Martin Luther (1483-1546) stands as one of the giant figures in history. His activities, writings, and legacy have had a huge effect on the western world. This Cambridge Companion provides an accessible introduction to Martin Luther for students of theology and history and for others interested in the life, work and thought of the first great Protestant reformer. The book contains eighteen chapters by an international array of major Luther scholars. Historians and theologians join here to present a full picture of Luther's contexts, the major themes in his writings, and the ways in which his ideas spread and have continuing importance today. Each chapter serves as a guide to its topic and provides further reading for additional study. The Companion will assist those with little or no background in Luther studies, while teachers and Luther specialists will find this accessible volume an invaluable aid to their work.

'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
