From the Dustjacket:
By far the most important influence on Luther's life and work was the Word of God. In this book Dr. Wood places him against the background of this supreme influence in his life, and in doing so gives us a balanced and objective portrait. Very little is currently available on Luther's theology in English and still less on his view of Scripture. This book therefore fills a real gap. Dr. Wood deals freely with the influenced of the Scriptures on Luther, and then with his use of the Bible and his attitude to the issues of authority and interpretation.
But its importance goes far beyond its historical perspective. The vital issues of the Reformation are being raised afresh today, and the slogan sola Scriptura is being subjected to reassessment. It is therefore vital that we know what Luther actually believed and taught if we are to understand his position and relate it to our own. As we read on, we find that many of the issues that Luther faced have vital relevance today, and that there is much that we can learn from his fearless and unwavering adherence to the revelation of God in Scripture.
