With great clarity and insight, James M. Estes illuminates Luther’s call to secular authorities to help with the reform of the church in this important 1520 treatise. To combat Rome’s intransigent opposition to reform of any sort, Luther appealed to secular rulers to intervene and clear the way for ecclesiastical reform.

Timothy J. Wengert shows Luther’s Treatise on Good Works to be one of the clearest introductions to Luther’s reforming work and theology.

To this letter he appended a nonpolemical tract describing the heart of his beliefs, The Freedom of a Christian.
