Luther's Spirituality by Philip D. W. Krey

Book Description

This volume in the "Classics of Western Spirituality" offers a unique selection of texts, some newly translated, by Martin Luther. These texts represent the varieties of ways Luther understood how one believed and behaved as a Christian. This comprehensive collection includes both his critique of late medieval spiritualities that he inherited and his various constructive proposals. The book is designed for the reader to discover the rich complex of issues that Luther contributes to the discussion of spirituality. The collection is divided into three sections of fresh and modified translations: Luther's Spirituality in a Late-Medieval Context, Teaching the New Spirituality, and The New Path to Prayer which also includes various songs. The volume includes Luther's spiritual classics like the German edition of the "Freedom of a Christian", the "Magnificat", "The Sermon at Coburg on Cross" and "Suffering", letters of consolation, biblical prefaces and commentaries like "Psalm 117 and 118", a "Simple Way to Pray", and selections from the "Large Catechism". There is nothing like it on the market. Philip D. W. Krey is the President and Ministerium of New York Professor of Early and Medieval Church History at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia. He received his PhD in medieval church history and theology at the University of Chicago.
