Luther on the Christian Life: Cross and Freedom, by Carl R. Trueman

Luther on the Christian Life: Cross and FreedomOne of the things this book endeavors is to contrast Luther with contemporary evangelicalism. It is done in the interest of historical accuracy and proper Christian memory of the past, but also in the interests of contemporary evangelicals. Christian history is a great repository of wisdom, insight and warnings, but we have to get it right to obtain the benefits. Trueman’s message about Luther is: accept no substitutes, they aren’t worth it.

It’s a good book.
