Luther's Theologoumenon : preached/unpreached -- Jonah, God's worm -- God against the gods -- Adam's fall and Cain's failure : the search for the non-accusatory law -- Paul at the Areopagus : the search for "the unknown God" -- Adam's first sermon -- Moses sees glory -- David's trial : absolute and absolution -- Luther's new cabala : Christ, the hated God.

In this second of three volumes addressing Luther's outlaw God, Steven D. Paulson uses several biblical figures (Ezekiel, Jonah, Moses, David, and more) to illustrate Luther's understanding of law and gospel what this means for preaching. Paulson shows that the challenge of all preaching is revealing God's actual grace without using the law at all. The gospel is what freed Luther from thinking of the world as split into two: an obscure world where law accuses and a magical world where the law blesses. With remarkable depth and clarity, Paulson explores the question: Where do we find a gracious God? For Luther, it was not in the law, but only in the publicly executed and hated God, Jesus Christ, hidden in the cross.
