Luther and the Beloved Community

Full Product Description

Is Christian belief tenable today? Is it possible to be a creedal Christian? With the help of Martin Luther, Paul Hinlicky here explores classical Christian beliefs regarding the person and work of Christ and human nature and destiny. He also counters contemporary objections to creedal faith, from the so-called new perspective on Paul to Pope Benedicts rejection of the Augsburg Confession to the continuing challenge of Marx.
Luther and the Beloved Community does not present Luthers medieval thought as a possibility for today, but does make him available for the future as a teacher of the faith and a help for tackling contemporary questions of Christian belief. According to Hinlicky, Luther is misused and misunderstood by those of his own tradition and needs to be understood not as hero of the faith but rather as the proponent of a beloved community that does not yet fully exist. In performing this makeover, Hinlicky reveals genuine new insights concealed within Luthers rhetoric.

Luther and the Beloved Community by Paul R. Hinlicky was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in August 2010. The ISBN for Luther and the Beloved Community is 9780802864925.
