This chapter examines Martin Luther’s theology of salvation. Luther is the most important figure in the Protestant theology of salvation. Trueman explains Martin Luther’s understanding of salvation as the justification by grace through faith in Christ so fundamental to Protestant and Reformed theology, as well as the implications involved in such a theology, including the sacraments, church authority, and the split from Roman Catholicism.
