For the benefit of those who may want to read these works in chronological order, the works in this volume are listed by order of composition year at the end of the table of contents.
As expected, this volume contains many of the familiar writings we associate with Luther, some in whole and others in part. (The Ninety-Five Theses, The Bondage of the Will, The Small Catechism, The Smalcald Articles, etc.) Most of these were familiar to me. I was most excited about the writings I was less familiar with in Part I: Luther The Man, especially Luther's will, selections from table talk and selected personal letters. These writings help to present a more personal side to Martin Luther that is sometimes lost in biographies and other academic works.
In addition to Luther's writings, there are several other things to note about this great volume. As you work through this book, you'll notice a number of the title pages from Luther's theological works in German, which have been reprinted here for your enjoyment. These title pages are quite beautiful and are in and of themselves art. There's a lot of symbolism in these pictures, so be sure to take the time to look them over. For those of you who want to do further study of Luther, there is a selected bibliography that comes before chapter one. It covers the following subject areas: 1. Primary Documents, 2. Bibliographies, 3. Martin Luther: Biography, 4. Martin Luther: Theology. The final feature I'd like to make note of is the CD-ROM that comes with the book. The CD-ROM is compatible with the Libronix Digital Library System from LOGOS Bible Software. It contains the full text of this book, a short biography of Luther, links to other resources, a research-paper guide, and a glossary.
Whether you're a layperson, theology student, pastor or a professor this book is a must for your library. The range of material covered will serve as a great introduction to the theological writings of Martin Luther. This book by itself is a great value. The Libronix-compatible CD is a bonus, allowing you to add this great work to both your print and digital library for one reasonable price.
Timothy F. Lull, editor, was President of Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, Berkley, and Professor of Systematic Theology there before his death in 2003.
William Russell is author of Luther's Theological Testament and translator of The Schmalkald Articles in The Book of Concord.
