NEW book from LUMEN on honor and glory in Luthers Theology by Sasja Emilie Mathiasen Stopa.
Sasja Emilie Mathiasen Stopa, Soli Deo Honor et Gloria: Honour and Glory in the Theology of Martin Luther. Nordic Studies in Theology / Nordische Studien zur Theologie, Berlin: LIT Verlag, 2021.
Sasja E.M. Stopa explores the influence of honour and glory on Martin Luther’s theology. Luther’s works overflow with terminology of honour and glory. Analysing a broad selection of this terminology, Stopa argues that his doctrine of justification centres on a soteriological concern for the recreation of human glory lost in the Fall and a doxological concern for God’s glory stolen by sinners. Stopa shows how this relation to God patterns Luther’s understanding of social relations, and discusses justification as a process of mutual recognition translating Luther’s theology of glory into contemporary theology.
