THE CHRISTIAN IN SOCIETY (IV), by Martin Luther [this is volume 47 of Luther's Works] Controversy has always surrounded attempts to define the Christian's role in society. In these four treatises, written between 1530 and 1542, we see Luther wrestling with volatile aspects of the Christian's ethical attitude toward the governing authorities, toward other Christians who appeared to be preaching incorrect doctrines, and toward Jews. INCLUDES: 1. Dr. Martin Luther's Warning to His Dear German People (1531). He presents the argument that under certain circumstances Christians may legitimately refuse to obey an emperor's call to arms. 2. Against the Sabbatarians: Letter to a Good Friend (1538). 3. Against the Antinomians (1539). In this treatise Luther argued that law and gospel must be kept in tension with one another. 4. On the Jews and Their Lies (1543) (Treatises 2 and 4 above reflect Luther's gowing hostility toward the Jews in the face of their refusal to accept the Christian gospel even as it was preached by the evangelicals.)
