El sufrimiento es un dilema mundial; los pastores del pueblo de Dios en todos los países tienen que saber cómo ministrar a sus rebaños durante tiempos de aflicción. Dios se nos reveló por medio del sufrimiento y la muerte de su Hijo en la cruz. Este título prepara a los lectores para traer a los que les han sido encomendados más y más cerca de él en medio de las angustias y dificultades de esta vida.

Por medio de cartas seleccionadas, Martín Lutero: Predicador de la cruz presenta con clarividencia cómo el reformador aplica su teología evangélica. Lutero creía que, sobre todo, el pastor ofrece consejo espiritual, y esto es nada menos que hablar de las cosas de la fe:

  • la centralidad de Cristo solo
  • la teología de la cruz
  • la externalidad del evangelio y los sacramentos
  • el uso de ley y evangelio
  • el consuelo de la resurrección
  • la congregación cristiana como el contexto para el cuidado pastoral

Este libro revelador promueve el papel bíblico y confesional del pastor como el cuidador de almas. 


“Este libro es una contribución significativa a la teología pastoral. No solo leemos mucho acerca de Lutero, sino que el libro también anima a los pastores a que lo sigan. Los pastores están encargados de ser los cuidadores de las conciencias afligidas y los desafíos de la vida; este libro llama de nuevo la atención sobre la verdad y seriedad del cuidado y ministerio pastoral.”

—Dr. Klaus Detlev Schulz, Moderador del Ministerio Pastoral y Misiones, Supervisor del programa doctorado en Misiología, y Decano de estudios de postgrado, Seminario Teológico Concordia, Ft. Wayne, IN

“Aquí hay perspicacia para llevar a cabo un ministerio diario de enseñar, desafiar, y consolar que verdaderamente cuida de las almas. Los pastores que se enfrentan con peticiones de ser todas las cosas para todas las personas encontrarán en este libro una base para discernir lo importante de lo no importante. Encontrarán la concentración y la energía para vivir sus llamados divinos.”

—Dr. Mark C. Mattes, Profesor de filosofía y teología, Universidad de Grand View, Des Moines, IA

Martin Lutero: Predicador de la cruz es un libro excelente, útil, e inspirador que presenta un nuevo patrón para el cuidado pastoral del futuro. ¡No hay que perdérselo!”

—Dr. Steven D. Paulson

Suffering is a global predicament; the shepherds of God’s people in every nation need to know how to minister to their flocks in times of trial. God revealed Himself to us through His Son’s suffering and death on the cross. This title equips readers to bring those entrusted to their care closer to Him amid the sorrows and afflictions of this life.

Through the use of selected letters,
Martin Luther: Preacher of the Cross presents compelling evidence for the reformer’s application of his evangelical theology. Luther believed that above all else, the pastor offers spiritual counsel, and this is nothing less than speaking the stuff of faith:
  • the centrality of Christ alone
  • the theology of the cross
  • the externality of the Gospel and Sacraments
  • use of Law and Gospel
  • the consolation of the resurrection
  • the Christian congregation as the context for pastoral care. 

This insightful book advances the scriptural and confessional role of the pastor as the caretaker of souls.


“This book is a significant contribution to pastoral theology. Not only do we read much about Luther, but this book also beckons pastors to follow suit. Pastors are entrusted with the task of being caretakers of people’s troubled consciences and struggles in life; this book will again bring to the attention the truth and seriousness of pastoral care and ministry.”

—Dr. Klaus Detlev Schulz, Chairman of Pastoral Ministry and Missions, Supervisor of the Missiology PhD program, and Dean of Graduate Studies, Concordia Theological Seminary, Ft. Wayne, IN

“Here is insight to do a daily ministry of teaching, challenging, and comforting that truly cares for souls. Pastors facing requests to be all things to all people will find in this guide a basis for discerning what is important from what is not. They will find focus and energy to fulfill their God-appointed calling.”

—Dr. Mark C. Mattes, Professor of Philosophy and Theology, Grand View University, Des Moines, IA

Martin Luther: Preacher of the Cross is a great, useful, and inspirational book that sets a new standard for the pastoral care of the future. It is not to be missed!”

—Dr. Steven D. Paulson
