Theologia Germanica


Read by J A Carter

(5 stars; 12 reviews)

This short, anonymous work is thought to have been written in the 1300s by a member of the lay-religious group called ‘The Friends of God.’ Its central teaching is that humans can become one with God by living a holy, selfless life in which our will is subsumed into God’s, of which Christ is the ultimate example. Martin Luther discovered, named, and published Theologia Germanica in 1516, declaring that, "Next to the Bible and St. Augustine, no book has ever come into my hands from which I have learnt more of God and Christ, and man and all things that are."

Reviews

A Thorough and Bright Classic

(5 stars)

Well delivered by the narrator, and a jewel in and of itself on the inside and outs of our faith. Cuts through the heart of any divides in Christendom (I speak as an Eastern Orthodox Christian); I'll be listening to it again, and often.

Excellent!

(5 stars)

This book has really had an influence upon me & has deepened my faith. It is a text which, I feel, is of great service both historical study & in contemporary Christianity. This recording is well read. Thank you for posting it!

I can only recommend any true Christian to listen to this book!
