Book summary

Acknowledged by theologians as one of the great masterpieces of the Reformation, Martin Luthers Bondage of the Will was also Luthers favorite work. Luther responds to Desiderius Erasmus Diatribe on Free Will with the bluntness, genius, sarcasm, and spirituality that were as much a part of his writing as they were of his colorful personality. Luther writes lucidly on the themes of mans inability and Gods ability, mans depravity and Gods sovereignty. The crucial issue for Luther concerned what ability free will has, and to what degree it is subject to Gods sovereignty. Luthers doctrine of salvation pivoted on this key issue. Is man able to save himself, or is his salvation completely a work of divine grace? This work will long remain among the great theological classics of Christian history. Bondage of the Will was first published in 1525, eight years after Luther penned his Ninety-Five Theses. [via]
