Luther's Theology of the Cross Reviews


"McGrath has made a major contribution to this problem of Luther studies by his learned, lucid and informative book." Journal of Theological Studies. "It is refreshing to turn to Alister McGratha s study, Luthera s Theology of the Cross, and to see how a work which is uncompromisingly theological in its focus can be rigorously historical throughout ... a work of impressive scholarship distinguished at the same time by a clarity of expression all too rare in books of this kind ... McGratha s magisterial study ... brings the most traditional of themes into fresh historical focus." Journal of Ecclesiastical History. "A study of the first rank." Choice. "Is a major study of Luthera s theology, and ought to be consulted by everyone teaching the Reformation, and by Luther scholars in particular. An impressive achievement at the level of theological sophistication that has established McGrath as one of the pre--eminent Luther scolars. Its arguments are very tight and it displays a complete mastery of Luther scholarship." Journal of Religious History.
