Overview
This book about Luther's theology is written out of a two-fold conviction- first, that many of our problems have arisen because we have not really understood our own traditions, especially in the case of Luther; and second, that there is still a lot of help for us in someone like Luther if we take the trouble to probe beneath the surface. It is an attempt to interpret Luther's theology for our own day.

Publishers Description
This book about Luther's theology is written out of a two-fold conviction. First, that many of our problems have arisen because we have not really understood our own traditions, especially in the case of Luther; and second, that there is still a lot of help for us in someone like Luther if we take the trouble to probe beneath the surface. It is an attempt to interpret Luther's theology for our own day. The fundamental theme of the book is the "down-to-earth" character of Luther's theology. In using this theme, Forde points out that we have failed to understand the basic thrust or direction of Luther's theology and that this failure has caused and is still causing us grief. Modern scholarship has demonstrated that Luther simply did not share the views on the nature of faith and salvation that subsequent generations have foisted upon him and used to interpret his thinking. This book attempts to bring the results of some of that scholarship to light and make it more accessible to those who are searching for answers today. The central questions of Christianity are examined in this fresh restatement of Luther's thought the God-man relationship, the cross, the sacraments, this world and the next, and the role of the church. The author presents the "down-to-earth" character of Luther's theology in the hope that it will help individual Christians today to be both faithful to God and true to their human and social responsibilities.

Good News: A Radical Book - A Radical Gospel  Mar 22, 2001
Gerhard Forde's book is the clearest articulation of Martin Luther's theololgy that I have read. Shortly after Luther's death - and perhaps even during Luther's later life - the Reformation movement began to drift into Orthodoxy and lose some of the scandalous edge that is inherent to the very nature of a Gospel that turned - and still turns - the world "upside down".

With great clarity and accessability, Forde recaptures Luther's Reformation theology. He systematically leads the reader through Luther's understanding of: the human condition, the nature of God, salvation by grace through faith, the Sacraments, this world and the world to come, and the calling (vocation)of Christians in this world. Forde also illustrates the many ways that the Church - even the Lutheran tradition - has misunderstood, watered down, or tried to "tame" Luther's views.

The book is useful for personal reading, discussion groups, and Christian education classes. As a Lutheran pastor, I have used it a number of times with adult groups. Class members found the book to be very readable and helpful in shaping their own theology and faith.

The only criticism is that the book was written prior to a concern for inclusive language, and so the pronouns - even in the title - need to be glossed over.
