The late Martin Luther – the father of the Protestant Reformation – leaves behind his scholarly and classic commentary on Galatians for Luther Classic Commentaries. This book is an absolute necessity for anyone doing a study of the Book of Galatians. Luther lays out his gospel of grace in a very readable, fluid format.


3) The Bondage of the Will

The Bondage of the Will (first published in 1525) was Martin Luther’s  reply to Erasmus’s On Free Will.  This particular book was published in 2011 by CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform and translated by Henry Cole.  The book itself is a classic, with Luther absolutely destroying Erasmus’ view of free will at every turn using Biblical refutation, logical examples, and often crude personal attacks.

4) Luther’s Small Catechism, with Explanation



Luther’s Small Catechism, with Explanation was printed in 2005 by Concordia Publishing and features scripture references taken from the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible.  The original text was written by Luther in 1529 and explores the Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine: the Ten Commandments, the Apostles Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, Confession, and the Sacrament of the Altar. There are also daily prayers, a table of duties for Christians in their various callings in life, and a Holy Communion guide.

5) A Simple Way to Pray


A Simple Way to Pray
List Price: $15.00
Price: $15.00
Price Disclaimer


A Simple Way to Pray was written by Martin Luther in 1535 after his barber asked him for a short guide on how to pray.  Still, this guide is timeless and remains appropriate today. Since it was written for a layman, it is simply written, easy to understand and, still, profound.
