Baptism in the Theology of Martin Luther

Justification by faith and the sacrament of baptism are not necessarily mutually exclusive, even if your name is Martin Luther. Over the course of his lifetime, Luther appeared to contradict himself with regard to his theology on baptism. Trigg provides a comprehensive survey that seeks to understand the evolution of Luther’s baptismal theology within the greater context of his reformation. A cluster of themes are taken into consideration to determine the distinctive qualities of Luther’s theology of baptism and its lasting significance. With a better understanding of Luther’s baptismal theology, this work contributes to the ongoing dialogue and tensions surrounding baptism that persists to this day.
