Most widely held works by Oswald Bayer
Living by faith : justification and sanctification by Oswald Bayer( Book )

21 editions published between 1984 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Living by faith" is much more than a general Christian precept; it is the fundamental posture of believers in a world rife with suffering and injustice. In this penetrating reflection on the meaning of "justification," Oswald Bayer shows how this key religious term provides a comprehensive horizon for discussing every aspect of Christian theology, from creation to the end times

Martin Luther's theology : a contemporary interpretation by Oswald Bayer( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Forty years of in-depth research on Martin Luther's theology uniquely qualifies Oswald Bayer to present this comprehensive introduction to Luther's thought, written for those lacking an academic background in theology." "Bayer's noteworthy study explores the basics of Luther's understanding of theology, discussing his response to the "philosophy of science" tradition, the formula by which he studied theology, and the basic philosophy that informed him. Bayer then takes Luther's stance on Christian dogmatics and ethics and applies it to our own theological understanding in the modern age. With such a complete Lutheran dogmatic concept - the first of its kind offered - the stunning inner consistency of Luther's theology and its ease of application to contemporary studies become unmistakably clear."--Jacket
Freedom in response : Lutheran ethics : sources and controversies by Oswald Bayer( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The leitmotif of Freedom in Response, as the title suggests, is a reasoned exposition of the nature of freedom, as it is presented in the Bible and developed by such later theologians as Martin Luther. Oswald Bayer considers Luther's teachings on pastoral care, marriage, and the three estates, bringing in Kant and Hegel as conversation partners, together with Kant's friend and critic, the innovative theologian and philosopher Johann Georg Hamann. Oswald Bayer is a major contemporary Lutheran theologian, but so far little of his work has been translated from German into English. This selection of essays indicates the depth and range of his thought on issues relating to theological ethics."--Publisher description
Schöpfung als Anrede : zu einer Hermeneutik der Schöpfung by Oswald Bayer( Book )

17 editions published between 1986 and 1990 in German and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Luthers Theologie : eine Vergegenwärtigung by Oswald Bayer( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in German and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oswald Bayer, evangelischer Systematiker in Tü bingen, beabsichtigt in seiner neuesten Monographie, Luthers Theologie zu vergegenwärtigen. Bayer will den Wittenberger Reformator den Menschen von heute nahebringen, weil Luther ihnen mit seiner Rechtfertigungslehre etwas zu sagen habe; dies nähmlich, dass Gott dem Menschen immer schon zuvorgekommen ist. Diese Botschaft wolle in der Gegenwart aber niemand hören. So diagnostiziert Bayer, der sich damit als Zeuge wider den Zeitgeist der Moderne präsentiert
Creator est creatura : Luthers Christologie als Lehre von der Idiomenkommunikation by Oswald Bayer( )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in German and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: The anthologyexamines the historical and systematic dimensions of Luther's concentration of Christology on language-philosophically conceptualized communication through the use of idioms. In addition to background analysis on the history of tradition, historically there are also extensive reception-historical investigations on the Late Reformation and Orthodoxy. The work addresses not only the underlying metaphor theory, but also the capacity of the concept as a whole
