Item description for Baptism in the Theology of Martin Luther (Studies in the History of Christian Thought) by Jonathan D. Trigg...

"Baptism in the Theology of Martin Luther" satisfies the need for a comprehensive survey, in English, of Martin Luther on baptism. The mature Luther was unstinting in praise of baptism. How does his vigorously expressed sacramental understanding sit with his earlier reformation insights? What is its impact upon justification, faith, conversion, the Church? The tensions and paradoxes are examined. Analysis of formal doctrine is complemented by a picture of baptism 'in action', culled mainly from the "Lectures on Genesis," Central is baptism's 'present tense' - its abiding force in the Christian's life, ever available for an encounter with God. His insistence that Christian progress is not onwards "from" baptism, but a repeated return "to" it emerges from the heart of Luther's thought. It is one of his most distinctive and important bequests to the Church. This publication has also been published in paperback, please click here for details.

Reviews - What do customers think about Baptism in the Theology of Martin Luther (Studies in the History of Christian Thought)?

Powerful book on the theology of baptism...  Mar 12, 2003
This is no boring, run-of-the-mill theology book, it is an eye-opening look at what makes Christianity such a beautiful religion. A religion of peace and comfort that has affected millions of lives over the centuries. Luther's life was so amazingly simple and yet his thoughts so complex! His theology was for the layman and not for the theologian. Easy-to-understand with practical applications, this book is a must-read for anyone who loves the Christian faith.
Semper es in motu et initio  Mar 12, 2002
(Review based on Paperback edition, 2001, Brill Academic Publishers, Boston, Leiden)
With baptism and our faith we are always in motion and at the beginning! Ph. 3:13; Rev. 22:11; 1 Cor. 10:12; Ecclus. 18:7; 1 Cor. 8:2.

Briggs, an Anglican priest, mines Luther across his years as he comes to grips with the gospel and its rich, multi-faceted interconnected majesty. He senses well the potential minefields if one tries and corner or simplify Luther (or Scripture for that matter).

Especially does this book reveal the "present tense" of baptism as Luther came to see it, and the unyielding hold Luther had on God's chosen locatedness in the means of grace, never allowing the Word and water to be separated. Nor would he allow the church's boundaries to be firmly etched based on baptism nor to make visible the inner circle of those who return again and again to their "trysting point" in baptism, as this Englishman likes to speak of it.

This work is rich and thorough. One to read and re-read. Before I comment more on this wonderful discovery of a read, I shall do the same.

One will come away from this with a greater appreciation of the depth and conscience boundness of the Great Reformer to Scripture. Well worth the price and investment of time.
