How would a layperson benefit from reading Luther’s work?
Jesse, there are several benefits for a layperson from reading Luther’s works. First, he clearly proclaims the Word of God, so you will be edified in faith and love. Second, he is a great teacher, so you will learn much about holy things, church history, secular history, and other important knowledge. Third, he is wise, so you will learn much prudence for dealing with hard situations in your own life. In summary, this volume consists of sermons Luther preached to laypeople, so it is certainly going to be useful to all. Where there is unfamiliar content, Dr. Christopher Boyd Brown has done a fantastic job explaining it in the footnotes.
