"Robert Kolb's study of changing interpretations of Luther's life and work is a valuable contribution to Luther studies. In particular, it demonstrates the impact of Luther on German theological thinking since the 16th century."--Dr. John Johnson, President, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO"Professor Kolb has woven a fascinating tale about the effect of Luther on his theological heirs. Here, in an easy-to-read, yet scholarly account, the reader is expertly led through a labyrinth of sixteenth-century Luther reception. Kolb's grasp of the pertinent secondary literature and his command of a vast array of primary sources combine to reveal the variety of ways early Lutherans and others sought to comprehend how the Reformer had changed the religious and social landscape of the early modern German lands. This is a landmark study with which everyone interested in Luther studies will need to grapple."--Timothy J. Wengert, Professor, The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia
