What is your favorite book by Martin Luther?
In the recent issue of Credo Magazine, “Luther at 500,” four pastors and scholars identified their favorite book by Martin Luther. This week we will be highlighting each.
“It is Luther’s great commentary on Galatians, because I read it immediately after my confirmation class (as I was 14-15 years). In fact, twice. Approximately 700 pages … It was especially through this commentary that I began to understand for the first time what God’s grace really means in my life. I used to say, I have been converted by Luther. I am one of his many disciplines. A modern one. Of course, all this only by God’s grace alone!”
