Description

"This book presents an analysis of Martin Luther's approach to the Bible, focusing on four key areas, Inspiration of Scripture, the Unity of Scripture, the Clarity of Scripture and the Sufficiency of Scripture. Using these categories to organise his subject matter, Mark Thompson presents a wealth of material and shows great mastery of the primary sources. In this respect, together with its helpful indices and extensive bibliography, his book will be an invaluable resource for the student of Luther's hermeneutics for many years to come. On the basis of this material, Thompson proceeds to a theological examination of Luther's thought on this subject matter, in the context of Luther's own theology and of his time, the sixteenth century. Thus Thompson wants to present Luther on his (i.e. Luther's) own terms and in his own context; in short, he wants to "let Luther be Luther"."
