The Lutheran faith is a branch within Western, Protestant Christianity that follows sixteenth century reforms to the Roman Catholic Church first proposed by Augustinian monk Martin Luther in 1517.
Luther's attempts to reform the church on the issue of indulgences in his Ninety-Five Theses was largely responsible for sparking the Protestant Reformation. The central tenet of Lutheran theology is a justification by grace alone, through faith alone, and because of Christ alone. Lutheranism is distinguished in a number of ways from other Reformation movements, such as Calvinism or the Reformed faith.
Following Luther and his numerous works, three key figures in the history of Lutheran dogmatic theology are Philipp Melanchthon, Martin Chemnitz, and Johann Gerhard. Logos is proud to offer a number of resources in the Lutheran tradition, with many more to come.
