The Augsburg Fortress Lutheran Studies Collection contains six volumes on Martin Luther’s theology, with contributions from various disciplines. The collection analyzes Luther’s relationship with philosophy, including his philosophical formation, influence on major philosophers, and impact on twenty-first-century philosophy. It examines the Lutheran Confessions in their political, social, ecclesiastical, and theological contexts and studies Luther’s relationship with Jews and Judaism. The collection includes Philip Jacob Spener’s famous Pia Desideria, a response to the shortcomings in the Reformation, in which he presents a new system of Christian living among civil authorities, clergy, and common people in keeping with Luther’s Reformation motives. It also includes Luther’s Treatise on Good Works, with an introduction by Scott Hendrix on the Good Works dilemma, in which justification by faith alone has—and was—been misunderstood and misrepresented. The Augsburg Fortress Lutheran Studies Collection puts Luther’s thought in a twenty-first-century context and illustrates its contemporary relevance.
