This is an excellent book to read along with the Bible. Luther really goes in depth into the Ten Commandments, the Lord's Prayer and the Creed, as well as the meaning behind the Sacraments. Definitely helps to foster a deeper understanding. Will definitely read multiple times.
Really good book that explains the basics all Christians need to know and seldom take for granted. Luther takes great pains to explain the basics in sufficient detail and clarity, the only part that i can say sort of lost me was the part on baptism but after reading through it the second time around I was all good.

Great Clarity from the book and the glory must go to God alone who used the man.
This is an excellent primer for all Christians on the basic supplements to Christian thought and practice. Found within are commentaries to the ten commandments, the apostles' creed, and the sacrements of Baptism and Eucharist. I've read all sorts of adult catechism material but somehow missed this one. I'd love to see an updated version, i.e. Eugene Peterson reworks Luther's Large Catechism.
Interesting, because you pick up on Luther's personality at times.

You also get a little sense of how important being a father was to Luther.

I don't think I will read it again anytime soon, but it had some interesting stuff in it.
A great work to be read more than once.

I'm always humbled by the bit about this book being written for "children" and the "simple minded".
It has great questions and helps.

Martin Luther was a German monk, theologian, university professor and church reformer whose ideas inspired the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization.

Luther's theology challenged the authority of the papacy by holding that the Bible is the only infallible source of religious authority and that all baptized Christians under Jesus are a spiritual priesthood. According...more
