Providing the Other Side of Luther on Missions  Mar 10, 2009
Luther is "all" about pure doctrine, but no heart for saving the lost. That has been the popular opinion about Luther, even the scholars and academics who have made investigation of the Reformer's writings. Especially the noted Lutheran historian of missiology, Gustav Warneck, wrote negatively about Luther and his views on mission.

Oberg makes the same search of the Reformer's writings and provides a well done opinion that counters that of Warneck and others. Although Luther did not live in a time or region of the world where overseas, cross-cultural mission was in vogue or possible due to circumstances, he nonetheless, Oberg shows, had a passion for worldwide missions. The theology of Luther in this regard is parsed for us by Luther's writings in many commentaries, sermons, and other miscellaneous writings, to show that Luther truly believed that the universal preaching of the Gospel was not completed by the apostles and thus the current church has no such mission to continue to the end of time, as Warneck hypothesized.

Oberg concludes that Luther does not believe in a special mission office or technique or plan, but the church ought to be about taking the means of grace to both believer and non-believer alike: "Indeed, wherever non-Christianity has the advantage, there is a mission field. ... Because the non-Christian world and secualarization are univeral, the Gospel and mission must be the universal thrust as long as the world exists."

Luther geographically was hemmed in from all sides, Roman Catholic around him from west, east and south. Threat of Islam to central Europe drew near. Not much opportunity for mission as we think of it today. But Luther saw opportunity and need for Gospel spread in Germany, and throughout the world as God commanded in centrifuge manner, with the church and its establishment at the center, beginning in Jerusalem and then spreading out to the ends of the earth. In sharp contrast with much of today's mission thinking, Luther believed in spreading of church by creating churches to preach the Word from is God's plan.

He develops this from his consistent theological base of creation theology, power of the Gospel, the doctrine of justification by faith and God's kingdom spreading its reign through His church.

This is subsequently expanded into three sections: Doctrines and Theological Premises Important for Luther's Mission Theology; Mission Perspective in Luther's Writings; Luther and Mission Praxis.

This last section shows Luther's interest and contributions in apologetics and missions to the Jews and Islam (Turks as Luther's time referred to them). Oberg seeks to clear up some misunderstanding of previous studies of Luther and the Jews especially.

This book is somewhat tedious, as many of the pages consist of up to 50% or more of quotes from Luther, many in German or Latin or some other than English. For the one interested and capable in these, this is good as one can follow along Oberg's research from the Weimar edition.

Must read for those interested in Luther on Missions perspective.
