“In this volume Hamm harvests the fruits of forty years of studying the late medieval `theology of piety’ and places Luther in its context, illuminating many aspects of what Hamm rightly sees as the gradual development of Luther’s evangelical understanding of Scripture. This perspective enriches our understanding of why and how his theology took form and how it functioned within the milieu in which Luther grew up and began his career.” –Robert Kolb, Concordia Seminary

Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
