An informative anthology of Luther's writings, emphasizing his work as theologian, exegete and pastor.
"Professor Gritsch offers Catholics as well as Protestants Luther at his best on the interpretation of scripture, basic Christian affirmations of faith, spiritual and pastoral theology, and the good humor that should characterize a witness of Jesus Christ.”

"Martin Luther is an excellent introduction for those seeking basic information on Luther and the Protestant Reformation for the first time, as well as a ready handbook for those who wish to move beyond secondary sources to read several of Luther's most significant works in his own words. I commend it most highly.”
Bishop Harold C. Skillrud, D.D.

Southeastern Synod Co-Chair, Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue
"That a Catholic publishing house would engage one of our foremost Luther scholars to bring together a collection of Luther's writings for people today is something new and remarkable. Once in our hands, it seems so logical, needed and welcome.”
Rev. John F. Hotchkin
Executive Director, National Conference of Catholic Bishops
Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs
