I only have one thing to say: "Get everything you can written by Martin Luther and read it until it becomes a part of your soul." He is a master teacher and well worth the effort. The more I read the better Christian I become. There are concepts here that are revolutionary that changed my understanding of Christianity. And that is said by a Presbyterian Minister who has Calvin etched on his heart!!! When preparing sermons I always pull out Calvin and Barth, but I am amazed at how beautiful and powerful Luther is--and worth reading and reflecting on also. Read Luther, then read Luther some more, then read Luther again and again and again and again, and you will make progress, if this is your earnest goal, in the Christian life. Truly a church father for the ages!!

This is a condensed version of the original, and that's a good thing. The original, Latin, version runs to about 800 pages and full, verbatim translations run about 1500 pages. What remains in this excellent edition, translated and compiled by Theodore Graebner, contains the essence of Luther's teachings. Luther considered the book of Galatians to be his favorite and the one most useful for showing the true meaning of grace vs works.

You will notice a lot of time is spent attacking the Pope, Luther's former order of monks, and the Catholic Church in general. Please do not set the book aside because of that...besides preserving the historical and personal goings-on that Luther had to deal with during his life, it remains a common belief in many parts of the Christian world today that people teach and believe that sanctification is achieved, or maintained, through works. It is important to understand the book of Galatians in order to debate against that doctrine and lead people to the truth. I read a blog post just a few days ago by a person who said that the Bible never says justification is through faith alone...so knowing how to present Galatians to such people is important, and this book is an excellent aid in learning the doctrine of justification through faith.

There are a few typos, and it would be nice if there were a different font used for the text of the Bible to set it off from the words of Luther, but overall, this is an excellent ebook rendering of the commentary.

That such an important text can be made freely available to everyone is the highest and best use of modern technology. Please get this book, it's free...so what's the worst that can happen...you spend a couple days reading a book that is, at the very least, an important historical document and, at best, an inspired commentary on the book that tells us, once and for all, that our salvation lies in faith in Christ alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luther's definitive commentary September 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The central place of this commentary cannot be overstated. It is THE pivotal work setting the stage for basic understanding of Martin Luther, the great Protestant Reformer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for all Christians December 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very good for devotional use. It will help you keep from confusing Law and Gospel or Justification and Sanctification which is so common among Christians today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand the modern writing style. April 4, 2012

Excellent book, but still a very complex topic. I expect to read this book many times as it deals with the gospel in relation to law. Paul's letter to the Galations is crucial to understanding the gospel, and these commentries are enlightening and nurturing.

This is my first writing of Martin Luther's that I have looked at. I have known of his fame for decades, and finally decided to see what he wrote. It is very sound, doctrinally, and very uplifting, too.

The error of the Galatians is also a problem of the modern church. By nature we fall into the trap of works righteousness. Luther beautifully expounds upon Paul's words. He consistently turns our attention to Christ, the only source of our salvation. You will be blessed by this book. Btw, read the intro's.
