This book presents, for the first time in English, Tuomo Mannermaa's controversial publication regarding Martin Luther's understanding of faith and its relationship to justification, as well as the Christian life. Originally composed in Finnish as In ipsa fide Christus adest some 25 years ago, and available in German shortly thereafter, Christ Present in Faith has lost none of its value and force for contemporary Christological and soteriological discussions, especially within confessional Lutheran circles.
Rev. John J. Bombaro (Ph.D., King's College, University of London) is the parish minister at Grace Lutheran Church in San Diego, California and a lecturer in theology and religious studies at the University of San Diego.
