Item description for The Wit of Martin Luther (Facets Series) by Eric W. Gritsch...

Tying Martin Luther's wit and humor to his sharp polemical exploitation of the absurd or incongruous in service to his Reform, Gritsch shows that Luther especially relished humor in his interpretation of the Bible, in his pastoral relationships, and in his encounters with death.

Publishers Description
Eric Gritsch ties Luther's wit and humor to his sharp polemical exploitation of the absurd or incongruous in service to his Reform. At a deeper level Luther's wit and witticisms reflected his keen appreciation of human frailty and the unknowability of things divine. Luther, Gritsch shows, especially relished humor in his interpretation of the Bible, in his pastoral relationships, and in his encounters with death. Ultimately humor in face of mortality is a gauge of human freedom, a "lightening up" that makes of life a divine comedy.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wit of Martin Luther (Facets Series)?

Funny at points, but complicated  Jan 11, 2009
This book tells of the humorous side of Martin Luther. There are points in this book that make me chuckle, but the way it is written is a bit complicated, definitely not in simple English. Overall, the reader can get what the writer is saying, but it is not an easy read.
Marty Rocks  Sep 22, 2007
I was amazed to find that this incredible theologian was also a great wit. Eric Gritsch has woven a rye story of the human and funny side of Martin Luther.
