Freedom in Response

Oswald Bayer


The leitmotif of this book is a reasoned exposition of the nature of freedom, as it is presented in the Bible and developed by such later theologians as Martin Luther. The book considers Luther’s teachings on pastoral care, marriage, and the three estates, bringing in Kant and Hegel as conversation partners, together with Kant’s friend and critic, the innovative theologian and philosopher Johann Georg Hamann.

Keywords: freedom, Bible, theologians, Martin Luther, pastoral care, marriage, three estates, Kant, Hegel, Johann Georg Hamann
