Reformation & Revival
"This important book introduces to the English-speaking world the new Finnish interpretation of the theology of Luther, initiated by the writings of Tuomo Mannermaa of Helsinki University. . . Offers some interesting historical/theological insights that may aid the necessary recovery of biblical balance for what is truly important to serious evangelicalism."
Theology Today
"The editors are to be congratulated for offering for the first time in English a handy synopsis of current Finnish scholarship on Luther by its leading proponents, whose theories have attracted considerable attention in recent times."
Word & World
"This book is valuable for the introduction of English-speaking Lutherans to the world of Finnish Luther interpretation. . . The reflective pastor will be able to recognize new angles for preaching and teaching that run counter to traditional conceptions. The Finns deserve praise for their efforts to provide a new entry point into the magnificent corpus of Luther's work."
St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly
"Even in a time when there is so much turmoil in the ecumenical movement, conflicts within the WCC and NCC, protests from member churches, particularly criticism from the Orthodox churches and strong appeals for quitting ecumenical participation by the Orthodox, it is heartening to be able to point out something genuinely good, true and beautiful, stemming from encounters among divided Christians. This excellent volume of essays by the recent or 'new' Finnish Lutheran scholars is just such a find."
