Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Martin Luther as Comforter: Writings on Death presents a table of content, preface, acknowledgements, list of abbreviations and introduction. By examining Luther's writings on death and suffering, this book helps us to consider several important aspects of death. By looking closely at how Luther argues, we can learn the power his discourse has to convince readers what can be done about death: it cannot be avoided, but we can face it victoriously. Moreover, scholars have begun to discover Luther's role as a Seelsorger, a healer of souls; consequently, his writings on death are the very discourse for encountering Luther's efforts to comfort.
