Abstract and Keywords

African authors have contributed to Luther studies in a number of article-length studies, addressing various aspects of his thought, relating his views particularly to apartheid and other social issues. Luther’s thought finds resonance within African cultures because of its affirmation of human worth in his doctrine of justification, its emphasis on life in community, its cultivation of biblical literacy and catechesis, and his understanding of the heart of humanity in fearing, loving, and trusting in God above all else.

Keywords: Africa, justification by faith, catechesis, Luther and society
