Dr. Mayes continues, “The last part of our new volume is truly unique. For the first time, we have collected and translated all of Luther's sermons on John 20:19–31, where Jesus breathes on His disciples, gives them the Holy Spirit, and bestows on them His authority to forgive and retain sins. The sermons here in Luther’s Works 69 show in what ways Luther's explanation of this passage changed through his career, and in what ways it stayed the same. In every sermon Luther's concern to uphold the forgiveness of sins through the word of absolution is clear and heartening.” Luther’s Works: American Edition has been well received by scholars and church leaders. Mark U. Edwards, Jr., Academic Dean at Harvard Divinity School, says, “This 20- volume new series splendidly complements its 55-volume predecessor and offers a treasure-trove of writings never before available in English, writings crucial to understanding Luther’s life, thought, and profound influence throughout the centuries.” Carter Lindberg, Professor of Church History Emeritus at Boston University School of Theology, states, “Volume 69, Sermons on the Gospel of St. John, 17–20, is a superb example of what we can expect from the edition’s general editor, Christopher Brown. Pastors, professors, and students will profit from the judicious choice of Luther’s sermons, disputations, and exegetical works.” Robert Kolb, Missions Professor of Systematic Theology and Director of the Institute for Mission Studies at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, says, “The volumes are being edited according to the highest academic standards and their introductions and notes offer readers helpful guides to the context and content of the reformer’s writings. Casual readers and those seeking to expand and deepen their knowledge of the Reformation will profit greatly from these carefully translated and edited volumes.” Short URL: http://pitch.pe/26796 About Concordia Publishing House Concordia Publishing House is a not-for-profit publishing company and the publisher of The Lutheran Churchâ€”Missouri Synod.
