This brief introduction to Luther's theology connects Luther with
the evangelical tradition. Paul Hinlicky, one of today's leading Lutheran
theologians, explores six key areas of doctrine for which Luther is regarded as
an authority, correcting common misconceptions of his thought in light of the
whole of his theology. This work regrounds evangelical mission in a new
evangelism and catechesis on the basis of Luther's doctrine of the atonement as
"joyful exchange." In addition to its classroom utility, it will be of interest
to evangelical pastors and church leaders.
