Luther’s Works: Prefaces I  The newest volume in the extension of Luther’s Works, offering many previously untranslated prefaces Luther wrote for a wide variety of books. Never before in English, this volume presents Luther’s prefaces from 1520–32 for the writings of both colleagues and opponents. In Luther’s day, the preface was sometimes the most important part of the book. The preface used the most beautiful of language to praise the author, his work, and his arguments—and to decry his opponents. Publishers knew that having Luther’s preface brought instant fame to any book. Some of Luther’s prefaces are short, witty, and incisive; others are as long as treatises, with thorough discussions of important theology. Satirical, earnest, tender, combative—in his prefaces Luther is all these things. Over and over, Luther calls his readers to remember why the Reformation was needed, and not to take it for granted. Reminder:  Become a subscriber and save!

Lutheranism 101: The Lord’s Supper  Here you stand, wondering what the Lord’s Supper is all about. Well, let us introduce you to the latest addition to the Lutheranism 101 family! LUTHERANISM 101: THE LORD’S SUPPER examines what Scripture and the Confessions have to say about Jesus’ gift of His true body to eat and His true blood to drink. What Lutherans believe and teach about the Lord’s Supper makes us distinct from all other Christians. We believe the Lord’s Supper is a life-giving blessing given by God to the Church. It is a miracle in bread and wine established by the God-man Jesus Christ. Using the same conversational style and design as Lutheranism 101, THE LORD’S SUPPER gives

• An overview of Jesus’ teaching regarding the Lord’s Supper
• A discussion of problems that happen when some either don’t believe what Scripture says about His Supper, or try to say more than Scripture says
• A discussion of how belief in who Jesus is affects what we believe about the Sacrament and what we receive.

    Why is it that not all of Luther’s works/writings have not been translated yet?

      Ah…well…we are doing our part, but….if you have ever seen the wall of massive tomes containing all his extant works, you’ll know why.

      : )

      Plus, he is kind wordy and repetitive. Just like my sermons.

    Thanks so much for making these new volumes available.

      You bet, it’s kind of classic Luther in those prefaces, just never know quite what he’s going to do a riff on.
