In fourteen studies, Christoph Burger creates an image of Luther as a member of his order, as a theologian who considers men in relation to God as completely dependent on God's grace, and as an exegete of Mary's Magnificat. He describes Luther's assertions about the proper fear of God and an adequate love of God and gives an example of claiming Luther's authority for one's own purposes.
Anyone comparing Martin Luther's writings with those of late medieval theologians will discover astonishing consistencies and upheavals. He will be fascinated by the manner in which Luther not only incorporates late medieval university theology as well as monastic and mystical theology and renders their findings comprehensible for laymen but also, by focusing on Jesus Christ as the only mediator, points theology and piety in a new direction.
