Review:

Unwilling to neutralize the core Lutheran teaching that God is in the business of killing off sinners just so that new beings might rise in faith, Paulson holds the wider Lutheran tradition accountable to Luther's own unique distinction of the law as accusation and the gospel as promise. Here we learn much of the Lutheran tradition-Paulson himself writes in the grand style of theological loci, approaching doctrine as outlined from Paul's argument in Romans. Paulson's approach to faith has an inerasable edge-if theology is to avoid being pointless, it must be for proclamation. Here is a theology beholden to God's word that does what it says and says what it does-finally remaking humanity out of the nothingness of sin and death.
Church Times

Martin Luther did not so much set out to reform the church as he did to reform preaching. Steven Paulson gets to the heart of Lutheranism-not as a denomination nor as a movement-but as the preaching of Christ crucified for the justification of sinners. Tracing the trajectory of Luther's preaching in subsequent centuries, noting how it bumps up against attempts to domesticate its assertiveness or ground its doctrine according to one worldview or another, Paulson is persistent in following Luther's own evangelical logic in making the necessary distinction between law and gospel, God hidden and God revealed to provide contemporary readers with a vigorous introduction to the loci of Lutheran theology. With the epistle to the Romans as his framework, Paulson deftly gives an account of Luther's confession of Jesus Christ and with precision and literary craftsmanship identifies the use (and misuse) of this theology in the church which bears his name.
Word & World: Theology for Christian Ministry

Looking over Martin Luther's shoulder as he studies the Scriptures and into his heart as it hosts the battle between Satan's deception and doubt and the Holy's Spirit's truth and trust, Paulson plunges into the depths of Luther's way of thinking. He penetrates the Wittenberg reformer's intricate yet simple address of the realities of human experience with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Throughout he engages other representatives of Lutheran culture and tradition, critically and perceptively, as they repeated or departed from Luther's insights. This volume aids twenty-first century readers in reaping a rich harvest from his insight for the proclamation of repentance and the forgiveness of sins in our day.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.This title offers an introduction for students and lay readers to doing theology in the Lutheran tradition. Lutheran theology found its source, and so its name in Martin Luther in the 16th century. The theology that emerged identified two essential matters for the relationship between humans and God, the law and the gospel. It made a simple but extremely unusual and controversial claim - that it was not the law that made a person right before God s final judgment, but the gospel of Christ s death on the cross for sinners. This book will lay out the implications of having all theology, and so all that can be said of God, humans and creation confessed and delivered in two parts: I, the sinner; and God, the justifier. Doing Theology introduces the major Christian traditions and their way of theological reflection. These volumes focus on the origins of a particular theological tradition, its foundations, key concepts, eminent thinkers and historical development. The series is aimed readers who want to learn more about their own theological heritage and identity: theology undergraduates, students in ministerial training and church study groups.
