As a Christian who is always seeking to learn more about people of the faith, having a book by Martin Luther on hand is ideal. Historically, his works have always been written from a unique (yet still devout) perspective imploring people of Christ to do their bidding in a more pure and chaste way.
His Epiphany and Easter sermons are somewhat hard to read from a novice perspective, but once you get the hang of the semi-academic style of writing the ancient texts are so fond of using, you begin to see the messages he believed God wanted us to hear. To turn away from greed, sexual impurity, judgement, and snap judgments against our fellow man are all things the Bible clearly suggests. Martin Luther was a great priest and certainly knew how to convince an audience to follow the ways and the words of God.
I recommend this book for anyone looking to grow in their faith with God, particularly people who love the challenge of reading historical texts. Even the non-religious may find some use for this book, either in gaining more perspective on attitudes of the times or finding a way to learn about how modern Christianity got its roots. It's a reading both for pastors and laymen alike, one that inspires and gives hope to any generation. I believe that the will of Christ has been done through Martin Luther's awe-inspiring words and powerful speeches here in this sermon series.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
