Product Description

Martin Luther (1483Ė1546) was a German monk, priest, professor, theologian, and church reformer whose teachings inspired the Reformation and deeply influenced not only the doctrines and culture of the Lutheran and Protestant traditions but also the course of Western civilization.

Luther emphasized salvation based on faith in the merits of Jesus Christ alone. He dealt the symbolic blow that began the Reformation when he nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Church. That document contained an attack on papal abuses and the sale of indulgences by Catholic Church officials.

In this unique volume, the reader will find Lutherís most significant sermons for the Sunday after Christmas, New Yearís Day, and Epiphany, following the church yearís most significant lectionary readings associated with the major feasts and fasts. Luther wrote thousands of pages of exposition during his life, but this book makes available in a single volume a core collection of his writing for this liturgical season, featuring Scripture readings that include the most familiar events from the life of Jesus. Other volumes in this series include Lutherís Sermons for Advent and Christmas Day, and his Sermons for Lent and Easter through Trinity Sunday (including Christís Ascension and Pentecost). These writings represent the heart of Lutherís thoughts on the Christian faith and his ideas for practical faith in that life.
