    About "Martin Luther"

    1. Martin Luther

      Martin Luther was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization.Luther 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 church.Luther s confrontation with Charles V at the Diet of Worms over freedom of conscience in 1521 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 unprecedented.His translation of the Bible into the vernacular, making it accessible to ordinary people, had a tremendous political impact on 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 Protestantism.Much 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 1933 45 As a result of this and his revolutionary theological views, his legacy remains controversial.

    1. This is my third reading of this Christian classic. It was even better than I remember it. Luther's sharp rose and clear analysis lose little in the translation from German. Worthwhile reading by any seeking to understand this important Biblical book.(Historical note: John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement, reported that his heart was listening to Luther's preface to Romans when his heart was "strangely warmed' in 1738, an event since referred to as his Aldersgate Experience. Methodists [...]

    2. Today, verse-for-verse commentaries on the books of the Bible are a dime a dozen. But in the early 16th century, they were a new thing in Biblical scholarship. Among the many revolutionary things in Biblical scholarship and church history Martin Luther did, his verse-by-verse commentary on Romans was one of the first. This volume, translated from the original German and abridged for a general audience, brings one of Martin Luther's first major works to the public. It was written two years before [...]

    3. A decent commentary on Romans, though not as good as Luther's Galatians commentary. The big down-side of this for me was that it's an abridgement, where the translator/editor went through and took out all the comments which were too "Catholic." (In the preface, this is justified by the fact that a "scholarly" edition of the complete Romans commentary was available to those who wanted it, this was just to be a devotional for those who follow what Luther's faith developed into.)Having said that, i [...]

    4. Luther was amazing! He was one of the first to break from the medieval methodology of teaching and preaching, and laid the modern method of exegetical preaching, teaching verse by verse through Romans. No wonder he started the Reformation-- he brilliantly discloses God's plans through Scripture, ignoring man's ideas and tradition. Wonderful insight on the book of Romans.

    5. I went through this book as a bible study and thought it was great. I loved it and GOD definitely showed me a lot about Romans through it.

    6. As a piece of history, helping us understand Lutheran thought, I give this a 4. As a commentary on Romans, I give it a 2 (only because there are a dozen or more I'd send someone to in order to understand Romans first). On the whole, a helpful work that offers sound insight into Paul's magnum opus. Mueller's additional comments and explanation are usually unnecessary and distracting.

    7. This book got better as it went along. Martin seems a bit muddled in the middle when trying to make the point that our only hope is Christ, while at the same time dealing with predestination. At times he seems to suggest that we should worry over our salvation and just hope for the best--instead of having confidence that we are part of the elect. He also intimates in several places that God is so Sovereign that even if we did our best, and sought God--but He chose to damn us--we should still res [...]

    8. Luther's Commentary on Romans stands as an important historical document for all Christians of the West because it was his study of Romans that more or less led to all of his other ideas. Anyone interested in Luther's thought process, then, should read this commentary for historical purposes. For Methodists, like me, this commentary takes on a bit of a special role, because it is Luther's Preface to his Commentary that inspired John Wesley's "heart strangely warmed" moment. Once you read the Pre [...]

    9. Most books are rated related to their usefulness and contributions to my research.Overall, a good book for the researcher and enthusiast.Read for personal research- found this book's contents helpful and inspiring - number rating relates to the book's contribution to my needs.

    10. Both a fascinating look at the Roman Catholic monk/professor coming to grips with Pauline thought and a penetrating commentary on the book of Romans. Truly a life-changing book.

    11. This early work of Luther's serves as a good introduction to his writings. That being said, there are certainly more in-depth commentaries on Romans out there.

    12. A good introduction to Luther's early work, but not nearly as good as his commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians which he called "my Katie von Bora."
