If one thinks they know Luther because they are familiar with the Lutheran church, then they need to read this book. Speaking on subjects one might speak of today, you can see the praticality of this great reformer. When standing against all odds, he spoke truth, when it was not at all popular to speak the truth. This is a must read for anyone desiring to know Luther, or even understand how controversial a person Luther really was.

The "Table Talk" of Martin Luther are the uncensored remarks (recorded by his supporters) that Luther made at the dinner table, with family and friends. They range from the profound, to the humorous, to the vulgar, to even some patently offensive remarks (such as some about Jewish persons on pages 239 and 426).

He recounted how a confessor once told him, "'God is not angry with you, but you are angry with God.' This was magnificently said, although it was before the light of the gospel." (Pg. 15)

He recalled that when he was a monk and interpreting the Bible, "I allegorized everything. Afterward through the Epistle to the Romans I came to some knowledge of Christ. I recognized then that allegories are nothing." (Pg. 46) Later, he states that his earliest books are now "offensive not only to my adversaries but also to me." (Pg. 213) He also suggests, significantly, that "We should throw the Epistle of James out of this school, for it doesn't amount to much. It contains not a syllable about Christ." (Pg. 424)

He says that Zwingli "made the mistake of thinking that he knew everything, that theology is an easy art. But I know that I have yet to comprehend the Lord's Prayer." (Pg. 51) More harshly, he opines that "Zwingli and Erasmus are nothing but wormy nuts that taste like cr_p in one's mouth." (Pg. 73)

When experiencing sexual temptation, he admits, "Copious drinking benefits me when I am in this condition. But I would not advise a young person to drink more..." (Pg. 18) He defends infant baptism, arguing that "Christ commanded that all nations be taught and baptized, and this included children." (Pg. 113) He asserts that the pope is "the masked and incarnate devil because he is the Antichrist." (Pg. 346) The legends of the saints are "so full of shameful lies that it's astonishing." (Pg. 475)

Seldom boring, Luther's Table Talk is essential reading for getting a "complete" portrait of the man.

A Wow! read. There is no theological book like Table Talk. You get to sit around Luther's table and listen in on conversations about anything and everything. Some of its very funny. We read it at Charnock Institute of the Bible.

With these selections from the Table Talk you can get into the mind of Luther, gain historical perspective, and pick up nuggets of wisdom throughout. It's great for lighter reading because you don't have to keep a train of thought for long periods of time. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants insight into Luther's life apart from polemics and disputations.
