5.0 out of 5 stars Get everything you can by Martin Luther and live with it. July 4 2011
By John D. White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I only have one thing to say: "Get everything you can written by Martin Luther and read it until it becomes a part of your soul." He is a master teacher and well worth the effort. The more I read the better Christian I become. There are concepts here that are revolutionary that changed my understanding of Christianity. And that is said by a Presbyterian Minister who has Calvin etched on his heart!!! When preparing sermons I always pull out Calvin and Barth, but I am amazed at how beautiful and powerful Luther is--and worth reading and reflecting on also. Read Luther, then read Luther some more, then read Luther again and again and again and again, and you will make progress, if this is your earnest goal, in the Christian life. Truly a church father for the ages!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Condensed and updated. Very readable. Vitally important. Feb. 6 2013
By Jack Huesman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a condensed version of the original, and that's a good thing. The original, Latin, version runs to about 800 pages and full, verbatim translations run about 1500 pages. What remains in this excellent edition, translated and compiled by Theodore Graebner, contains the essence of Luther's teachings. Luther considered the book of Galatians to be his favorite and the one most useful for showing the true meaning of grace vs works.

You will notice a lot of time is spent attacking the Pope, Luther's former order of monks, and the Catholic Church in general. Please do not set the book aside because of that...besides preserving the historical and personal goings-on that Luther had to deal with during his life, it remains a common belief in many parts of the Christian world today that people teach and believe that sanctification is achieved, or maintained, through works. It is important to understand the book of Galatians in order to debate against that doctrine and lead people to the truth. I read a blog post just a few days ago by a person who said that the Bible never says justification is through faith alone...so knowing how to present Galatians to such people is important, and this book is an excellent aid in learning the doctrine of justification through faith.

There are a few typos, and it would be nice if there were a different font used for the text of the Bible to set it off from the words of Luther, but overall, this is an excellent ebook rendering of the commentary.

That such an important text can be made freely available to everyone is the highest and best use of modern technology. Please get this book, it's free...so what's the worst that can happen...you spend a couple days reading a book that is, at the very least, an important historical document and, at best, an inspired commentary on the book that tells us, once and for all, that our salvation lies in faith in Christ alone.

The central place of this commentary cannot be overstated. It is THE pivotal work setting the stage for basic understanding of Martin Luther, the great Protestant Reformer.

Very good for devotional use. It will help you keep from confusing Law and Gospel or Justification and Sanctification which is so common among Christians today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freed Me From Seventh Day Adventism March 28 2014
By Thomas H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book changed my life forever; It is also my first time ever looking into what Martin Luther knew about the Bible by reading one of his books. Prior to reading this I was a Seventh Day Adventist for nearly 5 years. I knew a little about Jesus before Adventism, but was introduced to Adventism through family. During this 5 years I was taught that the Law and the Gospel were the same thing. To my surprise, Martin brought me straight to the Scriptures to show me that the Law and the Gospel are two completely different forces. I never really touched the book of Galatians as an Adventist, and this commentary forced me to. I am so grateful that the deceptions found within Adventism were rapidly discarded from my mind thanks to the aid of this book. I now know for sure that I am saved by grace by faith in Christ and not by works. This single book tore down in two weeks the walls of superstition that Adventism built in my mind for over 5 years. That should say something.

This read is not only stunning in intellectual depth, but very funny at parts too as Luther uses the aid of metaphors, similes, and even the abuses of the Catholic church itself to prove Scripture. And of course he backs up Scripture with more Scripture, line upon line, here a little, there a little. Even if you feel well versed in righteousness by faith, please read this book; I highly doubt it will fail to solidify your faith in Christ and Christ alone.
