Item description for Luther's Works, Volume 52: Sermons II (Luthers Works - Augsburg #52) by Hans J. Hillerbrand, Helmut T. Lehmann & Martin Luther...
Overview Martin Luther observed on one occasion that "the Postil is the very best book I ever wrote". Luther wrote the Postil during his exile on the Wartburg between 1521 and 1522. Intended to provide homiletical material to be used by ministers in the exposition of the gospel, it does not contain actual sermons preached by Luther, but sermon guides, homilies written by him for other preachers. This volume includes selections from the Christmas Postil, specifically sermons on the gospel lessons for Christmas Eve, the Early Christmas Service, the Main Christmas Service, St. Stephen's Day, the Sunday after Christmas, New Year's Day, and the Festival of the Epiphany.
