“America does not realize what an inheritance she has received from Luther and the Lutheran Reformation. The best way to understand Luther is to have Luther himself speak. His writings are so extensive that there is no trouble in finding something profitable for almost every occasion and condition in life. – Rev. John Sander
If Luther is mentioned positively at all, it’s usually in the context of The Bondage of the Will. This is sad. The true glory and wisdom of Martin Luther is most evident in his sermons, which he strove to make accessible to everyone.
Dr. Lenker, of blessed memory, who did so much to make Luther’s sermons available in English rightly said, “Read Luther! The Faith of the Fathers in the Language of the Children!”
This Lutheran Library republication of Devotional Readings from Luther’s Works is dedicated to R. K., without whom this book might well have been forgotten.
