: Thinking about Baptism with Luther (2009).
