Product Description


"Reformation theology, like most if not all theology prior to the birth of the university, was done in the church, by the church, for the church. As such, it could never be separated from the pastoral context in which most of its great proponents labored. This is above all true of the great Martin Luther, and Dr Ngien is to be thanked for an exciting and stimulating monograph on just this topic. It is my hope that this timely book will help to recover the pastoral theological importance of Luther for a new generation." -- Carl R. Trueman, Professor of Historical Theology and Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia "Dennis Ngien is the author of a fine book on Luther's understanding of the suffering of God. In this volume he extends his study of Luther's theologia crucis into Luther's pastoral and devotional writings . . . He shows us Luther up close and personal, Luther at the bedside of the sick, Luther kneeling to pray, Luther laughing at a wedding, Luther consoling the bereaved, Luther singing lustily in worship, Luther joyous at the table of communion." - Timothy George, from the Foreword

An excellent book March 30 2012
By David P. Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Professor Ngien has written a wonderful summary of important themes in Luther's theology, especially with an eye towards spiritual and pastoral care. Theology of the cross, the hidden and revealed God, Christ, Trinity, Sacraments, Word of God, etc. are some of the topics of this slim, yet well written theological text. There is not a wasted word, and well done documentation. I encourage anyone who is interested in Luther's theology or in hard core Reformation thought to take a look at this volume.
