CH 509 The Theology of Martin Luther
“On this I take my stand. I can do no other. God help me.” Those words of Martin Luther reflect the unswerving commitment to Scripture that permeated his theology and sparked his Reformation. In this course, learners survey the background and setting of Luther’s thought, as well as his teaching on a range of topics that form Christian theology: his understanding of sin and grace, justification and faith, and law and gospel. The course also emphasizes his view of the workplace as an arena to serve God. The goal of the course is to appreciate Luther’s steadfast commitment to the cross of Christ and the authority of Scripture, and to apply such commitment to their own lives and ministry.
