Reviews - What do customers think about A Theology to Live by: The Practical Luther for the Practicing Christian?

A Solid Look at Living a Confessional Life  Sep 22, 2007
I'm no speed reader, but I found this book hard to put down once I got to chapter 7. The first 6 chapters are essential to setting up the rest of the book, making the case for Luther's focus that everything stems from your belief on how you are Justified , but as a lifelong LCMS Lutheran attending a conservative congregation, much of it was review.
On that basis, Luther' 100% sinner/100% saint theology shines through to explain how Lutherans need to live their lives in this modern world, which poses so many challenges with it's "no absolute truth" philosophy.
I heartily encourage anyone who is curious about Martin Luther to read this book so they can understand his theology.
Very Encouraging  Nov 2, 2006
A delightful presentation of Luther's pastoral propensity to unite theology and daily living. Preus has done the Church a fine service in demonstrating how the Gospel of Jesus (as Luther understood it) gives Christians a world and life view firmly founded on the grace of God. Living by "faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me," seems to have been the meaning of Christianity for Luther and Preus brings this out clearly. Good read for everyone, not just Lutherans.
Theology is For Life  Jun 22, 2006
Fortunately this book has been reprinted now by CPH, and is very inexpensive. It is an excellent demonstration of how the theology of Martin Luther and the Reformation was not just an academic exercise in abstract concepts disconnected from life. Preus repeatedly shows how the various teachings of the Lutheran reformation had real bearing on the spiritual life of the Christian. It is a good general introduction to Lutheranism and covers the bases pretty well. It doesn't have quite as many examples in it as "The Fire and the Staff" by Klemet Preus, which is also to be highly recommended. I wasn't overimpressed by the writing style of Herman Preus in this book, but the content is excellent. He consistently shows how our spiritual life as Christians is guided and shaped by our theology, and that false theologies can steal our comfort and sicken our faith. Throughout the book it is made evident that Luther's theology was profoundly Christ-centered, and that salvation by grace alone through faith alone has profound effects in transforming the life of a Christian. A good book to read and re-read.
Tremendous, Readable, Practical Look At Luther's Theology  Jul 27, 2003
If I could give this six stars, I would. It's a tremendous look at Martin Luther's theology, done systematically. It's all here -- the creation, the Fall, sin, the theology of the cross, the sacraments, his arguments with Erasmus, and much more. Words can't do justice to how helpful this book is. Tons of footnotes, too. Very readable. Unfortunately, it's out of print. It took me six months to find it on the Internet. But it's well worth the find. I hope Concordia will consider republishing it.

This book was key to my becoming a Lutheran. And with a new generation of confessional Lutherans emerging, such as Gene Veith, Craig Parton, Rod Rosenbladt and many others, this book will provide them with a very solid look at Martin Luther's theology.
