Luther’s Bondage of the Will
The famous, no, infamous, no, notorious treatise by the reformer at his most white-hot passionate. Mild-mannered Erasmus didn't stand a chance. And neither do you. Which turns out to be good news!
In this episode Dad and I sort out what The Bondage of the Will is actually about, what it isn't about, how it is true freedom even for religiously-minded people (maybe especially for them...?), and the delights of a theology you can't possibly programitize.
1. Luther, Bondage of the Will, in LW 33
2. Kolb, Bound Choice, Election, and Wittenberg Theological Method
3. Vestrucci, Theology as Freedom
4. Ruokanen, Trinitarian Grace in Martin Luther's The Bondage of the Will
