The Freedom of the Christian
The Freedom of the Christian was Martin Luther’s first public defense of the doctrine of justification by grace through faith on account of Christ alone. Luther’s explosive rediscovery of the Gospel of Jesus Christ shattered the Church of Rome’s foundation of works, which considered good works a part of salvation instead of a result of it. Here, Luther constructed a rich theology that relies on the full power of the Gospel, which not only grants saving faith but also nurtures that faith through good works done in the freest service.
This new abridged translation from Adam Francisco, featuring a brief essay from Scott Keith, leaves no doubt that the Christian, secure in Christ, is truly free—free from sin, death, and the devil, and free to serve their neighbor.
