This one-volume reference used to be in three, smaller volumes. So yes, the size of this text, at times, can be unwieldy, but what a trove of quotations! Luther was a master of theology and Plass's selections show a broad range of the subjects he wrote about and preached on. This volume is definitely worth the investment for anyone who may need an applicable quotation or desires to delve into Luther's thoughts.

This anthology of Martin Luther's writings, sermons, and teachings is an excellent tool for any Christian to use as a devotional guide or a reference book. It provides easy access to the thoughts, beliefs, and ideas of Luther in a user-friendly format, and is not overly cumbersome. It deserves a prominent spon in every Christian's library

What a buy this is! Five stars and counting, I say. This is a great anthology. Buyer, you cannot go wrong. The binding is excellent, so too the paper and the print. This print is 9.5.

If you want a treasure chest of great ideas on God and theology and the Bible is general from one who saturated himself with the Word, this is it.

The Blurb:

"...the yeoman's labor of a single editor, Ewald M. Plass, contained within this volume speaks for itself. The German language abilities of the editor, with regards to his copious reading of Luther, selections of texts, organization of texts, and original translations speaks to the skill and erudition that went into the production of this tome!"

Ewald M. Plass (ed.). What Luther Says. Concordia Publishing House, 2006. 1667pp. $49.99.

I am very glad to see the re-release of this book. The original publication was a shelf-filling three volumes, each of which was the same thickness of this newly published one volume edition. One volume, for me, is always better than three! The inside-matter seems to have the same type set and layout as the three volume set, the paper thickness is simply thinner; much like Bible paper. This volume, as I will also note below, came before many of the English translations of Luther's written works, notably the ground-breaking American Edition (ed. Jaroslov Pelican, et. al.). At the time of the original publication of this book, no other volume existed that provided such a helpful tool to the arm-chair to schooled Luther-scholar. Therefore, its impact was immediately felt. Also, the yeoman's labor of a single editor, Ewald M. Plass (et. al. - that is, an advising committee), contained within this volume speaks for itself. The German language abilities of the editor, with regards to his copious reading of Luther, selections of texts, organization of texts, and original translations also speaks to the skill and erudition that went into the production of this tome.

Excellent, simply excellent, if one wishes to capture a glimpse and indeed more, if you seek to advise anyone in pastoral way buy this book, Luther was a man who took all problems to the word, wrestled in the word with the problems and then brought the answer out of the word, you may not alas agree with him, but alas he WILL make you think!

If you are like many Christians I know, then you have been bombarded with all sorts of criticisms against Luther and his writings. This compilation of his teachings, however, demonstrates to a modern reader why Luther is known as "the Great Reformer," and gives a more balanced and exhaustive look at what he really believed. His writings are especially needed today when so many professing Evangelicals are finding their way back to Rome! As Luther predicted in his own day: "The situation is destined to become worse later on, so that the entire world will oppose the Gospel, cast reflections on this Word, and condemn it." We see this happening even now with the progress of the Ecumenical Movement and the march toward world unity, inspired by the Pope. The Gospel is continually compromised so that the world religions can find "peace" together. But as Luther said: "You papists will never accomplish what you intend, do what you will. To this Gospel, which I, Martin Luther, have preached, pope, bishops, monks, kings, princes, devil, death, sin and everything that is not Christ and in Christ shall give way. They shall be subdued by this Gospel. Nothing can help them escape." Luther, of course, looked forward to the Lord's return when He will judge the world and "destroy with everlasting destruction" those who do not obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 1:8-9).
