The Birth of Protestantism  Aug 17, 2008
This volume of the Martin Luther series is perhaps one of the most valuable due to its content, which is laid out in chronological order from 1517 to 1520. The merit of this to the careful reader is that the development of Luther's "new" evangelical theology, from its early stages in his "Disputation Against Scholastic Theology" to its most mature and inspirational in "The Freedom of a Christian," is evident from its infancy to maturity. In addition to these two works are included Luther's 95 theses, his "Explanations of the 95 Theses," the "Heidelberg Disputation," along with a few other lesser works. This volume, however, captures the heart of the great Reformer and thereby offers a small peek inside his mind. Minimal notes and introductions are included, though what is here is valuable. Each included work has its own introduction which includes a short bibliography. Unfortunately, this is a reprint from 1957 and the bibliography is therefore sorely out of date. On the plus side, the introductions link the writings together well, giving enough of a raison d'être to make the historical situation pertinent to the non-specialist. No theology is done in a vacuum.

The first two works included are the most difficult to read as they are not laid out in paragraph form, but in numbered sentences, because they were intended for debate. It takes a little more effort to read through these writings, but if the reader will, she will be greatly rewarded when she comes upon his later, less academically stylized writings. One can see the seeds of Luther's great doctrines of "Justification by Faith," "Scripture Alone," "Faith Alone," and "Grace Alone" present in the earlier works. Luther was still working them out in the 95 Theses stage of life, but there was no doubt in his mind what the consequences of his discovery were, both for the individual and for the Catholic church. It is fascinating to read "The Freedom of a Christian" and read the utter joy with which Luther presents the truth. It is true that he had a sarcastic side as evidenced by the letter to Pope Leo X, which was supposed to be conciliatory, yet it does not quite come across that way.

The translation work is done by several people but it is not noticeable. The editors made an effort to remain faithful in clarity, even if literal wording had to be sacrificed in some places. The text also includes footnotes, but they are kept down to the barest minimum, only where there may be an important historical or Scriptural reference which might be missed by the contemporary reader. The advantage of this is that the reader is not bombarded by little footnote numbers interrupting their reading and slowing them down. These works by Martin Luther deserve to be read by anyone calling himself Protestant, because they are the backbone which support the frame. Whether they admit it or not, know it or not, appreciate it or not, Luther did most of the hard work in his career. The hardest years of which are included in this book.
