Spiritual Anguish Led Luther to reject Roman/Calvinist Predestination,, September 14, 2010

This review is from: Luther Discovers the Gospel (Kindle Edition)
"The doctrine of Predestination was a further cause of much affliction and anguish of soul to Luther. The Nominalist teachers at Erfurt, following Gabriel Biel, taught that the salvation or perdition of man depends entirely upon the divine decree of predestination, which no man can change. On the other hand, however, they declared that the basis of election is the merit of man forseen from eternity (propter meritum praevisum). By meriting the divine grace man merits his own election. This peculiar contradiction in the Nominalistic doctrine of election created in Luther an uncertainty which caused him to waver between hope and despair. Regardless of how he sought to merit grace and election, he could never attain certainty, since the final determining factor was the arbitrary decree of God." (Uuraas Saarnivaara, "Luther Discovers the Gospel" (St. Louis, Concordia Publishing House, 1951) Pg. 30
Recently my college mentor, Dr. Rod Rosenbladt, had a book by Uuraas Saarnivaara "Scriptural Baptism" republished with a forward written by him. You can order that here. It is a great book on Baptism, and shows a Lutheran how to debate with a Baptist and figuratively at least give the guy a swirly.
However, I didn't buy my mentor's book with the forward, because I already inherited in prodigal fashion an earlier edition of this book in the "Concordia Heritage Series" which should be reprinted, talk about an essential Lutheran Library! The added benefit of this edition was a second book by Uuraas. This second book is "Luther Discovers the Gospel" and what a wonderful book it is.
