What did Luther understand by religion? by Karl Holl( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What did Martin Luther look for in religion? What, indeed, did he consider religion to be? Such a question could not have been put to the Reformer in his own day, for he knew nothing of "religion in general." He knew only the faith established in and by Jesus Christ. Subsequent generations, however, are bound to ask the question - not only as a matter of academic concern, but also as a question of life or death for Reformation Christianity. Karl Holl (1866-1926), during his career as Professor at the University of Berlin, set the pattern for all twentieth-century Luther research. Applying sound historical method, he sought to see and hear Luther not through his interpreters but through his own writings. Was verstand Luther unter Religion? - the essay here presented for the first time in English - stands as one of the landmarks of modern historical and theological scholarship concerning the Reformer and the Reformation. It is a work which not merely reconstructs Luther's thought, but also deals with the origin and development of fundamental positions. This volume also includes a translation of Holl's brief essay, "gogarten's Understanding of Luther," a sharp response to the critique offered by crisis theologian Friedrich Gogarten and a further illumination of his own perception of Luther. -- from back cover

4 editions published between 1974 and 1995 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Adams's unique approach to generating ideas and solving problems has captivated, inspired, and guided thousands of people from all walks of life. Now, twenty-five years after its original publication, Conceptual Blockbusting has never been more relevant, powerful, or fresh. Integrating insights from the worlds of psychology, engineering, management, art, and philosophy, Adams identifies the key blocks (perceptual, emotional, cultural, environmental, intellectual, and expressive) that prevent us from realizing the full potential of our fertile minds. Employing unconventional exercises and other interactive elements, Adams shows individuals, teams, and organizations how to overcome these blocks, embrace alternative ways of thinking about complex problems, and celebrate the joy of creativity. With new examples and contemporary references, Conceptual Blockbusting is guaranteed to introduce a new generation of readers to a world of new possibilities. -- Back Cover
