Trinitarian Grace in Martin Luther's The Bondage of the Will

Miikka Ruokanen

  • Establishes a genuinely new understanding of Martin Luther's major theological treatise The Bondage of the Will
  • Exposes the powerfully Trinitarian and participatory nature of Luther's conception of divine grace in his magnum opus
  • Reveals the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, neglected in Luther research, as an essential part of Luther's understanding of grace
  • Discovering Luther's Trinitarian doctrine of grace intensifies the ecumenical potential of his theology: Luther's conception of grace has connections not only with Protestant theological traditions but also with the doctrines of grace in Eastern Orthodox, Catholic, and Charismatic theologies
  • Verifies the Trinitarian vision of salvation “by grace alone” as the center of Luther's theology
  • Offers a crucial modification and advance to the world-renowned Finnish school of Luther interpretation
