A Tidbit from the Life of Erasmus

erasmus2In 1500 Erasmus wrote a friend these lines:

My Greek studies are almost too much for my courage; while I have not the means of purchasing books, or the help of a teacher. And while I am in all this trouble, I have scarcely the wherewithal to sustain life; so much is our learning worth to us!

Erasmus valued learning and teaching above eating.  Most of our contemporaries value eating more, so that while they are happy to spend $60 on a dinner out they cringe at the thought of spending that much on a great book.

We live in strange times.

Buy The Commentary at a Discount- In Honor of Luther’s Wedding Day

That’s right, you can buy the PDF’s of the entire commentary from yours truly for a paltry $199  $149 by clicking my PayPal Link.  It’s that simple.  It’s a good commentary. Here’s what a lawyer in Wisconsin says about it:

This commentary set is written and designed exactly for the average person. The person who hasn’t spent years in book learning and writing papers. Rather, it’s for a person who feels a yearning to know a bit more so they can grow spiritually and intellectually in the faith. The average person might not know where to start on the journey. This set does it beautifully. – Doug Iverson
