Explores a long-neglected aspect of Martin Lutherhis life and ministry as a pastor. / Sixteen church historians here examine Martin Luther in an uncommon way ? not as Reformer or theologian but as pastor. Luther's work as parish pastor commanded much of his time and energy in Wittenberg. / After first introducing the pastoral Luther, including his theology of the cross, these chapters discuss Luther's preaching and use of language (including humor), investigate his teaching ministry in depth, especially in light of the catechism, and explore his views on such things as the role of women, the Virgin Mary, and music. The book finally probes Luther's sentiments on monasticism and secular authority. / Contributors: Charles P. Arand, James M. Estes, Eric W. Gritsch, Robert Kolb, Beth Kreitzer, Robin A. Leaver, Mickey L. Mattox, Ronald Rittgers, Robert Rosin, Reinhard Schwarz, Jane E. Strohl, Christoph Weimer, Dorothea Wendebourg, Timothy J. Wengert, V?tor Westhelle, H. S. Wilson."
