In these four treatises, written between 1530 and 1542, we see Luther wrestling with volatile aspects of the Christian’s ethical attitude toward the governing authorities, toward other Christians who appeared to be preaching incorrect doctrines, and toward the Jews. This volume completes the section of Luther’s Works on the Christian in society.

    This was a hard read for me, considering it contains the two harsh writings of Luther against the Jewish people: “Against the Sabbatarians” and “On the Jews and their Lies”. I did not enjoy reading them, and I am very sad that Luther wrote them, especially the latter. I do think it is worthwhile for us to see the failure of our “heroes” - and for me, I see the danger of letting anger take control of your words. As a Lutheran Pastor, I do ask forgiveness for how these words of Luther, have been used against the Jewish people, especially by the Nazi party and their heirs. The other two works, were quite good reads :) Now on to Volume 48
