Sasja E.M. Stopa explores the influence of honour
and glory on Martin Luther’s theology. Luther’s works
overflow with terminology of honour and glory. Analysing a
broad selection hereof, Stopa argues that his doctrine of
justification centers on a soteriological concern for the
recreation of human glory lost in the Fall and a doxological
concern for God’s glory stolen by sinners. Stopa shows how
this relation to God patterns Luther’s understanding of
social relations and discusses justification as a process of
mutual recognition translating Luther’s theology of glory
into contemporary theology.
