Luther Reading List Updated

About the Author
David Wagschal

Time to get this blog going again!

My reading list is still quite modest, and certainly a work in progress, but, voila:

David’s Annotated Luther Reading List – October 2016

Why read Luther?

  1. It’s amazing how few theologians really know anything about him.
  2. His influence, acknowledged or not, is incredibly pervasive (this guy’s already in your head in all sorts of ways).
  3. Luther represents something really very new and different. You may not like him in the end, but after you read him, it’s amazing how Barth or Aquinas, Athanasius or Calvin, Augustine or Pseudo-Dionysius … they all kinda start sounding the same. (Doubt it? Try it.)

Have fun!

  1. Finally, a good annotated bibliography of Luther. Thank you, David for your research and insight. I just downloaded the Small Catechism as encouraged by our ELCA bishop for this year preceding the Reformation anniversary. I started with Luther’s preface and only wished I had read it when last I studied this work in Confirmation classes long ago.
