Reading the word with the heart: Luther's Large Catechism and the practice of faith
Author
Margaret V Schultz-Akerson
Abstract
This project recognizes Luther's Large catechism as an underutilized resource and assesses its potential for the ecumenical field of spirituality. Limited to the Ten Commandments the research involved reflection on Luther's explanation of the latter nine commandments in light of a proper observance of the First Commandment. Responses recommend developing a resource that facilitates reflection on Luther's original writing and looks past what is off-putting to what still nourishes today.
