Luther and the Bible


Of the Christian’s relationship to the Bible, Luther said: “The Holy Scriptures require a humble reader who shows reverence and fear toward the Word of God, and constantly says, ‘[t]each me, teach me, teach me’”. It is no secret that Luther loved the Bible, and that his reformation was rooted it a critical-literal method of understanding the Bible’s message. Luther and the Bible explores Luther’s relationship with the Bible from both a scholar-pastor and personal-intimate perspective. Luther scholar Theophilus Stork, who made a career of isolating and explaining key aspects of Luther’s life, provides a welcoming and warm narrative about how Luther loved the Bible and used it to transform Christianity.
