Logos Bible Software is offering another nice little in their “Free Book of the Month” promotion. Partnering with Wipf & Stock this month, Logos is giving away a copy of Hans J. Iwand’s The Righteousness of Faith According to Luther (Wipf & Stock, 2008). Hans J. Iwand (1899-1960) was professor of theology at Gottingen and Bonn. This translation of the 1941 Glaubensgerechtigkeit nach Luthers Lehre was made by Randi H. Lundell. According to the W&S catalog, the book “is an important contribution to contemporary appreciation of Luther’s theological significance for today. Although Iwand wrote his study three decades after the beginning of the Luther Renaissance, it nevertheless developed some of the central insights of Luther scholarship during that period.”
In addition to this free book, Logos is also offering an “almost free” book, Brett Muhlhan, Being Shaped by Freedom: An Examination of Luther’s Development of Christian Liberty (Wipf & Stock 2012). Robert Kolb of Concordia Seminary says “This refreshing analysis contributes significantly to our understanding of the holistic view of Christian righteousness fashioned by Luther’s distinctions of law and gospel and of two kinds of human righteousness.” Muhlhan contents that we can confidently affirm that Luther did indeed get Christian freedom right and that he did not fail to live by the implications of this radical theology (from the cover). The book is only 99 cents for a limited time.
The give-away this month is also Luther-related: Select Studies in Martin Luther’s Life and Influence, Part 1 (15 vols) from Wipf & Stock. The print versions of these books would run well over $300.
