A Long Awaited Devotional Mar 13, 2007
With, Faith Alone: A Daily Devotional, the english world has a long awaited devotional in their hands. On these pages you will find Luther speaking for everyday, as he explains the Word, and applies the texts with his always practical counsel and advice. In light of the fact that Luther did not write many commentaries this a rich resource to be daily nourished by what God taught Luther as he searched the Scriptures and found consolation on its pages for weary pilgrims.
refreshingly straight forward and to the point Jan 23, 2006
I am very familiar with his spot in church history, but not too familiar with Luther's writings. I like this devotional-- it is an excellent reminder of the call to believers that "we live by faith, not by sight" and that we rest because of Christ's work, not our own. I've been encouraged, challenged, and prodded to follow Christ whole-heartedly as I've read through the selections of the last few months.
Living "Faith Alone" Nov 23, 2005
Having read through the Roland Bainton biography of Luther ("Here I Stand"), then watching the recently released video of the Reformer's life ("Luther"), I was very interested in reading some of the writings of this incredible man. Along comes "Faith Alone" which has whetted my appetite for more.
Although I am not a big suporter of daily devotionals, this one has the advantage of having an index that lists the subject matter for each day at the close of the book. It is a joy to be able to read Martin Luther's thoughts on practical, living Christianity in a modern, concise translation.
My appreciation for Luther, and what God did through his life, is magnified through "Faith Alone." I encourage those who would like to be strengthened and find courage to stand in the midst of trial to consider the words of Luther in this devotional book.
Excellent Devotional: Insightful, Accessible and Challenging Nov 18, 2005
"Faith Alone" is an outstanding resource for anyone interested in profound and provoking daily passages from one the of the greats of the Christian faith. The selections from Luther's sermons and writing, each linked with Scripture, provide great wisdom relevant to everyday living (trusting God, finances, relationships) as well as key theological teachings. The themes covered include a nice range of topics and the passages themselves are refreshing and challenging. The translation is extremely readible. This book is a great combination of thoughtful insight married to an extremely accessible format of short daily readings. Add this to your list of "devotional greats"!
