Luther's 'Divine Discourses' (as this book was known) stirred up so much anger in the Roman Catholic Church that all copies were ordered to be burnt under an edict by Pope Gregory XIII.

Warm, unguarded talk around the table with friends that gives a sense of the friendships and discussions that Martin and Katie were involved in.
Funny, at times brilliant, opinionated, humble, sometimes sharp. This collection really lets you know the man Martin Luther. Also, I found the style relaxing enough that I could pick it up almost anytime and read it with ease - something I can't do with most books. Recommended for anyone wanting to learn more about the great reformer.
Luther would have been fun to have a beer with. This invaluable book lets us see what that would have been like for real.
This is an above-average collection, though not quite so thorough. Some selections are simply meh, while others are great.
