The Bondage of the Will: by Martin Luther
Author: Martin Luther
|First published in 1525, Martin Lutherís Bondage of the Will is acknowledged by theologians as one of the great masterpieces of the Reformation. It is Luther response to Desiderius Erasmusí Diatribe on Free Will, written in his direct and unique style, combining deep spirituality with humor. Luther writes powerfully about manís depravity and Godís sovereignty. The crucial issue for Luther concerned what ability free will has, and to what degree it is subject to Godís sovereignty. For Luther, this key issue of free will is directly connected to Godís plan of salvation. Is man able to save himself, or is his salvation entirely a work of divine grace? This work is vital to understanding the primary doctrines of the Reformation and will long remain among the great theological classics of Christian history. |
