The first in point of time, the Hebrews lectures, were delivered in the "Theses" year, Luther was finishing his lectures on Hebrews when he was summoned to Heidelberg to attend a convention of the German Augustinians order in April Presumably the Augustinians were to settle the controversy precipitated by Luther in the Ninety-five Theses, but instead of receiving a rebuke, Luther gained a new following at Heidelberg, especially among the younger theologians.
This volume contains sermons on the first and second Epistles of St. Peter, sermons on the Epistle of St. Jude, and lectures on the first Epistle of St. The young Luther emerges in this volume in his role of reformer. We follow him through his early years of clarifying his evangelical doctrines and relive with him the stirring events that were to influence the fate of Germany, all of Europe, and eventually the whole world.

On the Bondage of the Will was considered by Luther himself as one of his best writings. Included in this volume are four of the debates or disputations held in Wittenberg University between and Thirteen of the fourteen treatises appear in their entirety in an English translation for the first time with publication of this volume.

This volume includes two writings dealing with the plight of the common person who Luther felt had become a victim of the ecclesiastical establishment. Conflict between the church of Rome and the reformers reached its most violent peak in the five years before the Council of Trent in , a council the pope had been delaying for years. Luther had not only given up hope for a "free, Christian council," but had also come to the conclusion that the authority of such a council was limited to reaffirming the ancient faith of the apostles.
It is this doctrine of the church which is the theme of the three treatises written during this period and included in this volume. These are not devotional writings in the sense of being edifying discourses or daily meditations for the cultivation of general spiritual sensitivity. Rather they are concrete expressions of evangelical faith and piety written by Luther the Pastor to deal with specific and burning life situations. Although his very life was literally at stake, Luther does not allude to his own situation, but subdues himself to the message with which he was committed. During the interval between the Leipzig Debate in and the dramatic, decisive Diet of Worms in , Luther faced a wide array of major problems.
He was forced to defend the emerging Reformation against its secular and ecclesiastical enemies and to clarify his own position. In the eleven treatises comprising this volume, it is of extraordinary interest to note how the foremost exponent of evangelical ethics interprets the dictates of love in the concrete circumstances of his time.

Martin Luther was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization. Luther's theology challenged the authority of the papacy by holding that the Bible is the only infallible source of religious authority and that all baptized Christians under Jesus are a spiritual priesthood. According Martin Luther was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization.
According to Luther, salvation was a free gift of God, received only by true repentance and faith in Jesus as the Messiah, a faith given by God and unmediated by the church. Luther's confrontation with Charles V at the Diet of Worms over freedom of conscience in and his refusal to submit to the authority of the Emperor resulted in his being declared an outlaw of the state as he had been excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church.
Because of the perceived unity of the medieval Church with the secular rulers of western Europe, the widespread acceptance of Luther's doctrines and popular vindication of his thinking on individual liberties were both phenomenal and unprecedented.
His translation of the Bible into the vernacular, making it more accessible to ordinary people, had a tremendous political impact on the church and on German culture. It furthered the development of a standard version of the German language, added several principles to the art of translation, and influenced the translation of the English King James Bible.
His hymns inspired the development of congregational singing within Christianity.
