"Martin Luther" In Empire and the Christian Tradition
. Minneapolis: Fortress Press 2007
This chapter is a biography of Martin Luther as seen through the lens of the politics of empire. I suggest that Luther‘s reimagining of religious freedom leads to a theology of resistance with respect to ecclesial and imperial authorities of the day, a theological perspective that unfortunately Luther himself does not always follow.
