The development of Martin Luther's thought was both a symptom and moving force in the transformation of the Middle Ages into the modern world. Geographical discovery, an emerging scientific tradition, and a climate of social change had splintered the unity of medieval Christian culture, and these changes provided the background for Luther's theological challenge. His new apprehension of Scripture and fresh understanding of man's relation to God demanded a break with the Church as then constituted and released the powerful impulses that carried the Reformation. Luther's vigorous, colorful language still retains the excitement it had for thousands of his contemporaries. In this volume, Dr. Dillenberger has made a representative selection from Luther's extensive writings, and has also provided the reader with a lucid introduction to his thought.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Protestant Thought and Natural Science presents a concise interpretation of the relations between natural scientists and Protestant theologians from the Reformation to the present day. The book penetrates behind the skirmishes to the underlying issues in a manner not achieved before. From the introduction: "This volume is not a history of the conflicts between theology and science nor of the harmony between the two. It is, however, an attempt to penetrate behind the concrete issues, of which we all are aware in some form or another, to the underlying problems which exercised the major parties in the debates." John Dillenberger's firsthand knowledge of the source material has enabled him to break through the "science-and-religion" stereotype in an account at once complex and interesting.
