Wilfried Härle uses reformational theology, in particular Martin Luther's doctrine of justification, applying it to current ideological and ethical debates surrounding the concept of man in our society – including the ethical questions in the field of medicine which are presently the main issues under discussion.
In the essays in this volume, most of which are previously unpublished, Wilfried Härle uses reformational theology, in particular Martin Luther's doctrine of justification, applying it to current ideological and ethical debates surrounding the concept of man in our society – including the ethical questions in the field of medicine which are presently the main issues under discussion. The studies focus on what Luther, in reference to Paul (Romans 3:28) called the theological definition of man: »that a man is justified by faith« (»Hominem iustificari fide«). Wilfried Härle shows that the anthropological views contained in this definition are correct and are of fundamental importance.
