Martin Luther

Audio Books
Commentary on St. Paul's Epistle to the Galatians
Martin LUTHER (1483 - 1546), translated by Theodore GRAEBNER (1876 - 1950)
Martin Luther strove to give a verse by verse exegesis of the Epistle to the Galatians in the work. The original work, written in Latin in around 1516, was much longer. This translation by Theodore Graebner strove to produce a copy of the work in a format and with wording much more applicable to the general English-speaking American public. (Summary by Timothy Perkins)

On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church
Martin LUTHER (1483 - 1546), translated by Robert Scarlett GRIGNON (1822 - 1885)
Early in the course of the Reformation (1520) Martin Luther penned a trilogy of foundational documents addressing the German Nobility, the Church and the Christian. "On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church" appeared second. In it, Luther sifts the wheat from the chaff as regards the seven sacraments of the Roman Church. (Summary by Jonathan Lange)
