Timothy J. Wengert explores the genesis of Lutheran biblical interpretation by tracing the early work and methods of Martin Luther and other Wittenberg exegetes. Their new approach led them to view Scripture in terms they called "law and gospel," to read and translate the Greek and Hebrew text, and to focus on a theology of the cross and justification by faith. Wengert then demonstrates how these approaches can used in preaching and teaching today.

This vision views cultural, linguistic, racial, and ethnic differences as gifts from God that can enrich the church's worship, deepen its sense of fellowship, and broaden the church's witness to God's reconciling mission in the world.
