Luther is sometimes a rather dense read and without some guidance it’s simply a fact that a lot of students don’t know what to make of him.
Accordingly, the Fortress Annotated Luther comes highly recommended (by me). I’ve read the first five volumes and find them wholly useful and not terribly inaccurate.
It’s Luther’s birthday. Buy yourself some Luther along with some really helpful guidance in terms of understanding him. You can’t get Luther a gift- but you can get yourself the gift of Luther.
And no, Fortress didn’t ask me to say that nor did they give me any of Luther’s books to do it. It comes from my magnanimously helpful heart. You’re welcome.
