Preface to the Letter of St. Paul to the Romans

by Martin Luther

Summary

Martin Luther’s Preface to the Letter of St. Paul to the Romans summarizes the core belief of the Reformation: justification by faith in Christ. The relatively short document can even serve as an introduction to the Reformation movement as a whole, as it uniquely and succinctly lays out some of its characteristic ideas. As well as covering the relationship between faith and good works, Luther addresses the nature of sanctification in general and the conflict between the spirit and the flesh. The Preface to the Letter of St. Paul to the Romans is a quick and rewarding read, serving as a gateway text to the Reformation and the theology of Martin Luther.
