    About "Martin Luther Charles M. Jacobs A.T.W. Steinhäuser"

    1. Martin Luther Charles M. Jacobs A.T.W. Steinhäuser

      Martin Luther was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization.Luther s theology challenged the authority of the papacy by holding that the Bible is the only infallible source of religious authority and that all baptized Christians under Jesus are a spiritual priesthood According to Luther, salvation was a free gift of God, received only by true repentance and faith in Jesus as the Messiah, a faith given by God and unmediated by the church.Luther s confrontation with Charles V at the Diet of Worms over freedom of conscience in 1521 and his refusal to submit to the authority of the Emperor resulted in his being declared an outlaw of the state as he had been excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church Because of the perceived unity of the medieval Church with the secular rulers of western Europe, the widespread acceptance of Luther s doctrines and popular vindication of his thinking on individual liberties were both phenomenal and unprecedented.His translation of the Bible into the vernacular, making it accessible to ordinary people, had a tremendous political impact on the church and on German culture It furthered the development of a standard version of the German language, added several principles to the art of translation, and influenced the translation of the English King James Bible His hymns inspired the development of congregational singing within Christianity His marriage to Katharina von Bora set a model for the practice of clerical marriage within Protestantism.Much scholarly debate has concentrated on Luther s writings about the Jews His statements that Jews homes should be destroyed, their synagogues burned, money confiscated and liberty curtailed were revived and used in propaganda by the Nazis in 1933 45 As a result of this and his revolutionary theological views, his legacy remains controversial.

    1. Martin Luther wrote Three Treatises in 1520. The Three Treatises are: To The Christian Nobility of the German Nation, The Babylonian Captivity of the Church, and The Freedom of A Christian. While I suppose you could read them individually, I think they are best read together sequentially. But. After saying that, if you read only one book in your entire life by Martin Luther, make it The Freedom of a Christian.In To The Christian Nobility of the German Nation, Luther breaks down the "three walls" [...]


    2. I enjoyed these key Reformation treatises from Luther and was most impressed with his treatment of the sacraments. While not surprised by his rhetoric (I knew his reputation) there were still some moments of blushing when he was describing the excesses and wickedness of the Roman church and the pope.



    3. Fascinating reading, especially to see the development of his thought and the relationship of his theology to the German nation and the Papacy. A Treatise on Christian Liberty (1520) is a short, but full discussion of grace and law/works.




    4. This made me want to convert from Protestantism, even though I already had. If I hadn't already then I would have wanted to as soon as I finished this book!



    5. This book was a requirement for my Reformation History class.I enjoyed the book. Luther writes with an easy, readable style, understandable to even a casual reader. This contrasts what one might expect from the man most identified with the Reformation. In fact, through a reading of these treatises one comes away with an image of a man who with a bit of humor, isn't afraid to tell it like it is and let you have it if you're in the wrong.I enjoyed the book and learned a lot from it while I was at [...]


    6. Thank God for Luther. In the first two treatises, he kicks all the right teeth in. The last treatise (which includes a kind letter to the pope) proves that he isn't just a jerk and is as good a presentation of the gospel as any. In fact, it shows that Luther wasn't primarily a negative whiner. He had the positive freedoms of Christians in mind while he brawled, and by golly, he knew how to brawl.


    7. In 1520 Martin Luther wrote three treatises that were foundational to what he believed. The treatises were "To The Christian Nobility of the German Nation", "The Babylonian Captivity of the Church", and "The Freedom Of A Christian". All three of them carry a huge amount of historical significance, while at the same time being very readable and at times very stirring.


    8. Martin Luther's Three Treaties was a Seminary assignment that I totally Loved Just when you think you know Dr Martin Luther, you pick up this book and his Treaties on Good Works and find he is not the Luther you heard about The!


    9. Martin Luther was a very freaky dude- really furious, anti-Semitic, anti-papal. This book represents him in all his strangeness and gave me interesting insights into the Protestant Reformation I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. It's also an lucid easy read.




    10. Luther at his best. Start with these 3 to understand his theology. 2 Kingdoms, sola fide, and universal priesthood. Bringing the rock.




    11. Read this ages ago for Lordship, I think. Just re-read "The Freedom of a Christian as part of my research"--what a fantastic little book!




    12. A perfect way to get in Luther's head. The three treatises include An Open Letter to the Christian Nobility, The Babylonian Captivity of the Church, and The Freedom of a Christian.
