Summary

The Bondage of the Will is fundamental to an understanding of the primary doctrines of the Reformation. In these pages, Luther gives extensive treatment to what he saw as the heart of the gospel.

Free will was no academic question to Luther; the whole gospel of the grace of God, he believed, was bound up with it and stood or fell according to the way one decided it. Luther affirms our total inability to save ourselves and the sovereignty of divine grace in our salvation. He upholds the doctrine of justification by faith and defends predestination as determined by the foreknowledge of God.

The Bondage of the Will is Martin Luther’s finest theological writing. Few works more convincingly tell us of man’s depravity and need for God’s sovereign grace.
—R.C. Sproul

My favorite theology book ever—a solidly biblical, potently written defense of the sovereignty of God in our salvation, and the depravity of man. Luther hear utterly decimates the notion that man has in himself the ability to embrace the work of Christ for us.”
R.C. Sproul Jr.
