An Essential Resource for Pastors, Scholars, and Students
"An immensely valuable resource. Wide-reaching in scope and brimming with first-rate scholarship, this dictionary will be indispensable for anyone interested in Luther and the global history of Lutheranism."
--Carlos Eire, T. Lawrason Riggs Professor of History and Religious Studies, Yale University
"This comprehensive dictionary of Lutheranism will be a welcome addition to the library of anyone with interest in the Lutheran Reformation or the progress of Lutheranism to the present day. It is a gold mine of useful information on the topic, all contained conveniently between two boards."
--Tony Lane, professor of historical theology, London School of Theology
"Remarkable in its comprehensiveness, this volume is at once deeply attentive to the figures and ideas that spawned the Lutheran movement in sixteenth-century Germany and truly catholic in its coverage of that movement's subsequent theological development and global expansion. The scope and precision of the hundreds of entries, penned by leading scholars from across (and beyond) the Lutheran world, make the Dictionary of Luther and the Lutheran Traditions an essential reference work for pastors and scholars seeking to engage the full breadth of Lutheran faith and practice in all its diversity."
--Ian A. McFarland, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge
"This book is a most welcome and highly informative tool for commemorating five hundred years of the Reformation. In an impressive way, it presents not only the complex cosmos of the Reformation in the sixteenth century but also the spread of Lutheranism through time and space, offering an overview of Lutheran intellectual history. Especially helpful are the entries on Lutheranism in various countries and on unfamiliar but remarkable personalities."
--Theodor Dieter, Institute for Ecumenical Research, Strasbourg
"Rarely if ever has there been such a treasure trove of resources about Martin Luther and the traditions that bear his name gathered in one place. Well-researched, thorough, and highly readable, the Dictionary of Luther and the Lutheran Traditions draws from a constellation of the world's most highly regarded Luther scholars to produce the definitive guide to the Lutheran church. It is a singular and remarkable achievement."
--David J. Lose, senior pastor, Mount Olivet Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota; past president, The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia
"This exceptional reference work contains outstanding, wide-ranging, and well-written contributions covered by a superb group of scholars."
--Jon Balserak, senior lecturer in early modern religion, University of Bristol; visiting scholar in history, University of Illinois at Chicago
