Reviews of the First Edition
ìThis attractive collection . . . blends careful, current scholarship with an eminently readable style to create an enlightening guide to Martin Lutherís religious thought.î óJournal of Religion
ìExplores with elegance some of the fundamental loci of Reformation theology in a logical progression and with a refreshing method. . . . The essays illuminate the issues at stake and the range of choices available to and taken by Luther and his partners in the dialogue, often thereby clarifying differences that still exist within Western Christianity.î óSixteenth Century Journal
ìSteinmetz masterfully exhibits the novelty of Lutherís reformation insights against representatives of the theological landscape of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. . . . Exceptionally well-written and lucid.î óLutheran Quarterly
ìDavid Steinmetz has provided an invaluable guide for the study of Luther. . . . It is not only a tribute to Martin Luther and to his enduring contributions these hundreds of years after his birth, but it is a witness as well to how a scholar like Steinmetz can make those contributions readily available and accessible to the broader Christian world and to the interested reader.î óAsbury Theological Journal
ìProfessor Steinmetz . . . is a master at cutting through the complexities of late medieval and early Protestant thought and illuminating key issues in fresh and exciting ways. This book will benefit both students and specialists.î óRestoration Quarterly
ìWhoever seeks to find out more about Luther in the late medieval theological context is well advised to study Steinmetzí essays.î óTheology Today
ìThe lectures are carefully informed, developed with an obvious interest in the listener or reader, and have a depth about them that should draw further interest. Steinmetz represents an American Luther scholarship finally coming into its own.î óInterpretation
