"The Cambridge Companion to Martin Luther provides students and general readers an initial foray into Luther's thought, and a foretaste of what is to come should they choose to study Luther seriously." Trinity Seminary Review Dennis Bielfeldt, South Dakota State University
This Companion provides an accessible introduction to Martin Luther for students of theology and history and for others interested in the life, work and thought of the first great Protestant reformer. Historians and theologians join to present a full picture of Luther's contexts, the major themes in his writings, and the ways in which his ideas spread and have continuing importance today. The Companion is oriented to those with little or no background in Luther studies, while teachers and Luther specialists will also find useful material here.
