Reviews - What do customers think about Martin Luther: Prophet to the Church Catholic?
"Sin Bravely...but more bravely still Believe in Christ" Feb 18, 2009
More astonishing than this book's high knowledge and reasoning is its even higher level of Christian Faith.
It describes Luther as a prophet to the true Church hidden to those who lack faith in Christ and ultimately in God: the heartbeat of Christianity always was and remains the Christ of the Gospels.
On December 11, 1983, John Paul II became the first Pope in history to officially visit a Lutheran church. According to Mark A. Knoll (evangelical Christian historian, now a professor Notre Dame) this book helped mark the event (see page 91 of Uncivil Religion: Interreligious Hostility in America, Edited by Robert N. Bellah and Frederick E. Greenspahn, Crossroad 1987). Also according to Knoll, Catholics published, in kind, the book Luther: A Reformer for the Churches (Paulist Press, 1983) by Mark Edwards and George H. Tavard.
