Book Review– The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther (Long Line of Godly Men Profiles)

Posted On August 25, 2014

17171594Martin Luther towers not only as one of the intellectual giants of Western civilization but arguably as one of the most influential men who has ever lived. Luther was a precise theologian, prolific author, fierce debater, captivating teacher and much more. While there is much talk abut Luther, what is often neglected is that he was a pastor and passionate preacher. In his new book, The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther, pastor, author, and conference speaker, Dr. Steven Lawson writes to help readers understand not only who Luther was, but also why his ministry is important today.

The book has six chapters. In chapter one, Lawson explores the life and legacy of Luther. Chapters two provides the foundation for the book by explaining Luther’s views on the doctrine of Scripture. Chapter three and four show how Luther’s view of Scripture worked itself into his sermon preparation by illustrating how Luther, not only held to a high view of God’s Word, but, sought to apply it to his life and his hearers. Chapter five and six look at the boldness of Luther in the pulpit. The book concludes with a call for more Luther’s, those who passionately study the Word of God in order to declare the Word with authority and power in the pulpit.

The Heroic Boldness of Martin Luther is a very good short biography that will help pastors, Sunday school teachers and lay people understand the significance of Martin Luther’s ministry. Luther, along with Calvin helped bring the gospel to a land, to people groups and nations that were in need of the gospel. There is the same need for reformation around the gospel as the church is always to be reforming around the Word of God. This is exactly why we need biographies like this one on Luther to remind us of how the gospel has transformed people’s lives in the past and how it will in the present and future. Luther was a man of deep gospel-shaped conviction and vision. His life was set ablaze by the gospel. I encourage you to take up and read this book. As you read I pray your passion will be renewed and your vision expanded to the glory of God.
