'This is a fresh and provocative introduction to Luther, introducing both old themes and new ...[it can] be commended to both student and specialist.' Methodist Recorder
'Whilst this impressive collection has in mind those coming to Luther's works and importance for the first time, it will also prove most useful to those who wish to refresh their knowledge or those who wish to see the latest thinking on the father of the Reformation.' Contemporary Review
'... the variety and distinctiveness of the contributions render this volume an excellent theological introduction into as well as overview of Luther's work and significance, past and present.' Scripture Bulletin
'Highly recommended!' International Review of Biblical Studies
'... sustains a high level of discussion and provides over 300 pages of essays on different aspects of its subject. The book contains much of real value, and combines biographical, bibliographical, historical and theological approaches. Its strength is the attention it gives to the variety of roles Luther played in his life and to the way Luther has been read and used in subsequent history. The volume manages to cover a good deal of ground and offers a comprehensive guide to the state of Luther studies today. ... a useful addition to the literature, and is a valuable introductory guide. ... as a general book introducing the reader to themes in Luther studies today, it serves a valuable purpose and deserves adding to libraries and bookshelves of those responsible for teaching Luther.' International Journal of Systematic Theology
"This is a work that should be in every library." Choice
"The Cambridge Companion to Martin Luther provides students and general readers an initial foray into Luther's thought, and a foretaste of what is to come should they choose to study Luther seriously." Trinity Seminary Review Dennis Bielfeldt, South Dakota State University
