The Freedom of a Christian: Luther Study Edition

The Freedom of a Christian: Luther Study Edition

Perhaps no work of Martin Luther's so captures the revolutionary zeal and theological boldness of his vision as The Freedom of a Christian. Yet, it is not easily accessible today. Mark Tranvik's new translation of Luther's treatise brings alive the social, historical, and ecclesial context of Luther's treatise.

Key Features:
  • An informative Introduction that lays out the context of Luther's writing
  • A modern, student-friendly translation of the text of Luther's Letter to Pope Leo X and The Freedom of a Christian
  • Frequent headings to guide the student's reading and comprehension
  • Student-oriented notes to explain theological controversies and terms
  • A glossary of key theological and ecclesial terms
  • A map of Reformation Europe in the 16th Century
  • Ten black and white illustrations
  • A short "For Further Reading" list

This is the first of a set of student guides to key Reformation treatises by Martin Luther, concentrating on those most widely used in college settings.
