About the Author: Martin Luther

of Martin MOBI ò Martin Luther was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilizationLuther s theology challenged the authority of the papacy by holding that the Bible is the only infallible source of religious authority and that all baptized Christians under Jesus are a spiritual priesthood According to Luther, salvation was a free gift of God, received only by true repentance and faith in Jesus as the Messiah, a faith given by God and unmediated by the churchLuther s confrontation with Charles V at The Sermons MOBI :Ê the Diet of Worms over freedom of conscience in and his refusal to submit to the authority of the Emperor resulted in his being declared an outlaw of the state as he had been excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church Because of the perceived unity of the medieval Church with the secular rulers of western Europe, the widespread acceptance of Luther s doctrines and popular vindication of his thinking on individual liberties were both phenomenal and unprecedentedHis translation of the Bible into the vernacular, making itaccessible to ordinary people, had a tremendous political impact on Sermons of Martin MOBI õ the church and on German culture It furthered the development of a standard version of the German language, added several principles to the art of translation, and influenced the translation of the English King James Bible His hymns inspired the development of congregational singing within Christianity His marriage to Katharina von Bora set a model for the practice of clerical marriage within ProtestantismMuch scholarly debate has concentrated on Luther s writings about the Jews His statements that Jews homes should be destroyed, their synagogues burned, money confiscated and liberty curtailed were revived and used in propaganda by the Nazis in As a result of this and his revolutionary theological views, his legacy remains controversial.

    I was quite disappointed in the content of the book First of all, the format is a bit odd Every edition of each sermon he gave on a handful of Gospel readings is included one right after the other And there isn t that much difference between their contents, just a tweak here and a tweak there, so it seems like one is reading the same thing over and over again That made this long book seem even longer.But then Luther himself makes every passage say the same thing We are saved by faith alone I was quite disappointed in the content of the book First of all, the format is a bit odd Every edition of each sermon he gave on a handful of Gospel readings is included one right after the other And there isn t that much difference between their contents, just a tweak here and a tweak there, so it seems like one is reading the same thing over and over again That made this long book seem even longer.But then Luther himself makes every passage say the same thing We are saved by faith alone He finds it in everything, even where the text doesn t justify it Reminds me of the saying that when one is a hammer, then everything looks like a nail Well, when you are sola fide, everything looks like justification by faith and anti Catholic After a while, it just gets old Given the era in which he wrote and the state of the Church at that time, I m sure his viewpoint was a necessary thing to balance works righteousness, but he just won t hardly touch any other topic I found him not to be so much a theologian as an evangelist I didn t find his analysis that deep, and even at times I found his interpretations flawed I didn t expect this going into the book And at times his theology was borderline heretical he implies a belief in soul sleep and even wanders dangerously close to a material evil, spirit good dualism Also, in trying to maintain a balanced view of the role of works in the life of a Christian, it seems to me he contradicts himself from time to time.Reading it was an education, and I feel I now have a better grasp of the origins of Protestantism But I m glad I ll be moving on to something else soon I have fivebooks in that series, and I won t be in a hurry to get to them

    The seventh and final volume of Martin Luther s complete sermons, which consists of his House Postils on gospel texts for the 15th through 26th Sundays after Trinity, the Festival of Christ s Nativity, and other occasions including the Day of Annunciation, the Day of St John the Baptist, the Day of St Michael and All Angels, among others Each sermon ranges from approximately 10 15 pages in length, and opens with the sermon text, followed by numbered paragraphs containing Luther s expositi The seventh and final volume of Martin Luther s complete sermons, which consists of his House Postils on gospel texts for the 15th through 26th Sundays after Trinity, the Festival of Christ s Nativity, and other occasions including the Day of Annunciation, the Day of St John the Baptist, the Day of St Michael and All Angels, among others Each sermon ranges from approximately 10 15 pages in length, and opens with the sermon text, followed by numbered paragraphs containing Luther s exposition.By and large these sermons are fairly decent, though most of them are far from brilliant Luther s exposition of Isaiah 9 6 in five sermons for the Festival of Christ s Nativity were particularly good, but the remainder of the sermons ranged from merely adequate to downright problematic Luther s high view of Mary is clearly on display, and his hatred for Sacramentarians who dare deny the transubstantiation or the transformative as opposed to merely symbolic power of baptism colors many of his sermons He takes some liberties with the texts he preaches, which is, I suppose, to be expected since he had no training in expositional preaching and it was far from common at the time Thus, unlike the great Puritan preachers or even later figures in the Reformation, Luther did not really have a large body of the sound expositional preaching of others from which to draw.I should clarify that although this is the final volume in the series, it is the first and only volume I have read I chose this volume as my starting place based on the following criteria it is the shortest volume It may be that the other volumes in the series are better But this particular volume was not terribly impressive I did enjoy some of Luther s prosaic if not downright crude phraseology, but it wasn t enough to overcome the generally lackluster quality of the sermons themselves Disclosure I was reading this alongside a volume of sermons by C.H Spurgeon, who fully deserves his reputation as the Prince of Preachers It is entirely possible that Luther s sermons suffered in comparison to Spurgeon s excellent work I do realize that Spurgeon benefited from the something like 300 years of expositional preaching that preceded him following Luther s break with Rome, so the comparison is not really fair Still, some comparison is inevitable

    I have read significant portions of all 7 volumes, though I cannot say I have read every sermon One thing that can be said is that Luther was seldom dull Luther has an enormous range of topics, from the role of alcohol and religion to anti Semitic rants that would be at home in 1940 s Germany He also hates Catholics, but considering the mild disagreements that had recently arisen this seems excusable He does have many insightful things to add to early protestant thought, but most of the heav I have read significant portions of all 7 volumes, though I cannot say I have read every sermon One thing that can be said is that Luther was seldom dull Luther has an enormous range of topics, from the role of alcohol and religion to anti Semitic rants that would be at home in 1940 s Germany He also hates Catholics, but considering the mild disagreements that had recently arisen this seems excusable He does have many insightful things to add to early protestant thought, but most of the heavy lifting in theology had to be left to his contemporaries

    Very good for getting into Luther s head A bit hard to get though but still worth the read.
