Luther und die Reformation aus freikirchlicher Sicht
The upcoming anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 presents believers' church theologians with an opportunity to reflect upon their relation to the Reformation in general and Martin Luther in particular - not only from a historical but also from a present point of view. This volume includes representative articles from Baptist, Methodist and Free Evangelical perspectives. The contributions offer some surprising insights and reveal a variety of approaches to Luther and the Reformation within the different strands of the free church tradition. To what extent can believers' churches claim to be legitimate heirs of the Reformation and, at the same time, represent a distinctly independent manifestation of evangelical Christianity? This book will serve readers from free church backgrounds in their ecumenical quest, and it will supply readers from established church backgrounds with enough material to enter into an dialog with free churches about the significance of Luther and the Reformation for today's Church.
