This is a new title in the "Facets" series. It provides an interesting and entertaining introduction to Martin Luther's thought. It shows how Luther enjoyed using humour in his interpretation of the Bible, his pastoral relationships and his encounters with death. It reveals that humour in the face of mortality is an indication of human freedom, a way of making life a divine comedy. It brings out the deeper religious meaning behind Luther's theological thought.
