THE REINTERPRETATION OF LUTHER

One of the most completely Protestant countries in the world is Sweden, and Swedish Protestantism is almost 100% Lutheran. Despite that fact the influence of Swedish Protestantism upon the life and thought of continental Protestantism has been until recently overshadowed by that of Germany and Switzerland. With the disruption of church life in Germany, Sweden is assuming a greater prominence in church circles. It is timely, therefore, to have this volume which is devoted to an outline of the contribution of Swedish thought to Protestant theology, particularly through its interpretation of the teaching of Martin Luther. The approach to Luther and the analysis of his teaching made by such Swedish theologians as Aulen, Nygren, Soderblom and Billing is described in considerable detail. Students of continental theology, Lutheran pastors and theologians will welcome this scholarly volume.
