Book giveaway – The Theology of Martin Luther

As I mentioned after last month’s book giveaway, a generous individual has decided that he would also like to share the wealth (i.e. give away a book that he accidentally bought two copies of). So, this month we’re giving away a new copy of Paul Althaus’ The Theology of Martin Luther. Although this book was published in English in 1966, I think this is still one of the best books around for understanding Luther’s theology. So, if you’re interested in engaging Luther’s thought more closely, this would be a great place to start.

As with our previous giveaway, the rules are simple. If you’d like a chance to win the book, you need to do at least one of the following. Each different way that you enter the contest will increase your chances of winning. (Assuming that I don’t just decide to give the book to the person whose name has the same numerical value of the guinea pig I had when I was a kid.)

  • Blog about the giveaway and link to this post
  • Link to the post from Twitter and let me know in the comments
  • Link to the post from Facebook and let me know in the comments
  • Comment on this post and indicate that you want the book
  • Come up with a list of 95 Theses that you’d really like to debate with someone. Write your theses on an old-looking piece of paper and making a video of you nailing your theses to the front door of some church (not your own). Bonus points if you can get the pastor to come out and yell at you.

  1. I “tweeted” for ya. Would be an interesting read. I’m working on the 95 thesis part next-

  2. I would like the book as well. Thanks for the contest!

  3. read that gem years ago. althaus… though… he’s a problematic character.

  4. oh what’s that ya say? why problematic? well because he was an outspoken supporter of hitler. indeed, he called him a gift from heaven.

  5. A very good book still! BTW Marc, on another subject if I can ask? Have you read, anything by the R. Catholic, Henri de Lubac? I have liked him for many years. his, Theology In History is a classic to me. He always seeks to understand Augustine, and perhaps the first modern Pascal.

  6. Kittel supported Hitler too, didn’t he?

  7. I want the book.

  8. I would love to win and read this book. Please enter me in this giveaway!


  9. In case the pinkbacks don’t count, I’m in!

  10. That should read pingbacks! *doh*
