Luther: The Rest of the Story:

 
Luther's Sixteenth Century Theology for the Twenty-First Century Church  Nov 24, 2008
The great Tübingen Luther-scholar, Dr. Oswald Bayer, published a book in 2003 (in German, published by Mohr/Siebeck) giving a contemporary interpretation of Luther's sixteenth century theology. I had been using the German edition extensively in my dissertation when I recently came across the 2008 English version. This book is a must read for all Lutheran ministers and theologians. Dr. Thomas H. Trapp (Professor of Theology at Concordia University, St. Paul) did an excellent job translating the book into quite readable English. Bayer presents Luther's systematic theology in a classical sense while accounting for the unique situation of the twenty-first century church. One scholar summarized the work as a "conversation with Luther" whereby we read his theology on matters we share in common in the contemporary church with the church of the Reformation. I highly recommend this book to you; it will enhance your ministry and understanding of the Wittenberg reformer's teachings.
