Welcome to theologia crucis @ luthersmallet.com. This is a blog dedicated to studying what Martin Luther called the theology of the cross, or theologia crucis. Originally defined in Luther’s theses (which were developed for the Heidelberg Disputation in 1518) this ‘theology of the cross’ was in many ways a critical discovery for Luther and the Christian world. The intent of this blog is allow a re-discovery of Luther’s understanding and to see how it impacts all of life and theology. After all, Luther did not invent it, but he came to understand it first from the writings of the Apostle Paul and through the life and death of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I hope your visit to this blog will inspire you to look upon our crucified but risen saviour with new eyes and a new willingness to count all as loss…

Nathan.
