Description

Always aware that Word and Spirit are conjoined, this man of the Word lived intensely in the Spirit. Few understood better than he that "we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers." Assailed from without and from within throughout his turbulent career as a Reformer, Luther was intimately with Anfechtung (assault, temptation, trial). While what he saw contradicted the gospel, his "theology of the cross" left him hearing his Lord's "voice". Therein he possessed the comfort of that "caretaker who lies in a cradle and rests on a virgin's bosom, yet nevertheless sits at the right hand of God, the Father almighty."
