Today is Blessed Martin Luther's birthday. Our father in the faith, Dr. Martin Luther, is described in the Lutheran Confessions as the "chief teacher of the churches of the Augsburg Confession" and as such he is honored, not for his person, but for the blessings that God gave to His church through this great Reformer and Confessor. Often people ask me, "What are the best things I can read that Martin Luther wrote?" Here's a great list, courtesy of the Lutheranism 101 blog site. I took the liberty of putting Bondage of the Will last, since it is such a heavily philosophical tome, strong medicine, I would recommend it be read last in this list, rather than at number six.
Top Ten List of Luther's Writings, beginning at #10:
* 10. Bondage of the Will (1525) Sinful human beings are not free to choose between God or the devil, good or evil, salvation or damnation. Luther shows that, instead, God chose us Christians.
