Protestant reformer Martin Luther wrote many revolutionary works in his lifetime, but he also preached hundreds of sermons in churches and universities. This collection gathers eight of them into a convenient source for easy reference. Luther's classic image in the Christian church makes him a relevant and familiar choice for allusion. Much as Shakespeare's did for literature, Luther's phrases, such as "sola scriptura" (scripture alone), "sola fide" (faith alone), and "law and gospel," entered mainstream religious language. Luther preaches here on many topics, including "The Parable of the Sower," "Enemies of the Cross of Christ," and "Of the Office of Preaching." This last message is particularly relevant to modern pastors or those who share the message of good news as it gives suggestions and warning about preaching. And this advice, coming from the mouth of one of Christian history's most important figures, should surely be heeded. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer
