This volume contains a selection of Luther s preaching between May 1531 and June 1539. In the first few years after the decisive Diet of Augsburg (1530) and the presentation of the Augsburg Confession, Luther grappled with how best to teach the doctrine of justification. Sermons dealing with Christian righteousness and the proper distinction of Law and Gospel show how Luther was gradually formulating this theme in a way that could be understood by Christians for generations to come.
Luther s preaching during these years also addressed Baptism, ordination to the preaching office, marriage, Christ s return, the end of the world, the confession of the Trinity in the creeds, and the person of Christ. These sermons make clear that Christian doctrine is not just for the classroom and textbook, but also and especially for the hearing, admonition, and consolation of all Christians.
